Harry Collomb made history on Saturday as the freshman won the first-ever individual boys tennis state championship in Wellesley history by defeating Boston Latin’s Derek Shen 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury.

Collomb, who entered the South sectionals as the No. 4 seed, took down Marthas Vineyard’s Chris Ferry before a 7-6, 2-6, 6-3 victory over Trevor Shwarzmann, the top overall seed in the South out of Dartmouth, in the South semifinals. Collomb won the South sectional with a victory in consecutive sets (6-4, 6-4) against Hanover’s Henry Ginter, the No. 2 seed in the sectional.

In the state semifinals against Central/West champ Stefan Johnson of Northampton, Collomb won in consecutive sets (7-5, 6-4) to advance to Saturday’s final.

After overcoming a 3-0 deficit in the first set and rallying with six victories in the next seven games to take the first set 7-5, Collomb dropped the second set 2-6, meaning that match would come down to a third and final set.

A critical victory in the fifth game of the third set allow Collomb to go ahead 4-1 and proved to be the difference in the match. The freshman went on to win the set 6-2 and earned Wellesley its first-ever individual boys tennis title in school history.
