Ashland boys tennis team records 8-0 win over North Medford

The Ashland High boys tennis team swept its way through both singles and doubles play to claim an 8-0 win over North Medford on Tuesday afternoon.
Both of Ashland’s No. 1 singles and doubles matchups were early clean sweeps, with just about every other match closely contested.
Quite possibly the closest and most exciting match of the day came in the No. 3 singles, as Ashland’s Yize Yuan topped North Medford’s Kevin Kuhn in three sets, including a 10-6 outcome in Yuan’s favor in the third and decisive set.
Ashland travels to Klamath Union for a 4 p.m. match on Friday.
SINGLES: Nur Shelton, A, d. Jimmy Barringer, 6-0, 6-0; Henry Cook, A, d. Tyler Vistaunet, 6-3, 6-4; Yize Yuan, A, d. Kevin Kuhn, 7-5, 5-7, 10-6; Elan Teichman, A, d. Dylan Almanza, 6-2, 6-2.
DOUBLES: Rox Rogers/Brayden Rogers, A, d. Casey Hoggens/Michael Bui, 6-0, 6-0; Simon DiRienzo/Gabe Dreyer, A, d. Marco Meza/Tadyi Li, 6-0, 6-1; Charlie Burr/Artem Fischer. A. d. James Harris/Brandon Rhodes, 6-3, 7-5; Simon Cropper/Adrian Rennie, A, d. Joe Baures/Andrew Burnett, 6-2, 6-0.
CRATER 11, ASHLAND 0: At Central Point, Comets left-hander Larson Kindreich tossed a five-inning no-hitter as the Grizzlies were unable to pick up their first win of the season once again.
Kindreich faced just two batters over the minimum and struck out nine batters in the win.
Crater (8-1 overall, 4-0 league), one of the three remaining unbeaten teams in Midwestern League action entering the day, scored one in the first and third and two in the second to give Kindreich all the run support he would need early in the game.
Kindreich and his batterymate, catcher Trae Frodge, both had three-hit days at the plate, with the latter hitting a two-run in the fourth inning.
Eli Westrick got the start for Ashland (0-6, 0-4) and allowed five hits and four earned runs.
The Grizzlies and Comets will face one another again in a doubleheader at North Mountain Field starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
