Bruins claim tennis victories over Tenino, Stevenson

Columbia High's undefeated girls tennis team ran its SWW 1A League record to 2-0 Monday with a 3-1, rain-shortened victory at Stevenson.

Johanna Zimbelman improved to 4-0 in No. 1 singles action, sweeping Katie Dudley 6-4, 6-2.

On the doubles courts, No. 1 team Brooke and Mara Hathaway and No. 2 team Amanda Rieper and Adrienne Charap both won in straight sets.

One other match--No. 2 singles--was completed before rain washed out the rest of the varsity/junior varsity slate.

In that match, Noe Roche lost to Diva Napierala in three sets, 6-3, 1-6, 6-3.

At Columbia High 4, Tenino 1:

The Bruins defeated the Beavers for the first time in at least five years last Thursday, winning a SWW 1A League meeting on the Park Center Courts.

With the win, the Bruins improved their record to 3-0 under first-year head coach Rae Meaney.

Columbia clinched the victory by taking all three singles matches.

Johanna Zimbelman won her No. 1 singles match in three sets, battling back from a 6-2 first-set setback to take sets two and three, 6-1, 6-2.

Noe Roche and Robin Swanhuyser also enjoyed success on the singles courts, winning their No. 2 and No. 3 singles matches in straight sets.

The Bruins win on the doubles courts came from No. 2 team Amanda Rieper and Adrienne Charap in three sets.

Rieper and Charap took the first set 6-3, ceded their advantage with a 6-2 loss in the second but came back strong in the third to win 6-0.

In junior varsity action, Columbia won three of four singles matches and split the two doubles matches.
