Sequim players star in Kent tourney's second weekend


The sun wasn't the only thing shining these last two weekends in Port Angeles.

The Saundra Kent Memorial Tennis Tournament got under way at Erickson Park courts Aug. 3-5, with singles and men's senior doubles action.

Three Sequim players took home championships on Sunday afternoon, including Doug Hastings in men's 5.0 singles, Byron Boots in men's 4.5 singles and Tricia Stratton in women's 3.5 singles.

Other winners included Port Angeles' Kendall Wake in men's 3.5 singles, Dean Ratzman of San Diego in men's 50-plus singles, and Port Angeles duo Randy Johnson and Dennis Yakovich in senior doubles.

Sequim players continued a strong showing the next weekend, Aug. 11-12, in the weekend's doubles divisions.

Douglas Hastings and Mark Textor won the single-match, men's 9.0 doubles crown while mother-daughter duo Tricia and Staci Stratton won the women's 8.0 championship.
