It has been an up-and-down season for the Grantsville boys tennis team, facing a tough schedule both in terms of competition and poor weather.
However, Thursday afternoon’s Region 13 match against Judge Memorial definitely qualifies as one of the high points for the Cowboys. Grantsville beat the Bulldogs 4-1 at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City, playing just its second region match of the season thanks to multiple postponements.
All four of Grantsville’s match wins came in straight sets. Porter Whitworth was a 6-4, 6-1 winner at second singles, and freshman Camdin Nelson won 6-1, 6-1 at third singles. Weston Tuckett and Carlos Silva teamed up for a 6-1, 6-2 win at first doubles and Max Coon and Joey Kurtz won their second doubles match 6-0, 6-3.
Seth Beckett suffered a hard-fought 6-2, 6-2 defeat at first singles for Grantsville.
The victory improved the Cowboys’ record to 7-6 overall this season. Grantsville was scheduled to face Rowland Hall in a region match Tuesday in Salt Lake City. The Cowboys will travel to Waterford on April 23.
