CCHS falls to Sisters in boys tennis match - Central Oregonian
March 27, 2012Crook County High School
Playing in cold, often windy conditions, the Crook County Cowboys fell 7-1 to the Sisters Outlaws in Thursday’s, non-league tennis action.
“We had to forfeit three matches, which makes it tough to get a win,” said Crook County coach Trevor Brown. “But we had several close matches. I felt like everybody was improving and was playing well. I was happy with how everyone was doing — we just didn’t get a win.”
The Cowboys’ lone victory came in the No. 1 doubles match, where Jared Anderson and Brady Slater dominated Evan Rickards and Trevor Standon, winning 6-0, 6-1.
“They played really well and I was happy with how they did,” Brown said.
The Cowboys No. 2 doubles team also played well, falling in the closest match of the night.
Crook County’s Lucas Rotta and Geoff Gerdes fell behind early, dropping the first four games of set one. The pair rallied to lose the set 6-4. The second set was even closer. The pair forced a tiebreaker, before finally losing the set 7-6 (7-2) to Tyrel Gilmore and Jake Miller.
“They had a pretty good game plan that was working well,” Brown said. “They just got behind early and couldn’t quite come back.”
The shorthanded Cowboys were forced to forfeit the remaining two doubles matches, giving the Outlaws an insurmountable lead.
Sisters went on to win all three contested singles matches.
The Outlaw’s Paul Fullhart defeated Oliver Peterson 6-1, 6-1 to win the No. 1 singles match. Then Luke Gnos slipped past Brick Woodward 6-3, 6-3 in the No. 2 singles match, before Devin Calvin won the final match of the day 6-0, 6-2 over the Cowboys Ory Folts.
“Woodward played really well,” Brown said. “I was happy with how we played and I think we will keep on improving.”
The Cowboys do not play again until Tuesday, April 3, when they host Bend Senior High. The Cowboys will be home again on Thursday, April 5, when they take on the Mountain View Cougars. Both matches are scheduled for 4 p.m.
The team continues the busy week with a 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon contest against Vale.
Crook County winds up the week Saturday at the Madras Invitational Tournament.
Meanwhile, the Cowgirls were also scheduled to face Sisters last Thursday. However, the match, which was scheduled to be played at Black Butte Ranch, was postponed due to snow. As of press time, the match had not yet been rescheduled.
The Cowgirls are scheduled to go on the road to take on the Bend Lava Bears on Tuesday, April 3. They then go on the road again Thursday to take on Mountain View, before hosting Vale on Friday, April 6. Match times are the same as for the Crook County boys team.
