The Cardinal O’Hara tennis team owned singles play Monday, with straight-sets wins by Dominic Degnan, Ryan Shields and Andrew Shuda paving the way for a 4-1 Catholic League win over Bonner-Prendergast for the Lions (1-2, 1-1).

The second doubles tandem of Ryan Kerrigan and James O’Connor notched the Friars’ only point in a 6-4, 6-4 triumph.

Duwaine Jenkins and Nazir Clark-Crooms notched the other singles victories for the Knights (2-0), who claimed career win No. 570 for coach Reggie Day.

In the Central League:

Lower Merion 7, Strath Haven 0: Jeff Himelstein battled Matt Chen to a 6-4 first set at second singles, but that’s the closest a Panthers got to a set win as Haven (4-2, 3-1) fell.
