At Glacier Peak and Skagit College courts 10-21-2016
Shorewood's Jack Bong and Andrew Counter defeated their Ferndale opponents in straight sets to win the WesCo South Doubles championship and qualify for the District 1 tournament.
Junior Gunnar Thortenson placed second in singles and freshman Steven Lin placed 4th in singles. Both qualified for next week's District 1 tournament. Thorstenson lost a tough match versus his Shorecrest opponent and Lin lost a close match to his Squalicum opponent.
The T-Bird doubles team of Joseph Jang and Peter Smith, still playing in the tournament on Monday October 24, need one more win to qualify for District 1 and have a chance to place 3rd or 4th.
The District 1 tournament is played next October 25 and 26 at Arlington High School starting at 1pm.
The top three placers in singles and doubles will qualify for next May's 2017 WIAA State Tournament at Kamiakin High School in Kennewick, Washington.
