The Oak Ridge Wildcats tennis team played Maryville last Thursday.
At number one singles, Archer Marlow won against Maryville’s Matthew Gideon 8-5, and Wildcat Andrew Brady defeated number three Devon Jones 9-7.
Archer partnered with Stuart Dorman at number two Oak Ridge High School doubles to win 8-1 against Maryville’s Devon Jones and Nick Van Son.
For the Lady Wildcats, number one singles Jasleen Narula was narrowly defeated by Maryville‘s Rebecca Birdwell 9-8 (3).
A big win at number four doubles was had by Stephanie Romanoski and her partner Morgan Loggins 6-2 against Lady Rebels Faith Kirby and Brooklyn Kahn.
Oak Ridgers are invited to both 4-7 p.m. home matches at the high school this week to support both teams on Monday against Clinton and on Thursday with Campbell County.
“Both are matches that Wildcat Nation needs to be in the hunt for a District 3 team title at the end of the season,” Oak Ridge Coach David Bowman said.
Bowman said he was proud of Jina Jiang, who is pictured below near spectators who showed up for the match, and Rose Farahi, who work hard at practice to the learn the game of tennis.
“I’m especially proud that they volunteered their time today (Saturday) as safety marshals along the route for today’s Velo Classic Bike Race,” Bowman said. “They and Coach Joanne Bowman were at the intersection of Ollis Road and Poplar Creek to flag down cars and cyclists participating in the event this afternoon (Saturday afternoon).”
