Shorecrest takes 6-0 tennis record, Shorewood 5-1 into home matches

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

The Shorecrest boys’ tennis team takes a 6-0 overall record and 3-0 Western Conference 3A record into home matches Wednesday and Thursday.

Shorewood meanwhile, takes a 5-1 record (2-1 Wesco 3A) into a Thursday home match.

Shorecrest hosts Mountlake Terrace at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, and Marysville-Pilchuck at 3:30 Thursday, both at Kellogg Middle School. The Shorecrest junior varsity plays at Mountlake Terrace Wednesday at 3:30.

Shorewood plays host to Oak Harbor Thursday at 3:30 p.m. at Shoreview Park, with junior varsity teams from the two schools playing at the same time at Oak Harbor. The Thunderbirds play host to Meadowdale Friday in a match postponed from Monday with junior varsity teams playing at the same time at Meadowdale.

Shorecrest extended its season record to 6-0 with wins over Glacier Peak, Shorewood and Meadowdale last week despite being hampered early on by a handful of injuries.

The Scots battled weather threats Tuesday before the singles lineup blew through Glacier Peak's roster, with victories from Nishaant Limaye, Andrew Copsey, Chris Sato and Daniel Wacker. Juniors Nick North and Nick Shively capped the 5-2 team victory with their own two-set doubles win.

Large cross-town crowds turned out Wednesday when the Scots grabbed a 5-2 team win over Shorewood. Again, Shorecrest's singles proved to be too much to handle, as they swept through the Thunderbirds' lineup. A 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 battle featuring Emahd Khan and Brady Dixon at No. 2 doubles further iced the match success.

Wrapping up the week, Shorecrest pummeled Meadowdale, 7-0, paced by a poised No. 1 singles victory by Nishaant Limaye. The junior co-captain won 6-4, 6-1 over 2012 Wesco 3A singles champ Nick Ekern. With injuries healing, the sophomore power-pack of Khan and newcomer Brandon Mak had a decisive 6-0, 6-3 victory at No. 1 doubles.

Shorewood defeated Mountlake Terrace 7-0 at home Tuesday.
