The La Grande Tigers came within a couple of tiebreakers of sweeping the Baker Bulldogs in boys and girls prep tennis action Tuesday afternoon.

Baker won both the boys and girls contest 3-2, and it needed to win tiebreakers in two matches to do it.

Considering weve had just one practice after spring break, I kind of expected the kids to come out really flat, but all the kids really competed well, La Grande coach Mike Schireman said.

The Baker girls got an important win from Skye Forsgren and Melissa MacManimian in No. 2 doubles action, beating La Grandes Shalece Hibbert and Karli Nebeker 7-6 (7-1), 6-7 (5-7), 6-3. And the Bulldog boys needed Luke Rembolds 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (10-8) victory over John Woodfield in No. 2 singles play.

John Woodfield played a good match even though he lost, Schireman said.

The Tiger girls won two of three singles matches, while the boys won both their doubles matches.

The girls No. 1 singles player, Haley Hines, swept Gloria Ho in two sets, 6-2, 7-6 (7-4). Beth Youngblood then beat Kari Staten 6-4, 4-6, 6-1.

Haley had good movement (and was) real offensive. That was a good win for her, Schireman said. Beth Youngblood played well.

The boys doubles team of Tyler Lester and Greg Schuft defeated Mike VanArtsdalen and Joel Cummings 3-6, 6-1, 6-3. And Seth Pennington and Matt Nightingale beat Richard Black and Jace Wheeler 6-3, 6-1.

I do think that the next time around we can pick up just one more win on either side, Schireman said. Baker will be one of the better teams in the district.

La Grande next plays Thursday at Umatilla.
