Cougars, Bombers split in CVAC tennis

LAKE PLACID — The Northeastern Clinton and Lake Placid boys’ and girls’ tennis teams split a pair of matches in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference play Monday.

On the boys’ side, the Cougars earned a 4-1 defeat of the Blue Bombers.

Northeastern Clinton’s Ryan Marks (No. 1 singles), Devin McManus (No. 2 singles), Adam Khater and Brendan Boutin (No. 1 doubles) and Austin and Troy Tetreault (No. 2 doubles) earned victories.

“A very strong Northeastern Clinton team commanded the court (Monday),” Lake Placid coach George Bailey said. “Ryan Marks and the team of Adam Khater and Brendan Boutin showed what they might be bringing to the qualifiers next week. A surprise win by Nik Kobe of Lake Placid kept the score from a shutout.”

The Blue Bombers evened the score in girls’ play, defeating the Cougars, 3-2.

Brenna Garrett (No. 2 singles), Kayla Hudson (No. 3 singles) and Sophie Marelli and Liza Marinas (No. 1 doubles) led the charge.
