Ryan Riordan profiles Canon-McMillan boys tennis player Chris Gladden.

"An injury caused Chris Gladden to miss all of the area's top high school tennis tournaments last season, but Gladden, a Canon-McMillan sophomore, is back and better than ever.

Gladden captured the Class AA Section 5 singles tournament last week, not losing even a game in three matches.

"It's been really good being back out there," Gladden said. "I was really anxious for sections because I was hoping to go to WPIALs."

Gladden played well at districts this week, beating 2013 WPIAL runner-up Peter Hazlett of Mt. Lebanon in the quarterfinals before losing to defending WPIAL champ Adam Blasinsky of Central Catholic in the semifinals."
