Submitted PhotoTruckeeand#8217;s Jake Kamenetsky in action against Wooster last week. The Truckee boysand#8217; tennis team is off to a 2-0 start.

The Truckee High boysand#8217; tennis team kicked off last week with an impressive 2-0 start.

In the first match of the season, the starting crew took a commanding 5-1 lead against Wooster. First- and second-round sweeps by Isaiah Cutler and Jake Kamenetsky, as well as shared top-seed spots by Zac Sallinger and Nathan Black, put up five of the top six singles victories.

The Wolverines clinched the victory with dominating wins by doubles teams Grayson Forsberg/Aaron Pado and Jackson Rohlf/Brandon Deeter in the first two rounds. Every player on the Truckee team, including first-time freshman players Aaron Deeter, Toby Ziegler and Colin Gerrard made an appearance on opening day. Truckee started the season with a solid victory, 12-6.

Truckee traveled to McQueen for a closely contested win that went right down to the wire.

McQueenand#8217;s top singles player and top doubles team swept all three sets each. That gave McQueen a solid six-set advantage. However, Truckee has depth. Outside of the top seeds in each category, Truckee stole four-out-of-four in the first round and three-out-of-four sets in the second round.

Critical early-round victories by Kamenetsky and doubles teams Zach Conradson/Tyler Paladino helped push Truckee ahead, 7-5, after two rounds. Needing to win three of the final six, Isaiah Cutler and Zac Sallinger won their final-round singles matches and top Truckee doubles seed Forsberg/Pado locked up the final necessary win to take down McQueen, 10-8.
