Sequim’s tennis squad started the week off well but dropped a pair to their rivals and slipped to fourth in the Olympic League behind North Kitsap, Klahowya and Port Angeles.

Sequim whitewashed an overmatched Bremerton squad 7-0 on Oct. 2, with Raymond Lam, Liam Payne and Brenton Barnes each picking up singles victories. Thomas Hughes and Blake Wiker dominated in No. 1 doubles play, not losing a game in a 6-0, 6-0 shutout of Knights Evan Frankowski and Nolan Myers.

Sequim’s Damon Little and Tim Porter won in No. 2 doubles play, as did Sam Frymyer and Kevin Meyer in No. 3 doubles and Liam Braaten and Jonathan Heintz in No. 4 doubles.

After the Wolves dropped a 4-3 decision to Klahowya on Oct. 5 — their fifth one-set loss accounting for all five SHS losses to that point — Sequim looked to a kind of double-header against Port Angeles on Oct. 6, completing remaining matches from a postponed Sept. 18 in addition to a regularly scheduled match.

Roughrider Kenny Soule beat Sequim’s Lam 6-2, 6-4 while PA teammate Hayden Woods won his 11th straight singles match by besting Bratten 6-0 and 6-0. Jadon Seibel topped Aaron Jackson 6-3, 6-1 in No. 3 singles play.

Sequim’s doubles duo of Hughes-Wiker topped Port Angeles’ Kyler Tourbin and Brady Nickerson, 6-1 and 6-1, while Sequim teammates Frymyer-Meyer knocked off PA’s Lucan Jarnigan and Milo Whitman 6-3, 0-6, 7-5.

Port Angeles got a clutch win from Hunter Dougherty and Bo Bradow, who edged Little and Porter 2-6, 6-4, 10-7. The Riders rounded out the win with freshmen Landon Seibel and Kameron Noard, who got by Heintz and Brenton Barnes, 6-2 and 6-2.

Sequim was without injured varsity starter Liam Payne.

Results of the Wolves’ Oct. 6 match on Oct. 6 were unavailable at press time.

Looking ahead

Sequim was scheduled to play at North Kitsap on Oct. 9 and at Coupeville Oct. 10. The Wolves host Olympic on Oct. 12 before gearing up for the 2A Olympic League championships set for Oct. 18-19 at the Kitsap Tennis & Athletic Center in Bremerton.
