Pete Rochat rifles a backhand in Tuesday night’s match.


Rochat’s state run ends with first round loss

College Station -- After a day-long rain delay at Texas A&M’s Mitchell Tennis Center, play in the UIL State Tennis Tournament finally got underway with matches at 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12.

Hondo’s Pete Rochat, competing in 4A boys’ singles, had his run at state cut short, with a quarterfinal loss to Bellville’s Westin Jablonowski, 6-1, 6-1.

The match had originally been scheduled for 8 a.m.

For Rochat, an HHS junior and the Region IV singles champion, it concluded a hectic week of competition, which saw him go to Oklahoma City with the Hondo FFA national reserve champion Land Judging team, then on a flight to Los Angeles to compete with the national finalist Hondo BPA team, before returning home and heading to College Station for the state tennis tourney.

Opening round matches were expected to continue until well after midnight, before resuming on Wednesday with the semifinals.

The original schedule called for both the quarterfinal and semifinal matches to be played in all divisions in all conferences on Tuesday – a total of 180 matches.

It was Rochat’s second trip to state. Last year, he teamed with his brother Jack, a 2014 HHS graduate, to win a bronze medal in boys’ doubles.
