The Del Norte boys’ tennis team got its 2020 season off to an emphatic start Saturday, cruising to a 9-0 victory over the Ferndale Wildcats in Humboldt-Del Norte League action at Del Norte High School.
The Warriors set the tone for what would be a relatively quick afternoon, as the tandem of Zach Lor and Evan Drown dropped just one game in a 6-0, 6-1 victory from the No. 1 doubles position. The duo of Seth Lee and Tyler Stanley kept the momentum going with a 6-2, 6-2 victory in the No. 2 doubles match.
In what was easily the most highly competitive match of the afternoon, Del Norte’s Jude Hayden and Leandro Aguilar outlasted their Wildcats opponents in a marathon 6-3, 1-6, 7-6 (7-5 tiebreaker) match from the No. 3 doubles spot that lasted nearly two-and-a-half hours and saw six matches completed before the Warrior duo was finally able to come away with the narrow victory.
Having swept the three doubles matches to begin the day, Lor got things rolling for the home team in his No. 1 singles match with a 6-1, 6-0 victory. That was followed by a double-bagel 6-0, 6-0 victory from Drown in the No. 2 singles match. Seth Lee cruised to a 6-0, 6-1 win in the No. 3 singles match, while Stanley eked out a 6-4, 6-4 victory in the No. 4 singles position. Hayden then wasted little time in disposing of his opponent by a 6-1, 6-0 score in the No. 5 singles match.
The Warriors are scheduled to host two Humboldt-Del Norte League matches this week, beginning Tuesday when the McKinleyville Panthers come to Del Norte High. Action is scheduled to get underway at 3:30 p.m. The Warriors then return to the home courts Saturday March 7 when they play host to the Fortuna Huskies. Those matches are scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.
