by: MATTHEW SHERMAN - Lake Oswego's Caroline Dorman returns a serve during her match against West Linn Tuesday. Dorman and her partner Elle Meyer won their match in straight sets. The Lake Oswego girls tennis team continued its strong regular season as it finally got in some matches this week with sunny weather prevailing.

The Lakers downed Oregon City 8-0 Monday and were rarely tested in the match.

Lake Oswego swept in singles with its top three players only losing a combined one game. Katie Day, Caroline Dorman and Elle Meyer each won handily in straight sets, as did Crystal Liu at No. 4 6-3, 6-3.

In doubles, the team of Libby Dozois and Claire Murphy moved up to play No. 1 and emerged with a hard-fought 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 victory in the only match of the day that went to three sets.

Morgan Reno and Bridget Myers won 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles while Kaitlin Pataroque and Kelli Campbell emerged with a 6-3, 6-4 win at No. 3. Iola Humphrey and Megan Moore capped off the sweep with a straight sets win at No. 4 doubles.

Tuesday, Lake Oswego was back in action against a solid West Linn team on the road.

The Lakers swept the doubles bracket and came away with a solid 6-2 victory.

Lake Oswego was dominant in doubles with the teams of Dorman and Meyer, Murphy and Dozois and Reno and Myers all winning in straight sets, dropping just two games between them.

The No. 4 team of Pataroque and Humphreys played in a tough three-set battle and emerged 7-5, 4-6, 6-3.

In singles, Anna Meyer outlasted her opponent at No. 2 with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 victory and Maia Lee scored a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 4 singles.

The Lakers' match with Lakeridge last week was rained out and will be rescheduled for later in the season.
