Hailey tennis team makes strides

Sweeps Canyon Ridge 12-0

Wood River High School tennis players made quick work of the Canyon Ridge Riverhawks in a Great Basin Conference dual meet Tuesday, April 2, in Twin Falls.

The Wolverines swept Canyon Ridge 12-0, winning every set and outscoring the ’Hawks in games 144-27. It was a dominant early-season performance for a Hailey program that normally ranks among the top 4A tennis schools in Idaho.

First-year coach Carlos Meza said, “The Wolverines demonstrated consistent play and competitiveness which will benefit them in the upcoming league and tournaments in Idaho Falls and Boise.”

No. 1 singles players Stephen Pfeiffer and Lily Richards had strong service games in their straight-set wins.

Megan Murphy and Josie Potts played very steady games and gained valuable match experience and confidence in their No. 2 and No. 3 singles’ wins, said Meza. No. 2 Chase Hutchinson and No. 3 Drew Morse used strong topspin shots to advantage in their quick singles victories.

Margaret Reutter and Danny Graves squeezed out a first set win before finding their “A” game in the second set, winning 6-4, 6-1 at No. 1 mixed doubles. Coach Meza said Miles Remington and Audrey Brassil continued to get stronger as a mixed team, winning 6-1, 6-1.

At No. 1 boys’ doubles, Cole Caminiti and Erik Wilander sailed through their match 6-0, 6-0 and No. 2 Jose Juarez and Max Mauldin also took care of business, 6-0, 6-3.

The Taylor sisters, Samantha and Alex, played a strong volley game to win 6-2, 6-0 in No. 1 girls’ doubles. Alex Feldman teamed with Tate Morell for a convincing 6-0, 6-0 win in No. 2 girls’ doubles.

Wood River hosts Burley and the Community School on Tuesday, April 9, starting at 2 p.m. on the Hailey courts.
