Tennis moves on to districts


Raider Tennis took part in the Central Washington B League Tennis Tournament in Omak at the North Cascades Athletic Club last Friday and Saturday. The results from the matches determined both who would advance to the district tournament against the Caribou Trail League schools and for whom the season would be over.

Lake Roosevelt’s doubles team of Jordan Charles and John Drapela will advance to districts as a number-four seed.

Head Coach Steve Archer said he was proud of how Charles and Drapela played, especially in Saturday’s final match.

“The match against Entiat was an up-and-down affair, with the first two sets being won decisively, one set for each team,” Archer said. “In the third and deciding set, Jordan’s leg cramped up and he needed a 10-minute injury time out.”

After a time out for Charles’ leg cramp, it looked good for the LR doubles team who were up 4-0, until they “lost the momentum,” Archer said. They finally lost with the close score of 7-5.

“I wish the tennis enthusiasts of our town could have seen them play,” Archer said. “I was extremely proud of them; they carried themselves with class, even in defeat.”

LR’s doubles team of Malcom Carson and Corban Wilder made it to the quarterfinals before losing to their teammates Charles and Drapela in a close match that was decided in a tiebreaker.

Isaiah Baty made it to the third round before losing a close match. Tanya Ang and Riley Pitner also played three rounds before losing to Hannah Smith and Sarah Dixon of Okanogan.

“They all played their hearts out,” Archer said.

Raider Tennis will travel back to the North Cascades Athletic Club on Friday for the first round of the District Tournament starting at 2 p.m.
