UMATILLA - Helix lost a 5-2 match against Umatilla tennis Wednesday.
Helix boys Grant McMurray and Benn Fordice won both their singles matches over their Vikings counterparts, but they were the only winners of the day.
"We've got a lot of work to do," said Grizzlies head coach Wayne Miller.
Fordice had a good match at No. 3 boys singles, but the rest of the team needs practice, he said.
This was the Grizzlies second match of the season.
A team record was unavailable.
They play Riverside at home Friday if predicted storms hold off.
