Viking tennis splits with Miners

For the third year in a row, the Viking boys’ tennis program at South Tahoe High School couldn’t dig up a win against the Bishop Manogue Miners, losing 13-9 1/2 on Thursday at home.

Boys’ coach Pat Fagen said he was juggling the lines trying to find the right combination of doubles players and that it may have been the team’s detriment.

“They’re always pretty strong,” Fagen said of the Miners. “It’s a learning process for all of us, so hopefully we’ll have it together by the end of the year so we can win some close ones.”

The Viking girls’ tennis team, however, won their fourth 4A Northern Region Sierra League match Thursday against Bishop Manogue 15-7 1/2.

That puts the Viking right where they want to be heading into their last three league matches: 4-1 in league and 5-1 overall.

They finished 5-3 in zone last year, but they have Reno, Carson and North Valleys still to go.

“If we continue to keep playing like we are, we should do well,” said Sabrina Zalles, girls’ varsity coach. “I’m really proud of the girls, they’ve improve so much from the first day.”
