Solid Play Nets League Victories For Tennis

Tennis players have been lucky enough to dodge many of the rainstorms this spring, getting in several matches.

For the Cougar tennis team, they have crafted a 9-0 win over Livingston, 6-3 against Ripon and 5-4 against Hughson in Trans-Valley League play. They lost a 3-6 decision to Riverbank. This week, the Cougars are scheduled to play at Livingston on March 31. Then, they will take on Millennium in back-to-back matches the following week as well as face off again against Riverbank, this time on the home court, looking to avenge that earlier loss.

In the shutout win over Livingston, all Cougars – singles and doubles – were straight set winners.

That included Josh Schut at boys number one singles, Luca Cerasi at number two; Isabella Nalbandian at girls number one singles and Rylie Lattig at number two. Sawyer Mello and Jack Anderson teamed for a win in boys number one doubles, while Landon Underwood and Co Northcutt took a forfeit win off the course.

Makayla Wentzell and Faye Hernandez were winners at girls number one doubles, Kaili Castellanos and Brittany Dugo were winners in girls number two doubles. Taking the mixed doubles victory were Nathan Rose and Paloma Lara.

Livingston was in town on March 16, Hughson on March 22 and Ripon on March 24 while the Cougars were on the road March 17 for the match at Riverbank.
