GRANDVIEW - Grandview's girls tennis team finished its interrupted, rain-soaked match from earlier this week yesterday with Ellensburg, losing 4-1.

"Sadie and Victoria played a nail-biter of a match with two of their three sets going to tie-breakers," said Grandview Coach Ronda Penwell.

In other doubles play, Grandview's No. 2 team of Karissa Carpenter and Janessa Ruiz lost in two sets, 6-2, 6-1, to Ellie Siks and Jasmine Sanchez of Ellensburg.
