Damonte gets by Douglas
Damonte Ranch handed the Douglas boys tennis team a 14-4 defeat on Thursday at Douglas High School.
Douglas coach Rod Smith said despite the loss, the Tigers played much better.
“Despite the lopsided score our team played much better tennis than the previous matches,” Smith said. “We generally served more consistently and our boys seemed to be more comfortable playing high school tennis. Co-captain, Zach Unger, once again played quality tennis, although he needed to grind against Damonte’s Garrett Scheid in the third round to come out on top. The doubles team of co-captain, Bryce Unger and Jame Jenks are learning how to win close matches. They had their first multi-win match, winning 6-4 and 7-6.
“Our number two doubles team posted their second set win of the season. Andrew Clutts and Hyrum Langkilde are only now starting to realize their potential.”
Douglas plays Tuesday at Hug.
