Bulldog tennis falls to Castle Rock
Castle Rock swept the singles to edge Montesano in a Southwest Washington 1A League match Monday at Montesano.
Montesano’s doubles teams fought off strong challenges to remain unbeaten. April Easter and Katie Ayres completed a straight-set victory by winning a second-set tiebreaker. Bailey Malizia and Elizabeth Taborski were forced to a third set before prevailing.
“The doubles got tested a little bit, which is good going into district,” Monte coach Theresa Helland said.
