Snohomish, WesCo North Champions, traveled to meet the WesCo South league Champions, Shorewood, on Wednesday, May 1, 2024. 

Snohomish had a record of 13-2 and Shorewood’s record was 13-0, before the match. Shorewood won the match 6-1 to win the battle of the champions.

Led by the top two Shorewood singles, junior Rylie Gettmann and senior Emily Lin and number 1 doubles team juniors Mari Brittle and Alex Mignogna, the team won three of four singles and swept all three doubles.

The match of the day was the matchup of Brittle and Mignogna with the Snohomish team of Hannah Wells and Mak Dauer, at number one doubles. 

The Shorewood team lost the first set 6-7 ( 3-7 ). Brittle and Mignogna bounced back and outplayed the Snohomish team to take the next two sets. The match was decided by great volleying at the net, consistent groundstrokes, and precision serving by Brittle and Mignogna.
