Wolves sweep Torrington Fri.
August 26, 2020
The Green River High School tennis squad showed how competitive they are in a series of contests with three other schools over the weekend.
The team swept Torrington Friday in Laramie and nearly accomplished the same against Powell at home, with the Lady Wolves dropping one match against the Panthers Saturday. The team broke even against Cody, who also visited Green River, as the Lady Wolves lost 3-2, with two matches being decided in a tiebreaker, while the Wolves overcame 3-2, with three of the matches being determined by a tiebreaker.
Head tennis coach Phil Harder said he’s happy with how the team played.
He said they’re working on some adjustments to how they play, but said the athletes who worked throughout the summer are showing the results of that commitment.
The team will play in Rock Springs Thursday at 4 p.m. and will face the Natrona County high schools Friday. The team takes on Kelly Walsh at 11 a.m. and faces NCHS at 3 p.m.
