Last updated 3/28/2023 at Noon

The boys tennis team faced tough competition against 4A and 5A teams this past week, and despite the losses are improving with each match and looking forward to league play.

Sisters was short four of their players in their first match of the week held on Monday, March 20 at Crook County. No. 2 singles Dominic Pulver was the lone winner with a 6-3, 6-4 win over William Schultz. Coach David Rowell noted that Pulver was very comfortable on the court, even against his stronger and bigger opponent, and it was great for him to get the first match win for the team.

Jude Parzybok, who played No. 1 singles, played hard, and games were close with many of them going to deuce. However, he lost to Alex Garcia-Llordes 2-6, 1-6. Zenas Ortega fell to Cameron Carr 2-6, 0-6, at No. 3 singles.

Timber and Tobann Bionda took on Noah Hatina and Gregory Hubble at No. 1 doubles and fell 1-6, 2-6.

Coach David Rowell told The Nugget that Crook County was a great host and is excited to play them again at home later in the season. He added that he thinks the Outlaws have what it takes to win a couple more matches against them.

A day later the Outlaws faced the Ridgeview Ravens at home in Sisters. Once again Pulver (No. 2 singles) was the lone winner. He came out on top 6-1, 4-6, 10-6, in a long, grueling match against Chance Bottoriff.

Parzybok (No. 1 singles) fell to Van Schaalma 0-6, 2-6, and Rowell told The Nugget that it was an unfortunate loss and the score doesn’t represent how close each game was. Ortega (No. 3 singles) dropped his match 0-6, 1-6, to Ivan Lei, and duo Timber and Tobann Bionda (No. 1 doubles) fell 0-6, 1-6 to John Brundage and Mason Zampko.

Rowell said, “It was fun playing at home again, and I was happy to see Dominic get another win. Ridgeview brought a lot of boys so everyone was able to play two to three matches.”

The Outlaws wrapped up their week on Thursday at home against Redmond. The day was marked by crazy weather conditions, including strong winds and a bit of snow, but the players were having fun and so coaches decided to let them play. Sisters players lost their matches, but again worked hard against the tough competition.

“The boys played hard and had fun competing,” said Rowell. “Overall, I’m looking forward to play more of our league matches and to get some more wins. I’m excited that spring break is over and I will have all nine boys again.”

Sisters was scheduled to play at home against The Dalles on Monday, April 3. They will host the Cascade Cougars on Wednesday, April 5, and the following day travel to Madras.
