information released by Coach Rothlisberger
The last of the boys’ District 6 1A/B qualifying matches for the state tournament took place at Lake Chelan Shores on Thursday.
For Chelan, junior Rylen Moody began the day with a high pressure match vs Charlie Lyons of Cascade which was winner to state – loser out. Rylen was clutch, playing possibly his best tennis of the season in a dominant 6-0, 6-1 victory over a quality opponent to clinch a state berth. In his follow-up match for seeding, Rylen lost to Owen Painter of Okanogan 6-4, 6-2.
In boys doubles, Chelan’s Luke Christopherson and Sam Bordner were in the same boat, needing a victory to clinch a berth. Unfortunately they fell to Hyer and Dearie of Quincy (the eventual 3rd place finishers) 2-6, 6-7. In their follow-up match, Sam and Luke defeated Peterson and Willard of Manson to claim the alternate spot out of District 6.
