Boys’ tennis falls in team playoffs, gears for singles, doubles tournaments
The South Tahoe boys played their final team tennis match Monday and fell to the Truckee Wolverines 15-3 in the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association 3A Northern Region Team Tennis Championships at Tahoe Donner Tennis Club in Truckee.
The Vikings (8-3) have suffered three losses this season, all to the Wolverines (11-0), although the first two matches were a lot closer, twice losing 11-7.
The three points the Vikings earned all came from singles with Juan Vazquez, Pete Sullivan and Zephyr Jones each winning one match.
Incline, which forfeited its team match as a top four seed, and South Tahoe will hope for stronger results Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12-13, in the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association 3A Northern Region Girls’ and Boys’ Individual Tennis Championships at Tahoe Donner Tennis Club in Truckee.
Incline owns three of the top six seeds and South Tahoe has one in the singles tournament. The Vikings have three of the top six doubles teams and the Highlanders will have one team participating.
Dalton Fry is No. 3, Tyler Knight is No. 4 and Paul Larson is the No. 6 seed out of eight in the 16-player bracket for Incline.
South Tahoe’s top singles player Juan Vazquez is the No. 5 seed.
The Vikings doubles team of Quinn Proctor and Pete Sullivan are No. 2, Jeremiah Dahl and Clyde Rypins are No. 4 and Adin Burns and Matt Sullivan are the sixth seed.
Incline’s team of Jake Harrell and James Loudon is the seventh seed.
