Wolverines open conference play with sweep of Vikings

Polk County opened Western Highlands Conference play Tuesday in dominating fashion, sweeping Avery 9-0 in boys tennis action at Polk.

The Wolverines (2-1) won all seven matches played and picked up two wins by forfeit as Avery had just five players for the match.

Adam Kehrer’s 10-0 win at No. 1 singles set the stage for the day, with Andy Ballentine at No. 3 and Jack Smith at No. 4 also winning 10-0. Matias Akers at No. 2 and Cameron Greve at No. 5 had 10-1 wins.

Luke Becker and Gaige Lewis earned an 8-4 win at No. 1 doubles and Eric Avellaneda and Wylie Rauchschenbach capped the day with an 8-0 victory at No 2 doubles.

The Wolverines are slated to continue conference play on Thursday, hosting Mountain Heritage.
