Aspen High boys tennis serves for success
September 30, 2014
The Aspen High School boys tennis team celebrated senior day with another dual match victory.
The Skiers, unbeaten in duals this season, stepped up in tennis competition last weekend when Alexander Dawson School from the Boulder area visited Aspen.
Aspen eventually won 4-2 in a back-and-forth dual against the private school. Rain halted the final match.
Seniors and No. 1 doubles players Dylan Behr and Gordon Carr won 6-1, 6-1 to finish the season undefeated in dual matches.
Another big win for the Skiers came from senior Cooper Helm at No. 2 doubles along with Andy Vernier. They pulled out a tough 6-4, 7-5 victory.
Also collecting wins last weekend were No. 1 singles player Dillon Leasure (6-3, 6-2) and No. 2 singles player Henry Godfrey (6-2 2-6, 6-2).
