The Shorewood boys tennis team completed the final week of their tennis season with three straight wins. They started the week with Jackson High School, one of the toughest Wesco 4A tennis teams. The T-Birds won with a convincing 5-2 score. Junior Murray Falkin, senior co-captain David Lin and junior Nathan Hagemeier led the victory by winning three of four singles matches.

The Thunderbirds defeated conference opponent Meadowdale, 6-1 on Tuesday with consistent shots and strong net game.

Shorewood hosted another powerhouse team from Wesco 4A, Glacier Peak high school, and won 6-1. Victories at number 1 singles and doubles secured the win. Freshman JD Drake was tenacious and determined in his match. He was able to hit crucial winning shots under intense pressure from a very good Glacier Peak opponent. 

The number 1 doubles team of Farley and Gettmann continued to battle some of the best teams in the league. They raised their level of play in the third set with aggressive shot making and won their match 6-1.

The T-Birds finished their season with a 6-2 Wesco South record and 12-2 overall record to be one of the top teams in Wesco.
Shorewood singles players Drake and Falkin, doubles teams Farley / Gettmann and Borgida / Lin, will all play in the Wesco South Division tournament October 19th and 20th at Arlington high school. 

Tournament matches start at 1pm. The top four placers move on to play in the District 1 tournament for a chance to secure one of four spots for the WIAA 3A State Tournament.
