Gage Brymer from University High School in Irvine captured his third straight Ojai Boys’ CIF Invitational title on Saturday, becoming the first player in 77 years to win three in a row.

“It’s such a special tournament for me,” Brymer said. “I’ve been looking forward to this day for a year now. I’m glad I was able to pull it off.

Brymer got off to a mediocre start against Taylor Fritz of Torrey Pines High School as it was 3-all in the first set before the future UCLA Bruin Brymer got red hot and reeled off nine straight games for the 6-3, 6-0 win.

Fritz’s mother is Kathy May Fritz, a former Wimbledon quarterfinalist who first won The Ojai 14s in 1970, won the 16s in 1972 and then won multiple women’s Open singles and doubles titles. His father Guy was a former ATP Touring pro and was on hand for the match.

Three Weil Academy students won Ojai titles on Saturday: Girls’ 14, Hannah Lairmore; Girls’ 16s, Jessica Livianu and Boys’ 16s Aiden Jiang .
