After consecutive losses by No. 1 boys singles player Brett Lane and No. 2 player Nick Coleman, Casper got the boys side back on track at No. 3 for a nail biter of a match against Gus Peterson.

When the final shot hit inside the back line, Casper tallied a 9-8 winner for his first victory of the 2014 campaign.

“The boys showed great effort and determination today,” Rolfe added. “Ione has some tough competition on the boy’s side. I am eagerly anticipating our tournament and the rest of our season.”

Sherman hosts Umatilla at 4 p.m. today.
