Corvallis sweeps Maroons in Southwestern A tennis

Butte Central tennis coach Becky Hancock called Thursday a “rough day.”

That came after her Maroons suffered losses to the always-tough Corvallis Blue Devils on a sun-sprinkled afternoon at Father Sheehan Park.

Corvallis won the boys’ dual 6-1. The Blue Devils won the girls’ match 7-0.

Freshman Tyge Yelenich, playing in the No. 4 singles spot, picked up Butte Central’s only win of the day. Yelenich beat Alex Healy 6-4, 6-4.

Frank Hendrickson switched places with Sam Sterns for the second outing of the year for the Maroons. Hendrickson teamed with Sam Joyce in the No. 1 doubles slot. Sterns played No. 1 singles.

Hendrickson and Joyce fell 6-2, 6-3 to Riley Jessop and Caleb Powell. Sterns fell 6-0, 6-1 to Corvallis’ top player, D.J. Pekoc.

Each match was decided in straight sets.
