Boys fall to La Salle Prep
The Madras High School girls tennis team swept the Santiam Christian Eagles in a league match Friday at Madras High School.
The boys, however, didn't have such luck against La Salle Prep last Tuesday, losing 5-3.
For the girls, Megan Forristall moved up to No. 1 singles, and made the most of her time there. After dropping a tiebreaker in the first set, she came back and won the second set 6-4, then cruised to a 6-2 win in the third to claim the match.
"She really stepped up," Madras coach Dave Jordan said. "I was really pleased with how she played, since she usually plays No. 2 singles for us."
Itzel Romero won at No. 2 singles, 6-1, 6-2, and Jessica Gonzalez earned a 7-5, 6-2 win at No. 3 singles.
Lorena Alonso rounded out the singles wins for the Buffs at No. 4, 6-0, 6-1.
In doubles play, Kaitlyn Carter and Mercedes Lawrence teamed up for a 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 1 doubles. Sophie Gemelas and Jenni Young won at the No. 2 flight with a dominant 6-0, 6-0 victory. At No. 3 doubles, Maria Carranza celebrated her 18th birthday in style with teammate Clair Manion to win 6-1, 6-0.
Amanda Olivera and Maira Olivera cleaned up the No. 4 flight of doubles without an issue, 6-0, 6-0.
The girls played Stayton on Tuesday at home, but the result was not available by the Pioneer's press deadline.
For the boys against the Falcons, the Buffs won just two games in singles play. At No. 1, Dylan Miller picked a game off Xander Hey, and Simon Sangha won a game against Nick Lee at No. 4 singles.
In doubles, Madras earned wins in all flights except for No. 1.
Eliceo Garcia and Jordan Gemelas picked up the victory, 6-1, 6-2 at No. 2 doubles. Jesus Vazquez and Kody Turner had to go three sets to take the No. 3 match, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), and Oved Felix and Jered Pichette won the No. 4 flight in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.
