Lovell and Harder named Athletes of the Week


It took time for Jonah Lovell and Nate Harder to come together as a doubles team.

Sprague High School’s No. 1 doubles team lost their first match as a doubles team this season, but then won their next four conference matches in strong fashion.

Lovell, a senior, and Harder, a junior, defeated Forest Grove’s Mitchell Faris and Douglas Wilbur 6-7, 6-5, 6-2 on Wednesday and McKay’s Jason Tran and William Schaap 1-6, 6-4, 6-3 on Thursday.

Harder and Lovell were selected as the athlete of the week by a Facebook vote of readers.

Harder was a state consolation finalist in doubles last year and Lovell was a state qualifier in singles.

Harder and Lovell, and the other the athletes of the week from the school year, will be honored during the first Mid-Valley Sports Awards show on June 7 at the Salem Convention Center.
