Minico slips past WRHS tennis 7-5

Success among girls lifts Spartans

The Minico Spartans are off to a strong start in the Great Basin Conference prep tennis season. They proved it Thursday with a 7-5 home league win over the reigning league champion Wood River Wolverines.

Minico swept girls’ singles and mixed doubles and won the girls’ team title 5-1. The Wood River boys dominated doubles with a pair of straight sets wins and earned a 4-2 victory in the boys’ standings at Rupert.

The match of the day for Wood River occurred in No. 1 girls’ doubles. Alex and Samantha Taylor dropped the first set 7-5 to the very strong Minico pair of Monica Farfan and KeAndra Harris, then the Taylor sisters came back to sweep the next two sets 6-1, 6-0.

Stephen Pfeiffer and Taylor Cooper played clean tennis to capture boys’ singles wins at No. 1 and No. 3, and the teams of Josh Morell-Cole Caminiti and Erik Wilander-Danny Graves didn’t drop a game in winning matches.

Wood River hosted Burley and the Community School Tuesday, then has another home league match with Jerome Thursday, April 11.
