The tennis team consists of
five netters. Charlie Martell,
a man in his early 30s, hails
from Mulino and sports an ag­
gressive game. Mark Sanford,
a 20-year old from Medford, is
currently playing at the top of
his game, according to
Buckley, and has good reflexes
and sound ground-strokes.
Allen Cloud, from West
Linn, is feared for his ground­
strokes. Oddys Trillo, from
Venezuela, belts a top top­
spin, forehand and backhand.
Trillo is 19. Arron Osmont is
considered a beginner, and is
out on the court with the rest of
the team hacking away.
