High school tennis teams adapt when a traffic accident delays meet between Service and Chugiak

Anchorage’s high school tennis teams have moved indoors for the rest of the season, sparing players from rainouts and windy conditions — but even with weather taken out of the equation, it’s not always smooth sailing.

Monday’s Cook Inlet Conference meet between Chugiak and Service at The Alaska Club East was delayed by an accident on the Glenn Highway that held up Chugiak. Once the Mustangs arrived, teams made things work by switching from a six-game, three-set format to eight-game pro sets.

Service won the meet 6-3, but Chugiak pulled out a victory in the day’s closest match when the mixed doubles team of CJ Johnston and Robert Wanek held off Service’s Elise Richardson and Wyatt Kornmesser by a score of 9-7.

Also this week, Dimond took a 7-2 win over Bartlett and West beat the Golden Bears 8-1.
