Boys tennis competes at district tournament

The boys tennis squad took six players to the first round of districts which was held Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11, at the Cascade Racquet Club in Richland, Washington.

Dominic Pulver (No.1 singles) and Jack Murray (No. 3 singles) had great performances, beat both their opponents, and will advance to the second round of district play which will be held at Crook County High School Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18.

“These two have worked hard all year to improve their skills, and strategically this tournament they both played smart games that paid off with wins,” said Coach Vince Grace. “These guys are best friends that support each other every day, and as a team we are all very excited to see them continue on.”

Jude Parzybok (No.2 singles), Westin Dean (No. 4 singles), and the doubles team of Finn Stancliff and Joseph Derksen also competed at the event.

“At the end of the day I was really impressed by how hard the team fought,” said Coach Grace. “We won all of our matches, and it was the most successful day of the season.

“My favorite win of the day was from Westin Dean, who played in his first singles games of the season,” added Grace. “He has acquired a taste for the love of the game; his positive attitude is contagious, and he has come a long ways from the start of the season.”
