Boys, girls tennis teams both defeat Estacada

The Philomath High School tennis teams notched two more victories this young season with the boys winning at home and the girls on the road — both on Thursday against Estacada.

Although the score on paper was 7-1, the boys won all of their on-court matches with the only blemish being a loss by default at No. 4 singles. Dawson Beckstead at No. 1 and Andrew Leonard at No. 2 both swept their opponents by 6-0, 6-0 scores. Teddy Benbow nearly matched his teammates with a 6-1, 6-0 victory at No. 3.

In doubles, Dylan Bell and Nick Stucki were challenged but came away with a 6-4, 6-4 win. Judah Bacho and Mark Grimmer teamed up at No. 2 and took a 6-1, 6-0 victory. The No. 3 duo of Jace Barrett and Noah Curtis won in the only three-set match of the day, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3. And at No. 4 doubles, Tomas Harris and Gardin Fairbanks defeated their opponents, 6-2, 6-3.

The PHS girls won three of four singles matches and three of four doubles matches for the 6-2 team victory. In singles matches, Bailey Bell won in the No. 1 position by scores of 6-0, 6-1. No. 2 Noel Lundeen defeated her opponent, 6-0, 6-1. Sierra Johnson at No. 3 was a 6-0, 6-0 winner.

In doubles, Atira Fairbanks and Chloe Jurva beat Estacada’s best by scores of 6-1, 6-1. K Bacho and Lily Schell were 6-1, 6-0 winners at No. 2. Daniella Carlisle and Lorelei Schell at No. 3 won 6-4, 6-0.

Philomath’s boys (2-0) are scheduled to play again on Friday at North Marion. The girls (2-0) play at home against North Marion. Both matches begin at 4 p.m.
