Reese Bergstrom (left) and Coby Comstock will compete Thursday in the IHSA Class 1A state tennis tournament. It is the second consecutive year the doubles team has competed at state. They are a combined 39-9 in the past two seasons. 

The Mattoon doubles pair of Reese Bergstrom and Coby Comstock advanced to the second day of the Class 1A state tennis tournament in Hoffman Estates by going 2-1 on Thursday.

Bergstrom and Comstock began the day with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Nazareth Academy's Johnny Hamilton and Chris Wilson. They lost 6-4, 6-3 to Prairie Ridge's Jared Arkell and Max Kueller in their second match. They won the third match of the day 6-0, 6-1 over Fairfield's Derek Estes and Jacob Britt.

The loss dropped Bergstrom and Comstock into the consolation bracket of the double-elimination tournament. The defeat of the Fairfield pair sent them to the third round of the consolation bracket, where they will take on Timothy Christian's Jack Rhiner and James Shervheim on Friday.

The duo went 3-2 in state last year, advancing a day and earning honorable mention all-state as top-20 finishers.

“Our goal is to hopefully go 4-2 or 5-2,” Bergstrom told the JG-TC in April. “Go as far as we can.”
