Two talented tennis teams, Edmonds-Woodway and Shorewood, battled it out for an early season matchup at Shorewood Courts on Monday, September 13, 2021. 

The match pitted two undefeated teams that had early major wins. 

The Warriors had a rare victory over WesCo 4A powerhouse Jackson, defeating them 4-3. 

Shorewood tangled with KingCo 4A contender North Creek and won a razor thin match 4-3. 

The tennis was high level and extremely competitive for every match. 

The Warriors dominated in singles but the T-Birds swept in doubles. It came down to number three singles, senior captain David Lin, to be the deciding match. Lin won a tough first set then his opponent met the challenge to tie the match at one set each to set up the final deciding set.

Lin had to regroup and jumped out to a 4-1 lead. His Warrior opponent did not give up and came back to make it a 4-4 match.

Lin responded by holding his serve and then winning long rallies to win 6-4. Both players gave it their best during this long two hour match. 
The T-Birds clinched the match and won 4-3. The win moved them into first place in WesCo South and improved the Shorewood record to 4-0.

Coach Moreno knew his team was talented enough to be in every match, including against powerhouse Edmonds-Woodway.
