Valley tennis powers collide

Community School edges out Wood River


Wood River's Thomas Phelan digs deep in the #1 boys' singles match against Cutthroat Tyler Martin.

On a blustery Thursday afternoon in Hailey, two powerhouse teams of Idaho tennis met in Hailey as snow threatened from the west. The Community School Cutthroats tennis team (1-0) opened their season with a 6-4 win over the Wood River Wolverines (4-1-2).

Cutthroat boys went undefeated over Wood River boys with singles #1 Tyler Martin, #2 Scooter Sabel and #3 McClain Porter winning their matches in two sets each. Porter's match was a hard fought 6-4, 7-5 win over Wood River's Connor Fairman.

The Community School's boys' doubles team of Christian Cairncross and Wes Flanigan completed the Cutthroats boys streak with a 6-1, 6-0 win. As Wood River girls fought hard, it was the undefeated Cutthroat boys who gave the Community School the team win.

Wood River kept it close with strong play from their girls with #1 Hadley DeBree, #2 Anna Chrysikopolous, and #1 doubles team Abby Fairman/ Jackie Safran each extending their own unbeaten streaks. Wood River's girls' doubles team were powerful, giving up only 3 games between them as Whitney DeBree and Kira Gardner took their match 6-1, 6-0.
