The Trojans traveled April 7 to Willow where they met the Yellowjackets on their home courts. “It was another good day of competition,” said Quincy High tennis coach Sarah Gallagher. “We were without our No. 2 and No. 3 players which moved everyone up to play tougher opponents.”


Kaleb Dupras lost in three sets of a long hard fought match, 7-5, 4-6, and 7-10. Dupras’ opponent, the Willows No. 1 player, is undefeated. Eli Vanasinchai won in the No. 2 slot, 6-4, and 6-3. “It was a great match,” said coach Gallagher. QHS team member Connor Pangburn played No. 3 and lost 3-6, and 3-6, “but it was closer than the score,” said coach Gallagher. Quinn McMichael went 3-6 and 1-6 at No. 4. Fisher Clark went 0-6 and 4-6 at No. 5. Chavis McAllister went 4-6 and 3-6 at No. 6, and Gabe Fletcher won 8-3.

Trojan tennis will play in Etna, Live Oak, and Dunsmuir before spring break. They will travel to Dunsmuir after the break and head straight from there into the league championship tournament days, Thursday and Friday, April 27 and 28. The final tennis match of the season is a home set of games Wednesday, May 4, at Quincy High School. Fans are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
