The Shoreline School District will be well represented next May when the Boys Tennis Finals are held in Kennewick.

The Shorewood team finished a dream season, winning the Northwest District One 3A Tournament. The T-Birds went undefeated (10-0) in league matches, 15-1 overall. The sole blemish on their mark was a loss to undefeated (16-0) 4A District Champion Jackson HS.

SW’s Gunnar Thorstenson claimed the District Singles Championship, defeating Colin Weller from Squalicum in straight sets, 6-4, 6-2. Thorstenson will go into State a number one seed.

Also winning the District championship and advancing to state for the T-Birds as a number one seed is their doubles team of Andrew Counter and Steven Lin.

Shorecrest will be represented next May, as well.

The Shorecrest team finished second in the District Tournament. Faiz Khan took third place in singles, and their doubles team of Ben Silber and Reed Tangeman also finished third in Districts, qualifying all of them for the State Finals in May.

Arnie Moreno is the Shorewood coach. Rob Mann coaches the Scots.
