The Truckee boys’ tennis team jumped out to a big early lead against visiting Spanish Springs this past Thursday, which enabled the Wolverines to mix in all their players en route to a 12-6 win.

The usual starting lineup of singles players, including Jake Kamenetsky, Jackson Rohlf and Branden Deeter, all won their first-round sets.

Aaron Deeter and Aaron Pado took the first-round top seed, while Zack Conradson and Grayson Forsberg posted a formidable wall for the second seed. Colin Gerrard and Toby Ziegler held their third-seed spot.

After the starters led Truckee to a 6-0 first-round lead in the best of 18-set match, several juniors and sophomores stepped in.

Aaron Pado teamed up with younger brother Teagan Pado to win 6-2 in the second set. Sophomores Eli Yale and Brandon Flora were well matched in their first set, going into a tiebreaker and edging Spanish Springs 7-5. Singles players Joey Murray and Addison Dvoracek stepped in as well.
