Both Baker tennis teams made it two Greater Oregon League wins in a row Friday, sweeping Ontario at Ontario.

The Baker boys finished the day 5-0, and the girls 4-1.

In boys play, Lukas Huggins and Ian Rasmussen swept their singles matches in straight sets.

Jesse Burk also won his singles match, but needed three sets to do so.

Mathew Barnes and Rasmussen then teamed to win the No. 1 doubles match in two sets.

Hunter Stone and Ezra Taylor won the No. 2 doubles in three sets.

“Ontario has a lot of players,” said Baker coach George Keister.

“Their top two players are pretty good, but the rest of the team is inexperienced.”

The Baker girls, coming off their first win of any kind in two years against La Grande Thursday, won two singles and two doubles against Ontario.

Grace Huggins and Hollis Robb won their singles matches. Huggins won in straight sets, Robb in three sets.

Lindsay Livingston and Kassidy Hertel then won the No. 1 doubles, needing a tie-breaker in the second set.

Hannah Wilson and Lena Bowers used three sets to take the No. 2 doubles.

Baker is now idle until the weekend.

The Bulldogs host Fruitland Friday before traveling to Weiser Saturday.
