AUSTIN -- Franklin High School's Austin Klores has had to deal with a huge bullseye on his back since winning the Class 2A state singles title 4 years ago as a freshman.
Austin was been able to answer the challenge the last 2 years and today at the Pennick Allison Tennis Center in Austin he defeated Hunter Lloyd of Tuscola Jim Ned 6-2, 6-4 to win his 4th title.
"I think it was harder to win the last one because everyone is out to beat you," said Klores after the match.
The 4 time state champion has signed to play his college tennis in College Station at Texas A&M University which just 35 minutes away from his hometown in Franklin.
"I'm ready to start playing at A&M. It's been a goal of mine. I'm glad I got to play for my school and represent them. I really appreciate all the support they've given me during my high school career," said Klores.
Austin becomes just the 7th singles player and 4th boy to win the singles championship every year of his high school career. The last was Colter Williams of Rotan in 2001-2004.
