Truckee tennis | Boys still rollin’
Competing without two of its top players, the Truckee boys’ tennis team stepped up and defeated Sparks, 12-6, in an impressive battle on the road this past Thursday.
Truckee’s only senior and only junior players were unable to make the trip, sending what will be the 2012 Truckee tennis team to give competitors a preview of what’s to come.
Coach Ken Cutler mixed up the doubles partners a little bit to allow for new challenges.
Brandon Deeter teamed up with his younger brother, Aaron, to take home a doubles victory. Jackson Rohlf moved over to the singles court from his normal doubles dominance to win a solo match. Freshman Colin Gerrard and Toby Ziegler came up short, but took one of Sparks’ most consistent players to a 6-6 and 5-5 tie.
While several individuals produced small victories in their own right, the result for the entire team was a move to a 7-1 record. There are only two regular-season matches left, and Truckee is eyeing a home-court advantage for the first round of the regional championship.

Consistency has been key to the Truckee team’s success, with the top seeds on both singles and doubles getting the job done, week after week. Truckee is likely to be one of this season’s biggest surprises at both the team and individual Regional meets in October.
