Wolves net wins versus Knights, Eagles

Let the new streak begin.

After rival Port Angeles ended a three-year-plus winning streak on April 10,

Sequim rebounded with a pair of wins against league foes — barely.

On April 15, the Bremerton Knights won all three singles matches but Sequim swept the doubles matches, giving the Wolves their second 4-3 win against Bremerton this season.

Kyla Hall and Blaire Maloney battled from down a set and down in the second set to topple Bremerton’s top doubles squad, 4-6, 7-5 and 6-3, while Sequim teammates Caihley Baker and Diana Earl went three sets to beat Bremerton’s No. 2 squad, 6-1, 6-7 and 7-5.

Mary Cherrett and Kali Wake whitewashed Brem-erton’s No. 3 squad while Kari Hankins and Jaysa Hill won in straight sets as well in the No. 4 doubles match.

Two days later, the Wolves stopped Klahowya 5-2, needing solid performances by their top singles player and doubles teams.

Angela Richards stopped Klahowya’s Jessica Wilson 7-5 and 6-2 for Sequim’s lone singles win, while Hall and Maloney went to three sets again to beat Klahowya’s Misty Noster and Katie Stephens (6-4, 2-6, 6-2).

Baker and Earl improved to 4-0 as a doubles duo with a straight-set win against Nicole Lewandowski and Melody Noster (6-3, 6-1). Cherrett Wake didn’t give up a game in topping Klahowya’s No. 3 squad while Hankins and Hill added a win in the fourth and final doubles spot.

An April 15 home date with Peninsula — a make-up match from an earlier match scheduled in April — was postponed thanks to inclement weather. That’s hardly something new for the Wolves: they’ve seen four postponements in the first six scheduled matches this season.

The Wolves were scheduled to host Kingston April 21 — results were unavailable at press time. Sequim travels to Belfair to battle North Mason April 23 and hosts the Olympic Trojans April 25.
