Harris remains undefeated

Crook County not a factor in team scoring at tourney


Saturday the Crook County Cowgirls competed in the four-team Oregon Episcopal Tennis Tournament.

“It was a good tournament,” said Crook County Head Coach Lloyd Rodgers following the event. “We couldn’t win the tournament because we don’t have enough kids, but we played well against some good players.”

Elsa Harris remained undefeated, easily winning all three of her matches at the tourney. Harris won 6-1, 6-1 against an opponent from Newberg, took her match against Oregon Episcopal 6-1, 6-1, and won 6-1, 6-2 against Wilson.

“She had an easy day,” said Rodgers. “But she said that they were all good players and she had fun.”

The doubles team of Gwyneth Ptomey and Laura Fraser did nearly as well. The duo took their match against Newberg 6-2, 6-1 and won their match with Wilson 6-2, 6-0. However, they struggled early against Oregon Episcopal, dropping the first set 6-4. They rebounded to win the second set 7-6 and salvage a tie in the match.

Greta Harris played poorly in her first match, falling 6-2, 6-1 against Newberg. Harris rebounded to knock off her Oregon Episcopal opponent 6-3, 6-1, then took her match against Wilson 6-1, 6-0.

“She was just on fire after her first match,” Rodgers said.

The final Cowgirl to compete in the tournament was Maggie Kasberger, who won just one match on the day, a close win against Wilson.
