Tennis sweeps Incline

With the advantage of a full squad, the Fallon girls tennis team rolled to a 12-6 win over Incline on Tuesday.

The Highlanders did not dress a No. 3 singles player, which led to three forfeits. On the court though, the doubles tandems of Josie Bekaires and Hannah Lindsay and Kali Strong and Jenna Spencer each went 3-0.

Hannah Perazo and Sam Price notched two wins for Fallon. Becky Conner, the Lady Wave’s No. 1 singles player, tallied three wins — one by forfeit — and a 7-5 win over Allison Tang.

On the boys side, Incline dressed only one player, Jack Miller, who went 0-3. The Highlanders forfeit the other 15 matches. Garrett Kalt, Tyler Wood and Adam Wadsworth each earned a win.
