ROUNDUP: Kulma advances to second day of state tennis tournament

DeKalb’s Matt Kulma made it through the first day of the IHSA state boys tennis tournament, winning two of his three matches and advancing to the third round of the consolation bracket today.

The DeKalb senior will face Lyons’ Cuyler Burke at Rolling Meadows today.

Kulma won his first-round match against Althoff Catholic’s Joey Bartholemew, 6-3, 7-6 (3) before losing to Loyola Academy’s Anthony Arocho, 6-2, 6-1, in the second round. Arocho was seeded as one of the tournament’s top 32 players.

Kulma rallied back to defeat Troy Triad’s Jake Bennett, 5-7, 6-2, 6-2.

This is the second time in four years that Kulma has advanced to the second day at state.

Last year, Kulma was eliminated with a loss in his first Friday match.

DeKalb’s doubles team of Charles White and Nick Seldal lost both of its matches at the state tournament. White and Seldal fell, 6-1, 6-1, in the first round and then lost a tough 6-2, 7-5 match in the consolation first round.
