LTA PLAYERS TRAVEL TO EUGENE SWIM AND TENNIS CLUB
Our player’s continued to achieve their goals in the month of October, which began with the Eugene Swim and Tennis Club Dual Level 5. After defeating their first round opponents quite handily, both Peter Beatty and Tommy Mulflur had opportunities in their second rounds to test themselves against the first seeds of the tournament. Though Peter and Tommy did not beat these players, they played well and are eager to beat these players when they next encounter! Nick Mulflur lost in the first round to Matej Luptak, but was able to bounce back from his loss and win the consolation draw. Sam Stephenson continues to inch closer and closer to beating the top ranked players with every tournament. In his second round, Sam lost 7-5; 6-2 to Kent Andreasen, but made Kent work very hard to beat him. In the Girls 14s, Allie Hueffner and Erin Larner played a tough match against each other. Erin ended up winning this match, and made it to the semifinals where she was defeated by Angela Chen. Kadie Hueffner faced a tough first round match against Natasha Prokhneveska, but beat Rachael Nedrow in the consolation draw, and made it to the semifinals of consolation. Both Valerie Frank and Arianna Fardanesh defeated their first round matches with confidence, but faced tough players in their second round. Tasha Hueffner was able to make it to the semifinals of the girls 18s, but lost to Megan Moore in a close match.
