The Del Norte High boys tennis team took care of business on Tuesday, defeating Fortuna on the road 6-3.

In the first match on Tuesday, Blake Polidore defeated Cole Demello 6-3, 6-2.

In the second match, David Standring won against Lewie Deak 7-6, (7-3), 4-5, RET. Olesen said the match ended early when Deak suffered an ankle injury and was unable to continue. He commended Standring for "tremendous sportsmanship as he literally carried his fallen opponent to the sidelines."

In the fourth match, Tyler Pitman of Del Norte fell to Matt Deems 6-3, 7-5. Deems is undefeated for the year.
