Boys Varsity Tennis · Raiders Fall To Rival Speedway: Baker Wins Again!


The Raiders traveled to Speedway Thursday. The boys fought hard and played really well at all positions. Seniors Mark Baker and Aron Gebremskel played singles for the Raiders, and while Aron came up short he improved his on court decision making and patience! Baker withstood a tough comeback by senior Sam Earle on his senior night, winning in a 3rd set breaker 13-11. Congrats to Mark for hanging in, believing and fighting until the last point. In doubles action, sophomores Luke Cairns and Nathan Martin teamed up at number 1 doubles and had some good success problem solving and trying different tactics. Alex Rios and Simeon Pontones had some great points and are making headway as a team, falling 2-6 3-6.
Next week is a busy one as the boys face Shortridge, University, Roncalli and then the team heads into the conference tournament finishing out the week on Saturday at Riverside. Come by and cheer our boys on!

Go Raiders!
