A singles sweep helped the Libby High School boys tennis team to a 4-3 victory over Polson on the home courts Thursday afternoon.

The Loggers’ Alex Cislo, Hunter Sheffield, Cree Maloney and Levi Edwards-Myslicki all won their matches against their Pirate counterparts – and in fairly easy fashion. In those four matches, Libby’s players won eight of nine sets.

Cislo beat Tyler Engebretson, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 at No. 1 singles. Sheffield won 6-4, 6-0; Maloney won 6-1, 6-2; and Edwards-Myslicki won 6-0, 6-2.

It was a different story in doubles, however, with the Pirates taking those three matches. The closest match came at No. 1 doubles when Polson’s Seth Hovenkotter and Kyle Cooper outlasted Libby’s Nate Broden and Cyrus Maloney, 7-6 (7-2), 6-4.

Jackie Mee cruised to a 6-1, 6-1 win over Jane Probst in the girls’ competition. Lindsay Kehn also took a victory for the Lady Loggers by downing Sara Keeble, 6-2, 1-6, 6-3.

The Pirates had the upper hand on the team score, 5-2.

Libby next heads to the Cutbank Tournament on April 17-18.
