Teddy Snyder figured he was going to be in for a tough match in the Flight 1 singles final against Reading High’s Zach Schrader at the BCIAA flight tournament.

He was right.

After nearly three hours, the Exeter junior beat the defending champ 6-7 (6-8), 6-3, 7-6 to earn the title, which helped him be voted the boys tennis Player of the Year by the league’s coaches.

“He (Schrader) is a tough player and I knew either of us could win,” said Snyder, a repeat All-Berks selection. “I knew it was going to be a three-set match; I’d say I got lucky in this one.”

On-court talent and mental toughness had something to do with the victory, as well.

Snyder also reached the District 3 Class 3A quarterfinals and teamed with Jake Tryanski to advance to the District 3 Class 3A doubles quarterfinals.
