Tennis gets ready for districts
In the past week the Raider Tennis team finished its regular season and competed in the first post-season tourney.
At the Lake Roosevelt High School tennis courts May 13, the regular season came to an end with a match against the Entiat Tigers.
Entiat swept the Raider boys and narrowly defeated the Raider girls.
Daniel Campobasso forced a tiebreaker set in his match against Alberto Quezada. Brandin Smith’s match against Orfil Olmos also went into a tiebreaker. Smith, Head Coach Steve Archer said, “lost the first set in a close tie-breaker, and the second set was knotted up at 5-5, but he dropped two games in a row for the loss.”
On the girls side, both Raider doubles teams defeated their Tiger opponents. Holly Carriere and Areielle White defeated Lisa Ayala and Taylor Southard 6-2, 6-4. Harmony Witten and Tanya Ang defeated Haylie Davis and Ava Giacomazzi 6-2, 6-3.
In singles action, Mary Clark competed hard in the first set and Riley Stout came back in the second set of her match against Brienna Cardens. Cardens held off Stout to win the match 6-1, 7-5.
The Raiders played in the Central Washington B League Tournament May 17 at Ephrata High School, where the top three singles and doubles teams advanced to District 6 A/B at Cashmere and Cascade High Schools this week.
Daniel Campobasso and the doubles team of Holly Jo Carriere and Areielle White finished the day third and will move on to district play.
Coach Archer said the match of the day belonged to the Witten-Ang doubles team. After winning their first round match, they faced a White Swan duo as underdogs but stunned the crowd, winning the first set by determined play. In the second, White Swan recovered from the shock and won.
The LR duo came from behind in the third to force a tiebreaker set, but lost 8-6.
Last night Campobasso, White, and Carriere competed at Cashmere against the number-two seeds from the Caribou Trail League. If they won they will return to Cashmere on Saturday to compete at 9:30 a.m. for a State A/B Tennis berth.
