Nice day for Great Basin tennis

Wood Riverís Bryan Donoso tracks down a forehand winner during his three-set battle with Jeromeís Michael Pittman Tuesday at the high school tennis courts, Hailey.

The Wood River tennis team swept all six doubles matches in a 10-2 victory over league rival Jerome on Tuesday on the tennis courts in Hailey.

"It was a good day for us," coach Vicki Johnston said, "and a beautiful one too."

Despite the lopsided score, the Tigers were no pushovers. Wood River claimed 144 games and lost 75. Three of the 12 matches went all three sets.

In #1 girls' singles, Tanya Greenwood outlasted Samantha Sobotka, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4.

"Tanya pulled out a good three-set win," Johnston said. "It was a good win for her."

Jerome's Breanna Gilbert defeated Sloan Storey 6-4, 6-4 to win #2 girls' singles. The Wolverines won the #3 girls' singles match by default.

In boys' singles, Wood River captured the #1 and #3 draws with Morgan Pike (6-1, 6-1) and Davis Matthews (6-1, 6-0) winning in straight sets. At #2, Wolverine Bryan Donoso and Jerome's Michael Pittman started early and finished late in a three-set gutbuster in which the Tiger pulled out a 5-7, 6-0, 7-5 victory.

"They're both really scrappy players," Johnston said about Donoso and Pittman.

The Wolverines totally dominated doubles matches.

Prevailing in boys were #1 Brendan Freund and R.J. Forgeon (7-5, 6-3), and #2 Thomas Goettleman and Kuba Pros (6-0, 1-6, 6-0).

#1 Tory Lakey and Emilie Jeneson (6-1, 6-3), and #2 Hannah Baybutt and Morgan Jones (6-2, 6-1) swept the girls' doubles duels.

Mixed doubles winners were #1 Kelsey Brennan and Alex Henning (6-2, 6-4), and #2 Allie Freund and William Eagan (6-1, 6-1).

Wood River is participating in the Capital Invitational in the greater Boise area today and Saturday.

On Tuesday, April 28, the Wolverines will be in Sun Valley for sets against The Community School and Minico.
