There wasn’t much separating Sequim’s boys tennis squad from a sweep of three Olympic League foes last week.

As it turns out, coming out on the short end of tiebreakers in several matches led the Wolves to a 1-2 week.

Sequim (2-2) started the week with a 4-3 win against 1A Coupeville on Sept. 11. Raymond Lam won a tough, three-set match in No. 1 doubles play over Coupeville’s Pedro Gamarra while Liam Payne won in straight sets (6-4, 6-3) over Jakobi Baumann.

Coupeville’s Joey Lippo and William Nelson edged Sequim’s top doubles team of Blake Wiker and Thomas Hughes (6-2, 5-7, 6-4) but Sequim came back to win in No. 2 doubles (Tim Porter/Damon Little) and No. 4 doubles (Liam Braaten/Aaron Jackson).

On Sept. 13, the Wolves fell at Bremerton, with both Payne and the doubles pair Braaten/Jackson falling in tiebreakers. Lam picked up a win in No. 1 singles, as did Wiker and Hughes in doubles play, topping the Knights’ Fisher Bergman and Ian Stuart (6-3, 6-0). Porter and Little added a win in No. 2 doubles play, winning 6-1, 6-1 over Bremerton’s Brett Blankenship and Hayden Garrett.

A day later Sequim dropped a second consecutive road match, falling 4-3 to Kingston. The Wolves fell in all three singles matches but nearly swept in doubles play. The doubles teams of Porter/Little, Lam/Payne and Barnes/Meyer each won in straight sets, but the Buccaneers’ top duo Dawson Clark and Etha Sax edged Wiker and Hughes in three sets, 7-6 (7-0), 2-6, 6-1.

Looking ahead

Sequim was slated to play Port Angeles Sept. 18 — results were not available at press time.

The Wolves are at Klahowya Sept. 20. They host Chimacum on Sept. 21, North Kitsap on Sept. 25 and Kingston on Sept. 27.
