Butler's Will Nesbitt shrugs when asked if he has any other major tournament victories or tennis accolades.
"Not really," the understated senior said. "It's mostly WPIALs -- that's my big thing."
Bigger than most. In fact -- twice as big.
Nesbitt won his second consecutive WPIAL Class AAA singles tournament championship, capping a run to the title as a No. 4 seed with a 6-3, 6-4, victory against Vivek Nimgaonkar of Shady Side Academy this past Friday at North Allegheny.
"I played loose up until the very end," Nesbitt said. "I just basically was able to play to my max potential."
Nesbitt will attend Lock Haven University beginning in the fall. He will study something in the biology field but not play collegiate tennis.
Nesbitt lost in the first round of the PIAA Class AAA singles tournament last year. He will be heading to Hershey again next month for this season's championships.
"To be honest, I'm playing a lot less than I actually was," Nesbitt said. "I should be training. I'll get back into it. I will definitely just, I just wasn't mentally prepared for states. I just wasn't used to the umpires and how official it was."
