As many people know, the Westside High School Ping Pong Open tournament is entering the actual bracket stage this week. The tournament this year has more contenders this year than I have ever witnessed in a ping pong tournament before, it’s going to be intense.
I am well known for my ping pong skills, so I am inherently good at making ping pong predictions. In this article I will be analyzing some of the more interesting first round matches.
Jacob Lehr vs. Oliver Rockman: This is an interesting matchup because Jacob is obviously superior to Oliver however, they are good friends, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Oliver kept this close and maybe even get a win. It would be the win of the century. In reality, Jacob wins.
Jacob wins 21-9
Pat Hawk vs. Dylan Harlow: Pat has been talking trash to Dylan for some time now so hopefully he will be able to defeat her. Neither is a real threat to win the tourney though, sorry guys…
Pat wins 21-18
Calvin Amin vs. Marc Cubrich: Calvin Amin is bound to win this one with his amazing skills. He has a good command of his shots, which mix perfectly with his expert slam shots. I really hope he wins the whole tournament
Calvin wins 21-10
Max Lawlor vs. Hope Lawlor: Siblings crash in this interesting battle of wills. Max has a wide variety of shots that he can use but Hope has loads of determination. This one is almost too close to call.
Max wins 24-22
I’m tired of writing, so I deem the rest of the first round matches insignificant.
