Parma is annually one of the toughest high school tennis teams in Idaho.

Baker knows that, but likes to schedul the Panthers anyway for quality competition.

Parma showed the Bulldogs how tough they currently are Friday, topping Baker 10-2 in a nonleague match at Parma.

"We just can't seem to find the forula to beat Parma," said Baker coach George Keister.

Ian Rasmussen won Baker's only varsity singles match Friday, 6-3, 6-2.

Lukas Huggins and Hollis Robb teamed to win a mixed doubles match 6-1, 6-1.

Baker is now idle until April 1 when the Bulldogs return to Parma to play both the Panthers and Homedale.
