Baker tennis players had a successful weekend at the Treasure Valley Community College tournament in Ontario.
The Baker girls placed in every event, and the boys in three events.

“It was a long weekend, but the girls played pretty well,” added assistant coach Jody Averett.
Tournament divisions were divided into No. 1 players, No. 2 players, and No. 3 players both in singles and doubles.

Baker actually led 2-0 after two innings in the opener.
Tori Brown opened the second inning with a solo home run. Laura
Wilson then reached base on an error. Jessi Stephens followed with a
single and both runners advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Mackenzie

a couple of good wins.”
Ty Everson, Stephen Talbot and Derek Blankenship led Baker’s offense.
As the saying goes, “It’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature.”

In the fourth inning, Coleman Lay led off with a double. He scored

“Giving up just two hits a doubleheader. I’ll take that,” said Baker coach Al McCauley.
“Tori had a no-hitter going until the next to the last batter. The
girls made some great defensive plays behind her to keep it that way.”
Baker had 19 hits in the twinbill, 11 for extra bases.
“The girls are swinging the bats well right now,” McCauley said.
“We’ve been getting some good production throughout the lineup. I’ve
been particularly happy with the bottom of the lineup.
“And we played real solid defense,” the Baker coach added.
Baker split a tennis match with Ontario Tuesday at the Ash Grove Complex.
Baker won the boys half of the match 4-1, but dropped the girls match 3-2.

“Ontario was just showing up, and they didn’t think we’d play, but we got it in.”
