Valencia tennis player Tyler Gottshall won the San Diego Junior Doubles tournament.

 

Valencia high tennis player Tyler Gottshall won first place at the 24th Annual San Diego Junior Doubles Tennis Tournament this past weekend.

Gottshall, who was the Vikings No. 2 singles player this season, behind Jack Zapala, competed in the tournament placing first in the 16-under division with his partner Steven Harlan of Palm Springs.

The 6-foot-4 junior and his partner swept the field 22 teams winning all five of their matches on their way to clinching the title.

Gottshall's results at the tournament, held at The Barnes Tennis Center in Point Loma, count toward both his Southern California and National ranking. He also had success this season with Zapala as his doubles partner, having clinched the title as the No. 1 duo in the Foothill League and making it to the quarterfinals of the CIF individual playoffs, the furthest a doubles team has ever gone in the SCV.

At the end of 2007, Gottshall and Zapala were ranked No. 6 as a doubles team in Southern California.
