Aaron Pado and Grayson Forsberg waltzed through to more 6-0 victories. Brandon Deeter and Travis Ferre also solidified first- and second-round wins. Alex Omar made his first appearance, winning with Tyler Paladino to lock in the Truckee victory in the third round.
The Wolverines then rode a total team effort to another 12-6 victory, this time at home against McQueen last week.
The starters did an excellent job by winning five of the first six sets to give the team a comfortable lead early. The top singles seeds, Cutler and Kamenetsky, won their first two sets handily, extending Truckeeand#8217;s lead.
Pado and Forsberg are in their third year as the top doubles seed and are looking to show some dominance in that spot, which they did by winning 6-0, 6-0 against McQueenand#8217;s top seeds. Brandon Deeter and Travis Ferre are a new doubles team this year and are looking impressive, winning 6-3, 6-3 through the first two rounds.
The strength for Truckee is its depth, as its No. 3 doubles team, Zach Conradson and Joey Murray, won 6-3 against McQueenand#8217;s No. 3. In their second set, the pair had to face McQueenand#8217;s No. 1 seed. Their 7-5 victory clinched the win for Truckee.
