Strategy pays off for Cascade boys tennis team

OAK HARBOR—Cascade boys tennis coach Malcolm Mano took a chance and it paid off.

Citing a desire for more team chemistry, he split up his doubles team of Brenden Beaver and Bradley Le. Beaver played with Chris Chung and Le paired with Ysmael Abad, and both teams delivered victories as Cascade swept the doubles matches in a come-from-behind 4-3 Wesco North victory over Oak Harbor.

“It was pretty tight all the way across,” Mano said. “It was neck-and-neck all the way through.”

Oak Harbor took three of the four singles matches, including a surprise victory by Ryan Evans over Cascade’s Jonathan Pham, who entered the match with a record of 6-1.

“(Evans) was very consistent,” Mano added.

Beaver and Chung won a tough three-set match over Paul Jewell and Chris Bragg, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, to set up Le and Abad’s 6-2, 6-0 victory to take the meet.

Mano was very impressed with the Wildcats’ caliber of play.

“Oak Harbor is here to play this year,” he said. “They have improved a lot.”
