The Truckee boys tennis team finished the regular season with a solid win over North Tahoe and a forfeit win versus Hug last week.

Truckee managed to rotate in nearly every available player in its 17-1 set victory against North Tahoe, which had only its starting nine players.

“Being that this was both a divisional and league match, we needed to play those players who required seeding for the Northern Nevada Regional Tournament,” said Truckee coach Rick Deeter.

With all of its starters winning first-round matches, the Wolverines were in a solid position, 6-0, after the first round. Singles players Nico Gardella, Addison Dvoracek, and Toby Zeigler, as well as doubles teams Aaron Deeter/Ethan Gotts, Teagan Pado/Colin Gerrard, and Eli Yale/Colter Fellows, were all strong first-round contenders.

“The strong start allowed us to make some quick changes in the next two rounds,” said coach Marc Pado. Truckee’s No. 4 seed doubles team, Kevin Cross and Colin Deurlington, took on North Tahoe’s No. 2, playing a solid set to a 6-1 victory.

Sophomores Jack Feick and Tanner Smith, aka the Bryan Brothers, won 6-0 in one of their best sets of the season. Quinntin Butler and Cody Tilton separately took on North Tahoe’s No. 3 seed in singles matches with mixed results, 0-6 and 6-4, respectively.

In the final round, freshman Brandon Kinter and Curtis Krommenhoek won a final doubles set 6-3.

Truckee’s win means a first-place finish in the division and a bye in the first round of the team regionals this week.

Hug’s two singles players traveled to Truckee to face Ryan Schildge, Quinntin Butler, Curtis Krommenhoek, Brandon Kinter, Cody Tilton and Quincy Schram. Despite being a forfeit, Truckee won all of its matches to end on a high note, at 7-2 on the season.
