Wolves rebound, topple P.T. squad

That didn't last long.

Facing their first losing streak since the 2008 season, Sequim's girls tennis squad found a familiar place: the win column.

The Wolves took all seven matches in an Olympic League victory against the Port Townsend/Chimacum squad in Chimacum on April 16.

Kyla Hall, Serena Okamoto and Jessica DeFilippo each earned singles wins in straight sets. Three

Sequim doubles teams won in straight sets while Ellen Cain and Hillary Smith split sets with Tina Dietz and Megan Gambill of Port Townsend, then won a 10-6 tiebreaker instead of playing a third set.

Earlier in the week,

Sequim (2-3) dropped a pair of matches to their league foes from the east.

On April 13, North Kitsap edged Sequim 4-3, taking three doubles matches and a singles match.

Hall had a straight-sets win against No. 1 Viking Stephanie Bird (6-1, 6-0) while Okamoto vanquished NK's Ashton Asquith 6-2 and 6-4.

Katrina Chan and Stacy Hanson picked up Sequim's other win, a three-set victory against Bryana Bohl and Kelsey Grunigen (3-6, 6-1, 7-6). But the Vikings' depth proved to be too much, as they took the rest of the matches without losing another set.

A day later, Kingston flexed their tennis muscles in a 6-1 win.

Hall came away with Sequim's lone victory, a 6-0, 6-1 win versus Buccaneer Corinne Sudduth (6-0, 6-1).

Chan and Hanson put up a strong fight in the No.1 doubles match, falling 6-4, 7-5 to Olivia Guevera and Maddi Miller.

The victory kept Kingston undefeated at 5-0 in league play.

The Wolves were scheduled to play at Bremerton on April 19 - results were unavailable at press time.

Sequim hosts rival Port Angeles on April 21, then travels to Silverdale for the squad's next two matches: April 23 versus Olympic and April 29 versus Klahowya.
