Tennis has busy week
LR’s tennis team rebounded from a total loss early last week with a sweep and a half at the start of May.
At Okanogan April 29, the Raiders were swept, both boys and girls, by the Bulldogs. Holly Jo Carriere came back in the second set of her match against Luisa Cardenas to make it close, 6-0, 7-5. Brandin Smith’s loss to Blake Chesledon 6-2, 6-4, was as close to a win as the boys came.
But the Raiders rebounded with a sweep of Wilson Creek Devils May 1 in Coulee Dam. All matches contested were Raider victories. Head Coach Steve Archer was looking for a momentum swing to carry over into the next day’s match against the league-leading Liberty Bell Mt. Lions.
But at Liberty Bell the next day, the Mountain Lions boys were too strong, taking all matches.
But Liberty Bell had only two girls present. That meant LR won most of the matches by default.
One doubles match was contested, which counted toward the varsity match. The duo of Holly Jo Carriere and Areielle White came home with an impressive come-from-behind win. After losing the first set 3-6, Carriere and White won the second to force a tiebreaker. In the third and deciding set, Carriere and White held off the Mt. Lion duo to win the match.
LR is winding down the regular season and begins to prep for districts. Last night, the Raiders travelled to Wilbur-Creston for a non-league matchup. Tomorrow LR heads to Tonasket for the season finale against the Tigers. Matches at Tonasket High School starts at 4 p.m. For the final match of the season, the Raiders will host Entiat May 13, at 4 p.m.
