Prosser net squads slip by Greyhounds


A win by Greyhound tennis player Kevin Floyd wasn't enough to boost the team to a victory over Prosser. Both Grandview's boys and girls teams lost to the Mustangs. Floyd easily returned hits to him as he dominated Prosser's No. 1 singles player, Serg Torres.

GRANDVIEW - Despite victories by Kevin Floyd, Cristina Meza and the doubles pair of Nick Saldana and Robert Madrigal, the Grandview High School boys and girls tennis squads fell to Prosser yesterday.

Monday's non-league match was a make-up of a competition that had been rained out back in late March.

The Prosser boys edged the Greyhounds by a 3-2 score, thanks to winning two of the three doubles contests. Grandview earned a split in the two singles matches.

The first of the Grandview boys' wins came from Floyd. Playing No. 1 singles, he made light work of Prosser's Serg Torres, winning 6-0, 6-0.

Grandview's one other victory in the boys matches came at No. 2 doubles. The tandem of Saldana and Madrigal was upended 6-3 in the first set, but recovered to dust off Prosser's Kory Warwick and Jorgen Gilbertson by 6-4, 6-2 scores.

The Prosser boys' three victories came from Dan Ophart in No. 1 singles play-a 6-3, 0-6, 6-3 winner over Marco Diaz; from Casey Lusk and Bud Sexton in No. 1 doubles play-6-2, 6-3 winners over Paulino Fajardo and Zach Poteet; and from Shane Smith and Kyle Edwards in No. 3 doubles play-6-7 (4), 6-1, 6-2 winners over Raymond Cantu and Chase Linsley.

On the girls side, Prosser was a bit more dominant. The Lady Mustangs claimed a 4-1 win against Grandview.

The Grandview girls' only victory of the day was notched by Meza in No. 2 singles play. She clipped Prosser's Diana Smith by a 6-2 score in the first set. Meza went unchallenged in the second set, winning 6-0.

At No. 1 singles, Edie Montes of Prosser bested Miranda Shreeve 6-1, 6-4.

The girls doubles matches all went Prosser's way. In the No. 1 slot, Ashley Plata and Audrey Smith defeated Alison Grow and Danilea Martinez 6-3, 7-5. At No. 2 doubles, Adrienne Mills and Lauren Fiedler bested Kyla Leyendekker and Bianca Rodriguez 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.
