Tuning up for more competitive meets coming up in the next week, the Wood River High School tennis team took care of the Jerome Tigers 10-2 and 11-1 Tuesday in a pair of Great Basin Conference West dual meets played in Hailey.

Wood River won 11 of the 12 singles matches in the pro-set format, and also swept boys' and girls' doubles. One of the dual meets against Jerome was a make-up from earlier in the spring—making Tuesday's contests a doubleheader.

Hailey singles players #1 Carlos Neme, #1 Anna Chrysikopoulos and #3 Allison Rust were two-time winners. Also winning twice over Jerome were doubles teams Scott and Morgan Pike, Brendan Freund and William Eagan, Tessa Barrow and Kami Doan, and Ellen Davis and Jessica Hamilton.

Wood River travels to the prestigious Capital Invitational today, Friday, in Boise and visits The Community School next Tuesday. Results from the Jerome matches:
