At the WesCo South league championship tournament, held at Arlington High School October 29-30, 2019, the Shorewood tennis team was represented by Steven Lin and doubles team, Derick Han and Nico Christianson. Lin lost his first round match versus an opponent from Arlington that had many long rallys.

Steven Lin placed third at District Tournament
and qualified for the State tournament

He came back and won his next match against an Oak Harbor opponent to set up a match that would earn the winner a spot at the WIAA state tournament. Lin's next opponent was a Squalicum player who had placed 7th at state the year before. Knowing that he had a great opponent and huge challenge, Lin played his best match of the season, according to his Coach Arnie Moreno. 

He remained focused and under control the whole match and won 6-3, 6-0. The T-Bird team senior co-captain then won his match for third place 6-3, 6-3 over his Snohomish opponent. Lin will compete at the state tournament next May, at the Tri-City Court Club in Kennewick, as the District 1 number 3 seed.

Placing 6th were Nico Christianson and Derick Han, who started the tournament with an upset victory in the first round over WesCo North doubles champs from Oak Harbor. The T-Birds doubles team, Christianson and Han, played great tennis and had an outstanding season.

All three players helped Shorewood win this seasons 2019-20 Wesco South league championship. Congratulations T-Birds on their outstanding play and great sportsmanship!

Correction: The original photo caption said that all three players would go to state. Only singles player Steven Lin qualified.
