Undefeated, Ryan Andrews will face real foes Monday

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.
