Roseburg girls lose two duals on opening weekend

March 18, 2019

Roseburg’s girls tennis team faced Sunset and Jesuit during the weekend and dropped both duals in Beaverton.

Sunset won 7-1 over Roseburg. The Tribe’s only win was by No. 3 doubles team Lauren Sandfort and Hannah Root, who won 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 over Kathryn Thompson and Jillian Jang.

“Our team is obviously a doubles-centered team and (Sunset) still won three out of four matches,” Roseburg coach Jeremy Root said.

Jesuit bested Roseburg, 5-3, the following day. Roseburg’s No. 1, 2 and 3 doubles teams posted victories.

“Mackenzie Eichman looked good, but she was facing the top girls around the state so it appeared to be a rough No. 1 player,” coach Root said.

Eichman lost 6-1, 6-1 to Nicole Hopman of Jesuit.
