The Crook County Cowboys have picked just the right time to be playing their best tennis of the year.

After dropping every match they played for the first half of the season, the team has rebounded to put together a series of close wins as they prepare for the district tournament.

Thursday afternoon, the Cowboys once again pulled out a close match as they knocked off the Mountain View Cougars 5-3. Crook County won all four singles matches in the dual, as well as taking the No. 2

doubles match.

Garret Harper then won his No. 3 singles match 6-0, 6-1 over Wyatt Baldwin before Cayden Quinn closed out the singles matches with a 6-4, 6-3 win against Tyson Engel.

Mountain View finally earned their first win of the match as Derek Miller and Jakob Lenschen whipped Brick Woodward and Leonhard Pusl 6-1, 6-1.
