     In the first of two meetings this spring between perennial Idaho tennis powers Community School and Wood River High, the Cutthroats from Sun Valley emerged with a 9-3 dual meet victory Tuesday on the Hailey courts.

     The 3A Cutthroats captured five of the six singles matches, all in straight sets, and swept boys’ and girls’ doubles. Final totals by gender were 5-1 for the boys and 4-2 for the girls.

     Cutthroat boys’ singles winners were junior Willis Sanchez-duPont, junior George Everitt and sophomore Henry Everitt. No. 1 girls’ singles Olivia Ott and No. 3 Blair Baker, both sophomores, won matches in straight sets.

     Boys’ doubles winners for Sun Valley were No. 1 Roger Figge-Trenor Gould, both juniors, and No. 2 Dan DuFur-Gavin Blair, a sophomore and freshman. Also winning was No. 1 Emily Siegel and Samantha Busby, both sophomores.

     Community School coach Phil Huss said, “The Cutthroats played well in Hailey against local rival Wood River High School. We prevailed 9-3 with strong effort and good patient point construction across the board.”

     Tuesday, host Wood River won a weather-shortened league dual meet with Jerome by a 12-0 score. Pro sets determined the match winners. Singles winners were Danny Graves, Drew Morse, Michael Niedrich, Megan Murphy, Tate Morell and Josie Potts.
