TIGERS WIN ALL BUT ONE VARSITY MATCH VS. WEISER

The La Grande tennis team competed against Weiser (Idaho) for the first time this season Tuesday and did well.

"Just watching the kids warm-up, they were ready to play, which they proved," La Grande coach Mike Schireman said.

The boys won 5-0, while the girls went 4-1 on the afternoon.

"I felt all the matches were competitive," Schireman said.

No. 1 boys singles player Levi Morrison defeated Bryan Carpenter, 7-5, 6-4. Morrison's serving is improving, the coach said.

No. 3 singles player Tim Mollerstrom got a win over Justin Midthun, 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (9-7).

Schireman said it was good to see Mollerstrom win and get the monkey off his back.

"All of our doubles played solid, for the boys," he added.

Greg Schuft and Tyler Lester cruised by Weiser's Talon Vickers and Eric Johnson, 6-1, 6-1. Matt Nightingale and Seth Pennington picked up a win over Caleb Anderson and Mike Van Tassell 6-1, 6-4.

The girls' one loss was in singles action, as Weiser's McKenzie Gibbs defeated Megan Sherer 6-0, 2-6, 6-1.

Both girls' doubles teams played well, Schireman said.

Stephanie Keith and Hillary Girrard easily defeated MaKenzie Wheeler and Saysha Blazier, 6-1, 6-1. Shalece Hibbert and Karli Nebeker beat Brynna Syme and Flannery Coats, 6-2, 6-0.

Bethany Herman played a tough match for the junior varsity, Schireman said.

"I think she might have come up to the next level," he said. "She stroked the ball well today."

Herman outlasted, Courtney Hairup, 7-6 (6-8), 6-1, 6-3.

La Grande continues its home-stand Friday against Umatilla.
