The Dutchtown tennis teams took to the court earlier this week, but they were handed two losses by Dunham.

The Lady Griffins took their loss, 4-1. Dunham won both of their singles matches by default.

When it came to doubles, Dutchtown was able to earn one victory when the team of Emile Ferguson and Gabrielle Castillo beat Dunham's Bailey Davis and Katie Clark in three sets: 3-6, 6-3 and 11-9.

However, the Lady Tigers were able to win all of the other doubles matches. Ann Moody and Susanna Bilbao easily beat Dutchtown's Abby Overstreet and Grace Overstreet, 6-1 and 6-0, and Lauren Brinson and Sydney Boudreax beat Nicole Redmond and Caroline Swanson in three sets: 7-5, 1-6 and 10-4.

When it came to the boys, Dunham earned a close 3-2 win.

In singles competition, Dutchtown's Tanner Hillmas was able to beat Dunham's Adam Fields by an emphatic 6-0, 6-0 margin. Griffin teammate Troy Pontillas kept the domination going as he also blanked the Tigers' Julian Rochenbauch in another 6-0, 6-0 match.

But when it came to doubles, Dunham was able to pull away and win the event as they claimed victories in all three matches.

The Tiger team of Dylan Goings and Justin Goings blanked Dutchtown's Evan Prejean and Grant Bruillette, 6-0, 6-0. Another convincing win came when Charlie Barber and Brian Saffell beat the Griffin team of Zach Wolleson and Cameron Gautreaux, 6-1, 6-1.

The final match was much more competitive, but Dunham was able to claim the win--which pushed them over the top.

A Dunham team was able to squeeze out a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Dutchtown's Zack Hattier and Hunter Hall.
