In the last seven matches, Ryan Andrews has steamrolled through his competition.
At number-one singles, the Hood River Valley High School tennis standout, a freshman, remains undefeated throught the season and is expected to have a strong showing at the district tournament starting monday in Hermiston.
His real competition, says coach Jon Hiatt, he has yet to face; but he may at the tournament.
Hiatt says the league’s toughest player is Summit’s number-one varsity single, whom Andrews has yet to face.
“Ryan should be seeded third or fourth at districts,” Hiatt said. “If he has a good tournament, he’ll make it to state.”
The top four singles and the top four doubles from the tournament will advance to state.
In the team’s most recent match this week against Hermiston, the boys lost 2-6, with Andrews and Scottie Ziegner picking up the only two wins.
At number-two singles Ziegner, also a freshman, has been having a solid season as well, with only one loss so far.
