Tennis prepares for league championships


Raider Tennis played three matches last week, and one already this week, ahead of the Central Washington North 2B Tennis Tournament at the North Cascade Athletic Club in Omak this Friday and Saturday.

The Raiders traveled to Entiat May 3, where, as Head Coach Steve Archer explained, they had a different match setup. “We had to play most of the matches in pro-set format, because Entiat only has three courts and no lights,” Archer said.

The Raider boys defeated the Tigers but the girls came away with only one win.

“Tanya Ang and Rylee Pitner got a good win, which sets them up for a good seeding at the league tournament,” Archer noted.

On Thursday, the Raiders took on the Oroville Hornets at home, where the boys’ win streak ended, even as they improved against the Hornets, taking two of five from Oroville over the previous match’s one. But the Lake Roosevelt girls lost the match to the Hornets, whereas earlier at Oroville the they had won in convincing fashion.

LR did face Wilbur-Creston at home on Friday, but no information on the match was available before deadline.

Last night the Raiders closed out the regular season at Okanogan. On Friday the Raiders will play the first round of the league tournament at the North Cascades Athletic Club, starting at 2 p.m. and continuing Saturday at 10 a.m.
