Nishaant Limaye (Shorecrest) def. Brady Anderson (Sehome) 6-0, 6-1 in the 2A district tennis final.

Nishaant had to battle back injuries all season and was only cleared to hit backhands in the last week of the season. He had to serve underhand the entire tournament for fear of reinjuring his back. The back pain never returned and he was able to dominate throughout the tournament, never giving up a set.

Nick North/ Daniel Wacker (Shorecrest) defeated Nate Pearsall/ Logan Schilder (Bellingham) 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (9-7) in the 2A district tournament.

This match tested the mental fortitude of each player. Shorecrest went down 2-6 in the third set tiebreaker and Bellingham only needed one more point to win the match. However, Shorecrest fought back to bring it to 6-6, only to lose the next point on their serve. This gave Bellingham their 5th and final chance to win the match, but Shorecrest overcame all the odds and managed to pull out the victory with a 9-7 tiebreak to end the match.
