Logan Haga admitted he was a bit sore after three days of tennis at the Class 3A individual singles state tournament in Altamonte Springs. But the Pasco High sophomore managed to forget about the pain once the overall state championship medal was put around his neck.Haga, who entered the tournament unranked, won four matches in the individual draw to get to the overall title game. Along the way, he had a grueling three-set match against top-seeded Christopher Mendivil of Palm Beach Dwyer on the first day. Haga survived 6-1, 3-6, 10-8.That was followed on the second day by a 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 10-4 win over Diego Belfort of Belen Jesuit in the semifinals. The day ended with a 6-3, 6-1 win over No. 2 seed Michael Moll of Naples for the individual title.On Friday morning, Haga sewed up the overall championship with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Benjamin Zipay of Venice.“Once I got to the second-to-last match (Thursday) I could barely walk," Haga said. “The first match went three hours and I only had a 45 minute rest in between. I was pretty tired. I was pretty sore (in the overall final) but once we got playing I loosened up."This was Haga’s first appearance at the state tournament. As a freshman, he lost in the district final and did not qualify. Since then, he said he has become a different player. He played in junior tournaments throughout the summer and worked on his game.He trained with his coach, Brian Lowry, twice a week.Once the high school season started, he was ready to not only get to the state tournament, but to make an impact.“I was nowhere near as good last year as I am this year," Haga said. “I just got bigger. I’m a little more dense now, which gives me more power on my shots. I have a much better forehand."Haga was unranked in the field of 16 players because he did not have enough state ranking points. Clearly, taking him lightly was a mistake. Pasco boys tennis coach Mickey Wilks said he wasn’t surprised to see his top player earn the championship medal.“Well, yes and no," Wilks said. “He wasn’t ranked but he’s really just as good as the players he played against. He’s really talented, and to win it as a sophomore says something."Haga has been around tennis as long as he can remember, but not at a country club. His parents used to take him to public courts in his neighborhood while they played.“As soon as I could pick up a racket I was playing," Haga said.He still mostly plays on public courts when he practices. After winning the state championship, Haga said he will take a whole two days off before getting back on the court. He has a big junior tournament in two weeks.Now that he is a state champion, Haga will likely get a bit more attention in the tournaments he plays. And for the next two years, anyway, he will be the high school player to beat.He said he would like to play tennis in college and has started looking into it. But he is still a long way from picking a school.For now, one of his only concerns is where to put is hard-earned state championship medal.“We’ll probably put a hook up in my room to hang it up," he said.
