Tennis nets wins over Grandview
The Jackrabbit tennis teams grabbed a pair of CWAC wins on Friday against visiting Grandview.
The girls won 4-1 and the boys won 3-2.
Both the boys and girls easily won all three doubles matches. Natalie Thomsen and Rachel Faw led the way on the girls’ side with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Monse Oropez and McKenzie Rios.
“I really like how Rachel and Natalie are working together,” said coach Mike Mills. “I think it’s just good chemistry between the two. They don’t get too high or too low. They are steady and good athletes.”
In second doubles, Anahi Sanchez and Mariana Ramirez defeated Savannah Gonzalez and Sonya Trevino 6-0, 6-2. Mills said they have their own style of mixing things up and being aggressive.
“They make a lot of changes to their opponent in the match,” he said. “They’ve been working angles and they are aggressive at the net, especially Mariana. She is fearless.”

The Jackrabbits switched gears and played three singles matches last Thursday. The Caribou Trail League plays only two doubles matches. This did not matter to Bassett, who is the Lady Jacks top singles player. She defeated Allie Schwantes 6-2, 7-6 (7-5). On the boys side, Ronish clipped Micah Larson 6-4, 6-1 and Plascencia defeated Chris Weathersby 6-2. It was the first singles match of the season for Ronish and Gu. Petersen.
“It’s good to change them up,” said Rasmussen. “They both needed to work on their serves.
The girls defeated Chelan, while the boys were able to pick up two match wins from the Goats.
“I was happy to take two from Chelan,” said Rasmussen. “They are a good team.”
