The Fort Payne boys tennis team ended its historic run at the AHSAA Class 6A State Tennis Championships last week, finishing with two points for 16th place in the classification.

Montgomery Academy won the 6A championship with 52 points.

The Fort Payne boys won their first sectional title in program history and advanced to the state competition for just the second time in program history — the previous state appearance was in 1996.

The Wildcats included Kristopher Boyette, Shao Chen, Elijah Morgan, Austin Evans, David Allen Fischer, Julian Barber, Bryson Lyles and Anthony Chhim.

The team was led by head coach Stormy Stevens and assistant coaches Logan Wright and Amy Fischer.
