Tennis match with Summit stopped because of rain

Summit leading when match is cancelled, but no team scores recorded


When it rains, sometimes it pours.

On Thursday, the host Cowgirls’ tennis match with the Summit Storm was never completed as driving rain made the courts unplayable.by: LON AUSTIN/CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Elsa Harris plays the ball against Summit's Lindsey Brodeck on Thursday. Harris won the first set of the match 6-2. The second set was tied 3-3 when the match was called because rain made conditions unplayable.

Two of the four matches set to be contested were played prior to the rain hitting. However, the headline match, which featured two of the top tennis players in Oregon, was never finished.

The match between undefeated Elsa Harris and once-beaten Lindsey Brodeck was stopped after Harris won the first set 6-2. However, Brodeck had regrouped and the second set was tied 3-3. The No. 2 singles match was even tighter with Greta Harris winning the first set 7-6 (7-1) in a tiebreaker over Brenna Roy. The two players were unable to finish even one game in the second set.

The Cowgirls, who have dropped matches all season because of forfeits, are still expected to be a factor at the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A Special District 5 tournament, which started Monday in Ontario.

Elsa Harris is expected to win the singles championship while both Greta Harris and the doubles team of Laura Fraser and Gwyneth Ptomey are expected to contend for state berths.

The tournament continues through today with the top four singles players and top four doubles teams qualifying for the state championships, which are scheduled for Thursday through Saturday, May 22-24, in Corvallis.
