Rematch – Miner tennis welcomes Metro newcomer, leader

Since suffering its lone league loss on Sept. 21, Nevada Union’s varsity tennis team did its part in making sure that Thursday’s rematch with Granite Bay will be a big one.

The Miners are 5-1 in Metro Conference action, while the Grizzlies – league newcomers this fall – are 6-0.

“They beat us there 6-3, so we’re hoping to return the favor,” NU head coach Mike Blake said. “But they’re a pretty good team.”

Thursday’s match is slated to start at approximately 3:20 p.m. at Nevada Union.


Nevada Union has two matches at home this week, one being a Metro Conference clash Thursday between the fourth-place Miners (3-4 Metro) and third-place Granite Bay (3-1-3) and the other being of somewhat the non-traditional variety.

The Miners will host North Lake Tahoe in a nonleague match under the Hooper Stadium lights Friday night. Varsity action is set to start at 5 p.m.

Forest Lake Christian – The Central Valley Christian League’s first-place Falcons (5-0) will host third place Sacramento Lutheran (3-2) in FLC’s annual homecoming match played at Bear River High School. The match is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Friday.

Bear River – The Bruins, currently holding second place in the PVL with a 4-2-1 mark, host fourth place Mira Loma (3-2-1) at 3:30 p.m. Thursday.


After suffering its first PVL setback to host Colfax (6-0 PVL) Tuesday, Bear River’s varsity team will look to bounce back against Oakmont at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. The Bruins (5-1) won the previous meeting against the third-place Vikings (3-2) in three games.
