The HRV boys tennis team got out to a strong Intermountain Conference start on Friday, beating Pendleton 5-2 on the road.
The Eagles may have won a sixth match (No. 4 doubles), but it was called due to darkness.
“Our guys did very well,” coach Shayla Moline said. “We had good, solid wins from our No. 1 and No. 2 singles, and our No. 3 and No. 4 singles also had close matches.”
The Eagles were led by superb performances from No. 1 Alec Asbridge (6-2, 6-1) and No. 2 Sean Ritter (6-1, 6-2), as well as three convincing doubles wins.
The No. 1 team of Cam Emerson and Joseph Broschart won its match 6-2, 7-5, while the No. 2 team of Matt Byrne and Patrick Murphy came out on top 3-6, 6-2, 7-6.
Meanwhile, the No. 3 doubles team of Bruce Chiang and Pepe Contreras posted a 6-3, 6-4 win to give HRV the edge in the overall match score.
Jimmy Oates and Joseph Yang played No. 4 doubles and were deadlocked at a set apiece (3-6, 6-3) before the coaches agreed to call the match due to darkness.
Junior Alex Lozano was right in the thick of his No. 3 singles match, losing the first set 4-6 and taking his opponent down to a tiebreaker in the second set before losing 6-7.
No. 4 singles player Neil Chiang also lost a close match of 5-7, 6-7 (3-7 tiebreaker), but Moline was impressed with his effort.
“Neil played a guy who plays just like himself, which was kind of scary,” she said.
HRV hosted Sandy on Tuesday but results were not yet available.
