The boys tennis squad lost their matches against Summit and Crook County last week, but did record some individual wins.
Dominic Pulver was the lone Outlaw winner at Summit on Monday, April 10. Pulver was composed throughout his match and defeated Jackson Rylan in two straight sets, 6-2, 6-4.
Coach David Rowell said, “Dom took advantage of Jackson’s weak second serve and positioning.”
Matthew Riehle (No. 3 singles) injured his shoulder and had to retire his match against Jude Jarrett. Riehle is recovering well and is expected to play again soon.
“Summit has a great tennis program and has 56 boys out this year,” said Rowell. “It was a fun match and their coach and I are great friends.”
Three days later the Outlaws played at home against the Crook County Cowboys. Jude Parzybok was the lone winner for the Outlaws in this contest, and beat Cameron Carr 6-3, 6-4. Parzybok hit a lot of deep balls and forced Carr to play more defensively. Rowell told The Nugget that Parzybok looked the best he’s been all season.
Pulver matched up against Alex Garcia-Llourdes, the Cowboys’ No. 1 singles player. He played a great match, but lost the contest 3-6, 1-6.
Chris Roach, who usually plays doubles, played a great match in his first varsity singles (No. 3) match of the season. Rowell stated Roach held his own against Billy Schultz, who has a strong forehand, but in the end lost the match 3-6, 4-6.
“Chris’s forehand stroke is very smooth and he’s come a long way. He will continue to grow as he plays in more matches,” said Rowell.
“It was fun to play Crook County again. It allowed us to see measurable growth in the team.”
The Outlaws were scheduled to play at North Marion on Tuesday, April 18, their only match for the week.
