RALEIGH- 

Nick Stachowiak completed an unbeaten high school boys tennis career with his third state title, but this time the Middle Creek senior had to work – for him – overtime.

The Duke-bound Stachowiak won 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 over Indiana-bound Bennett Crane of Winston-Salem’s R.J. Reynolds in the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A championship Saturday at Millbrook Exchange Park. It was only the second time Stachowiak, who missed his sophomore year with a back injury, needed three sets to win a high school match.
