Raider tennis hitting stride


The Raider girls won their two team tennis matches last week, while the boys lost both.

The boys won their doubles matches against the Davenport Gorillas April 18 but lost the singles, while the LR girls won the singles matches but lost the doubles.

At Oroville on Thursday, the Raider girls scored another team win while the boys came close to winning by just one match.

The Raiders won four of their five matches against the Hornets.

“Tanya Ang’s match was a hot-and-cold affair,” Raider Head Coach Steve Archer said. “Each girl won a set at a lopsided 6-0 score, but Tanya was not able to push her way for a win in the deciding third set, winning only two games off her opponent, Mikayla Scott.”

“The closest match for the boys was Edmond Fenton at third singles,” Archer said.

After winning the first set 6-2, Fenton dropped the second 3-6 and was behind 0-5 in the third before “something clicked and he won five games in a row, so they were knotted up at 5-5,” Archer said.

He narrowly lost the next two, Archer said, and the win went to Oroville 3-2.

This week the Raiders have three matches. Last night they traveled to Liberty Bell for a rematch with the Mountain Lions. Tomorrow the Raiders host the Pateros Billygoats/Nannies at the high school courts, starting at 4 p.m. On Friday, White Swan comes to Lake Roosevelt for a 3:30 p.m. match.
