Omak takes 9 out of 10 matches

Chelan boys hand Lions first loss

— Omak won nine out of 10 varsity tennis matches at Quincy on Saturday.

The girls finished 5-0 and the boys 4-1.

Rocio Cruz lead the way for the Lady Pioneers with a big win at No. 1 singles by defeating Quincy’s Kathy Ayala 6-1, 6-4.

“Rocio lost to Ayala earlier in the season making this a big turn around for her,” Omak coach Lance O’Dell said.

“In probably the gutsiest match of the day Hannah Love, playing No. 2 singles, won her first set in a tie-breaker, before falling down 1-5 in the second set,” the coach said. “Hannah then proceeded to win six straight games to come out on top 7-6, 7-5 over Quincy’s Anita Lombardo.”

Morgan O’Dell and Gabe Holz kept their undefeated streak (8-0) at alive at No. 1 doubles over Sonny Fregoso and Rollie Ronish III.
