MILTON-FREEWATER - The Pioneers' boys tennis team lost, 9-3, to Pendleton here Monday.
"It's always nice playing Pendleton," said Mac-Hi coach Michelle Snyder. "They have a good team and it is big enough that a lot of my players get to play. We lost 9-3, but everybody went out and played hard and had fun."
First-year player Alexis Robles was the only winner in singles. He defeated Thomas James, 8-0.
"Alexis has come out and worked hard for me this year," Snyder said. "I was happy to see him put a win on the board for us."
The boys took two wins in doubles.
No. 3 doubles team Aleks Cortez and Nik Cortez won their match, 8-5, over Bucks Travis Banister and Marshall Bixler.
"Aleks and Nik are often in the shadow of the doubles teams above them," Snyder said. "Today they really shined. I am proud of them."
The No. 4 doubles team of Cody Clark and Sam Perry also posted a win for the Pioneers.
