Chris Ujkic has successfully defended his Bob Wall Memorial Tennis Tournament men’s open singles title, 6-3, 6-2, over Steve Paskiewicz in Peconic

Ujkic is a former Mattituck High School tennis star who now lives in NYC. He’s 24 and is ranked No. 1 in the east by the U.S. Tennis Association’s open division. He also recently won a national bodybuilding/fitness championship, which showed on the court today. He got to virtually everything Paskiewicz threw at him.

Paskiewicz is a former Riverhead High School star who now lives in East Moriches. He’s 40 and is also a past Bob Wall winner.

The women’s singles final and men’s 50+ doubles final were completed yesterday before the rains came.

That match was postponed yesterday due to rain, and they could not play today because of previous commitments.

A livery van driver fell asleep at the wheel Sunday morning and crashed into two light poles along Route 25 in Mattituck, Southold Town Police said.

The driver, Katherine Lobbe, 53, of Kings Park was transported to Eastern Long Island Hospital by the Mattituck Fire Department, where she is being treated for minor injuries, according to police.

The crash, which occurred just after 5 a.m. at the New Suffolk Ave. intersection, caused a brief power outage int the area after one of the utility poles snapped in half, police said.

A passenger in the van, Georgia Panagopoulas, 51, of East Marion was not injured in the accident. No charges were filed in the incident, police said.

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story said the accident occurred Monday due to an error in a police press release.
