Westlake tennis falls in first district meeting with rival Lake Travis
Wednesday, October 3, 2012 |
With its district challenger hosting the biggest team tennis match of the season so far, Westlake was on the verge of a win but couldn’t quite get past budding rival Lake Travis on Sept. 27.
Lake Travis held an important edge after doubles play, taking a 5-2 lead before singles play started, putting the Chaparrals in too big a hole to overcome.
By virtue of the loss, should Westlake and Lake Travis meet in the district championship as is largely expected, Lake Travis will hold the home-court advantage.
The loss marks the first of the season for Westlake, now 14-1, with two more matches to go before the district tournament.
Westlake will host Austin High at 4 p.m. Thursday, then hosts Clear Lake at 10 a.m. Saturday, with the district tourney scheduled for Oct. 9-12.
Lake Travis 10, Westlake 7
