Girls Tennis: One SHS doubles team to state, another vies for districts


One girls doubles team heads to the West Central 2A Girls Tennis Tournament this weekend while another pairing looks for one last chance in.

Karen Chan and Melanie Guan, who went 1-2 at districts last year, took second at the Olympic League Tournament on May 13 and 15.

They went 3-1 and lost to Klahowya’s Kate Gallegos and Danielle Frederick in the finals in three sets.

Chan and Guan could face teammates Maggie Christie and Heidi Stallman if the Sequim pair wins a playoff for the fifth seed against South Puget Sound League’s fifth seed on Wednesday.

Coach Justine Wagner said Christie and Stallman came back from an early loss to win their remaining matches for a shot at the fifth seed playoff.

The top four singles and doubles advance to the district tournament May 23-24 at the Bremerton Tennis & Athletic Club. No Sequim singles players advanced to districts.

Sequim players vie for a shot at the 2A State Tennis Championships May 30-31 in the Nordstrom Tennis Center in Seattle.

If the girls earn state spots, they’ll join doubles team Brandon Payne and Matthew Richards who earned the fourth seed into the boys 2A state finals. They went went 4-1 at districts on Nov. 1-2 and Nov. 4. They represent the first Sequim boys to play tennis at state since the 2010-2011 season.
