SPORTS: Port Angeles, Sequim boys tennis teams stay unbeaten

PORT ANGELES — Micah Roos was on fire, not losing a single game, to spark the Port Angeles boys tennis team to its third consecutive win Monday.

The Roughriders (3-0) rolled over Olympic League competitor North Mason 7-0, winning all three singles matches and all four doubles competition.

“I couldn’t think of a better way for our home opener to go,” Port Angeles coach Brian Gundersen said.

“Our young guys are really improving, and I’m excited about how the season is progressing.”

No one played better than No. 1 singles player Roos, who won 6-0, 6-0, and was named the player of the match.

“Micah is our best player and it showed today,” Gundersen said. “His opponent is a very good player, but Micah was in control of every part of his game.”

In other singles matches, Connor Reid won 6-1, 6-3 at No. 2 and Hayden McCartney also had an easy time at No. 3 with a score of 6-0, 6-1.

Port Angeles didn’t lose a set during the afternoon as the doubles teams fared as well.

Doubles aces AJ Konopaski and Luis Neumeir won 6-3, 6-1 at No. 1 while No. 2 players Sam Beasely and Derek Crain won 6-3, 6-0.

The No. 3 team of Michael Konopaski and Marcus Konopaski won 6-1, 7-5 while the No. 4 twosome of Troy Gallagher and Tavish Casey won 6-1, 6-4.

The Riders travel to Poulsbo today to take on North Kitsap.
