Shorecrest's Reed Tangeman and Ben Silber are the District 3A Tennis Doubles Champions and remain undefeated in the postseason.

They easily breezed through the first two rounds of the district tournament on the first day taking down teams from Marysville-Pilchuck and Edmonds-Woodway on a warm sunny day.

On the second day of the tournament, they had to prepare for battle in the finals, taking on a strong team from Shorewood.

The momentum shifted back and forth between the two teams and it was unclear who was going to win. Shorecrest got broken on their first two service games to go down 0-3. Luckily they found a way to break back and eventually take the first set 6-4.

Shorewood took control of the second set with high quality groundstroke play and won it 7-5 and carried the positive momentum into the beginning of the third set.

However, Tangeman’s cat-like reflexes at the net and Silber’s consistent and punishing returns helped Shorecrest to win the 3rd set and the match.

They will compete in the State Tournament on May 24th – 25th at Kamiakin High School in Kennewick Washington.
