The Polson tennis team visited Lake County rival Ronan on Thursday (May 6) and won all but two matches.

Ronan got singles wins from Skyler Shima and Dillon Pretty On Top. Otherwise, it was the Pirates’ day.

The Lady Pirates doubles team lost just three points in two matches, straight-set wins by Ara Mercer/Qia Harlan and Clara Todd/Taylor Collinge.

Meanwhile, Polson’s boys doubles teams, Torrin Ellis/Trent Wilson and Tate Barentsen/Noah Trosper also cruised to straight-set wins. Ronan forfeited two doubles matches and a singles match.

It was a bit of payback for Polson, which was swept at home against Ronan on April 27.

The regular season is winding down for both teams. Divisional play begins May 20 at Polson.
