Weiser High School’s varsity tennis coaches could not have asked for a better showing by the team at Baker City, Ore., last week.
 The Wolverines swept the Bulldogs on their way to a 10-0 victory over an outmatched Baker City squad. The win on the road for Weiser was the second in a week. Weiser beat Vale here on March 14 in the season opener.

 Karson Brush also battled in three sets to get the win over Baker’s Shane Cunningham in boys singles. Brush dropped the first set 2-6 but came back to win the second and third sets, 6-4, 6-4.
