Tennis defeats Wilbur, loses to Tonasket

 


The Lake Roosevelt Raiders tennis team defeated Wilbur-Creston-Keller on the road, then again at home, before losing at home against Tonasket last week.

On May 2 in Wilbur, the Raider boys won 5-0 and the girls 4-1 against the Wilbur-Creston-Keller Wildcats.

The closest matches ended in tiebreakers. In boys’ singles, Malcolm Carson defeated Jake Mattox 6-1, 4-6, 1-0 (10-5); and in boys’ doubles, Bradley Wilder and Terry Yazzie defeated Wyatt Corrigan and James Manchester 4-6, 6-2, 1-0 (10-2).

At home on May 4, also against the Wildcats, the Raider boys won 3-1, and the girls 3-2.

“This was the hottest day of the season, in the 80s,” Head Coach Steve Archer noted. “So we shortened up the match by playing all eight game pro-sets. It was a great day for tennis, having played Wilbur/Creston twice already this season and with Wilbur/Creston being so close, plus Ian Wilder’s family barbecuing hamburgers for both teams.”

At home against Tonasket on Saturday, the Raider boys lost 4-1 and the girls 5-0.

The lone win came from Carson and Will Friedlander in boys’ doubles as they defeated Joe Schell and Vance Frazier 6-1, 6-3.

LR played Oroville yesterday in a makeup match, results of which will be reported next week.

The district tournament begins at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 12, at three locations: Omak High School, Okanogan High School, and the Cascade Athletic Club. The first two rounds will be single-elimination, with the winners advancing to compete on Saturday. The top four finishers advance to Saturday, May 20, for a chance to compete at the state tournament.

“Our best chances to advance are at boys’ and girls’ doubles with Will Friedlander/Malcolm Carson and Rylee Pitner/Alexia Ryan,” Archer said. “We’re going to give it our best shot as we face off against the best in the whole league.”
