Boys Tennis: History not on the side of Brashear tandem

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Each of the last three years the City League doubles champion has received an automatic invitation to the PIAA Class AAA tournament at Hershey Racquet Club.

Each of those years, the representative lost in straight sets.

Not only that, the three tandems have only won a total of three games in their three matches. Last season, the Obama Academy team of Krishnan and Rajan Alagar were shut out, 6-0, 6-0, by Steve Yang and Max Howarth, the District 1 champions from Conestoga.

This time it will be a team from Brashear that takes a chance at stopping a long run of City League futility in the state tournament. Seniors Dalton Link and Kevin Goodbread will be making the first appearance for the Bulls in the PIAA Class AAA doubles finals since the sport split into two classifications in 1999.

Joe Bendel profiles Brashear graduate Henri Wade-Chatman, who is now a standout basketball player at Edinboro.

"Edinboro University basketball standout Henri Wade-Chatman earned a 3.1 grade-point average as a communications major the past two semesters. It is that number more than any other — including his 1,000-plus career points and 20.9-point scoring average — that invigorates coach Pat Cleary.

"He turned it around academically, and I couldn't be more proud of him for it," Cleary said of Wade-Chatman, a Brashear High School graduate and senior shooting guard for the Fighting Scots. "He came here as a high-risk student. Now, he's a steady 3.0-guy for us."

Wade-Chatman was forced to write appeal letters to the Deans of CCAC and Edinboro to remain enrolled at each institution because of academic struggles. He attended CCAC for a year before moving on to Edinboro, where he sat out the 2012-13 season.

He remains grateful that he got second and third opportunities."
