Wildcats lose to top 'Dogs | Tennis

Facing what Oak Harbor coach Horace Mells called the best Mount Vernon tennis team in 15 years, the Wildcats lost a nonleague match 5-2 on the Bulldogs' courts Monday, Sept. 17.

Wildcat wins came in fourth singles from Harrison Miller (6-4, 6-3) and third doubles from Tom Dale and Jacob Nelson (2-6, 7-6[6], [10-6]). Dale and Nelson played a super tie breaker instead of a third set because the team outcome of the match had already been decided.

Mells said, "Mount Vernon has a very good tennis team…We played them well, and players are finally implementing what's being taught during practices."

Other singles results: 1, Will Southard lost 3-6, 2-6; 2, David Kusnick lost 1-6, 0-6; 3, Carter Saar lost 0-6, 0-6.

Doubles: 1, Ziwei Peng/Jose Dimaculangan lost 0-6, 0-6; 2, Casiano Atienza/Antonio Unpingco lost 2-6, 3-6.

Oak Harbor (0-3, 1-5) entertains Marysville-Pilchuck (0-3, 1-5) at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19.
