Shephard does not advance
Phoenix Shephard took on Greg Sklar of Omak in a loser-out match last Saturday at Omak High School tennis courts.
Shephard and Sklar competed against each other earlier in the season in a very close match that ended with a Sklar win.
Saturday, Shephard won the first game to take the early lead, but lost the match, his last as a Raider, 6-2, 6-0.
â€śPhoenix started out on top winning the first game,â€ť commented Head Coach Steve Archer. â€śAnd even though the rest of the games were close, going to deuce many times, he was only able to rack up one more game.â€ť
Raider tennis ends another season that was filled with hard-fought matches that saw a great deal of individual gain from many of the athletes.
