Chelan hosts Quincy at Tuesday’s CTL Opener

information released by Coach Rothlisberger
East Valley @ Chelan (non-league): This week was an outstanding 1st week of matches for Chelan tennis.  We “played up” by taking on two of the top programs in the 2A CWAC (down south).   Nobody had an easy match this week, and so we learned a lot about ourselves.  The results were very positive.
There was also a lot of spooky symmetry this week.  The Chelan boys defeated Ephrata 3-2 earlier in the week, but lost to East Valley (Yakima) 2-3.  The Chelan girls flipped that script, losing to Ephrata 2-3, but winning against East Valley today 3-2.  More symmetry beyond that:  the Chelan boys lost all 3 doubles matches today, but won both singles matches.  You guessed it:  the Chelan girls lost their singles matches vs East Valley, but won all three doubles matches.
Despite this being a home match for 1A Chelan, we chose to play the CWAC 2A format of two singles and three doubles (rather than the 1A CTL format of 3 singles and 2 doubles) so that we could expand our varsity lineup from 7 players to 8 players.  We have decent depth in our squad, so it’s nice to get more Chelan players some varsity reps!  Here are the details:
