Nothing easy for DHS boys tennis

Competition remains blistering hot Day 2 of the Western Slope Open

The competition didn’t get any easier Saturday for the Durango High School boys tennis team.

After a day of blistering heat and blistering competition Friday that left the Demons with only a handful of wins, Durango couldn’t net any Ws on Day 2 of the Western Slope Open in Grand Junction.

“I think the guys are motivated, and there’s a lot of room for improvement,” DHS head coach Reagyn Germer said.

“As a team overall, there’s just room.”

At No. 1 singles, Ryder Searle lost to Fairview 10-7.

At No. 2 singles, Aaron Cash lost to Fruita Monument 10-1.

At No. 3 singles, Wesley Komick lost to Grand Junction Central 10-4.

At No. 1 doubles, Dylan Blair and Patrick Neal lost to Greeley West 10-8.

At No. 2 doubles, Blake McDaniel and Jalen Muller lost to Aspen 10-3.

At No. 3 doubles, Alec Ensign and Harrison Quick lost to Steamboat Springs 10-5.

At No. 4 doubles, Garrett Crowell and Boyd Matheson lost to Littleton 10-3.

I don’t think the scores really reflect how well the guys played,” Germer said. “I just think that they played really well.”

Durango will play its first home matches of the season next weekend, first at 4 p.m. Friday against Grand Junction, then Grand Junction Central at 10 a.m. Saturday at the DHS tennis courts.
