[5/16/19] District Tennis Results
All of the 1A and B tennis teams in north central Washington met at Harmony Meadows Wednesday for Day 1 of the District 6 Tennis Tournament, which is the qualifier for next week’s state tournament. The tournament got off to an early start (noon rather than 3pm) due to the threat of late afternoon rain.
From this tournament, the top three girls and top four boys will move on to the state tournament. Each entrant played once and will play two or three times on Saturday at the North Cascades Athletic Club in Omak beginning at 10am.
Chelan had about as good a day as you can hope for, winning all four matches and sending all four entries to the Saturday semifinals.
Emma McLaren entered as the #1 girls singles seed from the CTL, pitting her against the #4 seed from the NCW B-league Savannah Hobrecht of Lake Roosevelt. Emma came away with a 6-2, 6-3 victory, and will face Molly Wiser of Cascade in the semifinals on Saturday, which is a rematch of the CTL tourney semifinal from last weekend.
Wyatt Habich was also CTL champion in boys singles, so he opened up against #4 seed Connor Hardesty of Tonasket. Connor was a tough opponent, and it took all that Wyatt had in the tank to sneak by Hardesty 7-5, 6-4. Habich will face Kane Andruss of Cashmere on Saturday in the semifinal.
Tobin Wier is the #2 seed in boys singles coming out of the CTL, and faced Nicholas Fitzmaurice of Liberty Bell today. Tobin had a dominant opening set, but had to work hard to get by Fitzmaurice in the second set 6-2, 7-6(2). That puts Tobin in the other boys semifinal on Saturday morning vs state tourney veteran Caeleb Hardesty of Tonasket.
The Chelan doubles team of Abby Martin and Bella Gatzemeier are the #3 seed from the CTL, and battled Tarissa and Raven Clark of Lake Roosevelt, which was a rematch from the final week of the regular season. Abby and Bella coasted to victory 6-0, 6-2, and will face the Kert sisters of Cashmere in a rematch of their CTL semifinal last week.
Saturday’s path to a state: Win the semifinal and their ticket is punched, or lose the semifinal and have to fight back through the consolation bracket.
