All 16 Truckee players made it onto the court in Tuesdayand#8217;s competition against the Lakers. Truckee mixed it up a bit to give players an opportunity to join forces with new doubles partners.

Grayson Forsberg won 6and#8211;1 with Aaron Pado and then won 6and#8211;4 with Joey Murray, who then teamed up with Toby Ziegler to win another match, 6-1.

and#8220;Itand#8217;s great to see the starting players improving their overall game, but whatand#8217;s really exciting for me is seeing the level of our remaining players improve by leaps and bounds,and#8221; said coach Rick Deeter.
Truckee has been fortunate to have Ian Mindell from Tahoe Donner provide training and the offer of the Tahoe Donner Tennis Center as its home court.
