Lake Roosevelt's tennis team travelled to Pateros and Entiat last week to open the 2014 season.
At Pateros on March 18, the boys' squad won the match 3-2 by sweeping all the singles matches. Girls had a tough start, losing 0-5.
"Both Harmony Witten and Arielle White were ahead at 4-1 half way through their matches but were unable to maintain their lead to the end," Head Coach Steve Archer noted.
Thursday at Entiat, both the boys' and girls' squads lost by the scores of 2-3 and 1-4.
Holly Jo Carriere won her first set against Alexis Swearington of Entiat and was up 5-2 in the second before losing hold of the lead. Swearington prevailed in the third set's 10-point tie breaker, 10-4.
Arielle White won in a commanding performance over Hayley Davis. Archer and the Entiat coach negotiated a doubles match between Daniel Campobosso and Brandin Smith with Noe and Albert Quezada. The match went to the tiebreaker round.
"They both won their singles matches and almost pulled off an upset against the strong Entiat doubles team," Archer said.
It came down to a super tiebreaker, which they lost at 10-7.
When the Raiders take the court after spring break, Archer said, both the boys' and girls' squads will be at full strength at seven players apiece.
The Raiders travelled south to White Swan last night and will finally play at home tomorrow against Oroville. LR closes out the week at Tonasket on Friday. All matches will start at 4 p.m.
