Canby boys tennis struggles at Three Rivers League districts
Canby's boys' tennis woes continued at the district meet. The Cougars finished in last place with just one point for the whole team.
Canby junior Cameron Hadd lost his opening match up with West Linn's Andrew Walker 2-0 (6-1, 6-0), and was bested by Keaton Redding of Tualatin in the opening round of the consolation bracket.
Fellow junior Owen Bradfute shared a similar fate. In the opening round, Bradfute fell to Lake Oswego junior Mitchell Weiss 2-0 (6-0, 6-4). In the consolation bracket first round, he lost to Tualatin sophomore Andrew Monkarsh 8-5.
Canby freshman Drew Pierson may have also lost in the first round, but he put up quite the battle. Against Lakeridge junior Noah Beem, Pierson forced the match to go three sets, ultimately losing 2-1 (6-4, 2-6, 6-1). In the next match against West Linn freshman Aiydan Prichard it was much less competitive as Pierson was bested 8-1.
The most successful Canby singles player was senior Jared Maesk. After losing a very close three set battle with sophomore Brandon Mattheson of Tigard 2-1 (5-7, 7-5, 6-1), Maesk turned it around and bested Tualatin senior Santiago de la Torre 8-6. The Canby senior was unable to build upon that momentum, losing to Lakeridge senior Leandro Andrade 8-6.
For the Canby doubles teams, the results were little better.
Canby freshman Ryan Scarborough and sophomore Zane Barbee were shut out in the opening round against Lake Oswego seniors Davis Dowdle and Aidan Gatter 2-0 (6-0, 6-0). In the consolation bracket Tigard seniors Logan Jett and Greg Wettlaufer bested the Cougars in a similarly dominant fashion.
Canby juniors Angel Orzcozomora and Jordan Spencer were dominated by Conor Ciula and Nathan Williams of Tigard 2-0 (6-0, 6-1), and then beaten by Tualatin's Bo Jackson and Sean Khanna in the consolation round.
Sophomore Emerson Vordermark and freshman Jake Reirson were beaten by Tualatin's Drew Malinowski and Kaden Eaton 2-0 (6-2, 6-2), and then stopped again by Lakeridge's Sammy Polliack and Karthik Sreedhar.
The most successful doubles team was that of seniors Thijs Peperkamp and JP Phan. Despite losing to Lake Oswego freshmen Kyle Freeman and Kadin Freeman 2-1 (4-6, 6-0, 6-0), they bounced back strong in the conslation bracket. Phan and Peperkamp beat Tualatin seniors Jonah Calacay and Luke Winkler to move on, but were beaten by Lake Oswego sophomores Chris Detmer and Nick Di Re.
