Hope Christian blanks PHS tennis teams

The Portales High tennis teams took one on the chin on Friday against Hope Christian at the Bill Wahlman and ENMU tennis courts as the Huskies swept both duels by 9-0 scores.

Three matches went to a supertiebreaker in the girls' clash, with Sabrina Montoya falling 10-3 to the Huskies' Nardos Dawit in No. 2 singles, Emily Walker losing to Melissa Rosenthal 10-5 at No. 3 singles and Walker and Belle Youngerwolf falling to Nardos and Semira Dawitt 10-6 at No. 2 doubles.

Originally scheduled as a two-day triangular, it became a dual with Hope Christian when Raton was unable to make the trip.

PHS tennis squads return to action on Monday with a 3 p.m. dual at Roswell Goddard.
