PREP TENNIS: Riders, Wolves both sweep in Olympic League

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles boys tennis team remained solidly in second place in the Olympic League with a 7-0 thrashing over Olympic on Monday.

The Roughriders didn’t even lose a set on the day as they pushed their record to an outstanding 11-2. Singles’ players Reefer Gelder, Caleb Flodstrom and Landon Seibel all won in straight sets.

The doubles’ teams of Milo Whitman/Wyatt Hall, Seth Woods/Dru Clark, Damon Gundersen/Michael Soule and Tanner Price/Kam Noard all won in straight sets.

It was the sixth 7-0 sweep for the boys this season.

“We got off to a good start and kept the pressure on them, ” said coach Brian Gundersen.
