Grangeville netters show strength in league

Tennis

— The tennis league is a bit bigger than the Grangeville’s league in other sports, as Coeur d’ Alene Charter, Clark Fork, Culdesac, Orofino, Timberline, Clearwater Valley, and GHS all competed together last Saturday at Lewiston High School. It’s a rare chance for the northern schools — Coeur d’Alene Charter and Clark Fork — to meet the southern teams for seeding before districts May 12.

The same schools will meet again April 30 at LHS.

“Grangeville was very happy with the play from its No. 1 mixed double team,” GHS coach Kerry McCulley noted. “Sims and Wiltse, the freshman mixed double team of Forsmann and Kennedy, both teams went undefeated in play in very warm conditions.”

Rachel Kelley lost both her No. 1 girls singles matches against Charter opponents, but Chloe Dame beat Ross of Culdesac 8-2.

Grangeville picked up wins in boys doubles and girls doubles, with Reuter and Ramirez beating a Clark Fork duo and Rockwell and Frei beating a Charter duo.

In No. 1 girls singles, Sophie Bush beat Dake of Clark Fork.

In girls doubles, Dame and Gomez won their match against a Charter duo and Tosten and Lutz beat Clark Fork.

Earlier in the week, Grangeville played at Clearwater Valley and McCulley noted the teams are “evenly matched.”

“This was the first match played for both teams returning from spring break,” he said. “Conner and Kennedy came from behind to beat Herrick and Jackson in a tiebreaker in a see-saw battle that was a rematch of one halted due to rain the last time these two schools met in March.”
