Cutthroats pull out 7-5 win over Wolverines

Prep tennis clash

Winning five of six singles matches, The Community School tennis team pulled out a 7-5 victory over arch-rival Wood River High School Monday on the Copper Ranch tennis courts in Hailey.

Three split-set victories—in #1 girls’ singles, #1 boys’ doubles and #2 mixed doubles—enabled coach Mark Scribner’s two-time defending state champions from Sun Valley to earn the hard-fought triumph.

As expected, the Cutthroats dominated boys’ singles. They lost only one game in three wins. #1 Tyler Martin defeated William Dubois 6-0, 6-0; #2 Joel Evans got past Gavin Kastner 6-1, 6-0; and #3 Scooter Sabel beat Bryce Newcomb 6-0, 6-0.

Girls’ singles looked problematic for the Cutthroats when Wood River’s Amanda Parks won the first game of the #1 clash. But Amy Alexander of Sun Valley stormed back to win the match 2-6, 6-1, 6-3. And #2 Jordan White breezed 6-4, 6-0 over Amanda Smith of WRHS.

Wood River salvaged #3 singles with Ellie France winning 6-4, 7-5 over Ginna Anderson.

As expected, Wood River swept girls’ doubles: #1 Ashley Lakey and Kiette Tucker 6-2, 6-2 over Caitlin Cairncross and Blake Ellis; and #2 Allison Kelsey and Abby Fairman 6-3, 7-5 over Erika Connelly/Lily Mott.

In boys’ doubles, #1 Luke Fostvedt and Juan Munoz of The Community School prevailed 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 over Patrick Brennan and Danny Gariepy. In a close one, Hunter Storey and Michael Kunz of WR survived 6-3, 4-6, 7-5 over Kevin Wade and Ben Roth of K/SV.

Both mixed doubles matches went to split sets.

#1 Dixon Mooseau and Hadley DeBree of Wood River won 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 over Sam Mott and Joanie Baumgardner; and #2 J.P. McNeal and McKenzie Hart rallied for a 3-6, 6-1, 6-0 win over Richard Kelsey and Alexandra Jackson of WRHS.

Last Tuesday the Cutthroats defeated host Gooding 11-1.

In boys’ singles the Cutthroats dropped only three games in sweeping the Senators: #1 Scooter Sabel 6-1, 6-0; #2 Tyler Martin 6-0, 6-1; and #3 Joel Evans 6-1, 6-0.

Girls’ singles winners were #2 Amy Alexander 6-3, 6-0 and #3 Ginna Anderson 9-6.

The boys’ doubles category ended with snappy straight-set victories by #1 Sam Mott and Luke Fostvedt, and #2 Kevin Wade and Ben Roth.

In girls’ doubles, Caitlin Cairncross and Blake Ellis won the #1 match 7-5, 6-1, and Pauli Ochi and Erika Connelly teamed for a 6-3, 6-0 win in #2.

Mixed doubles winners in straight sets were Juan Munoz and Joan Baumgardner, and McKenzie Hart and J.P. McNeal.

On Friday the Cutthroats overwhelmed Declo 12-0.

After playing a rematch with Twin Falls Tuesday afternoon at Warm Springs Tennis, the Cutthroats host Gooding today at 3:30 p.m. on the creekside courts then take a two-week break. They resume May 5 at home against Wood River.
