Boys tennis: Sequim nets two more league victories

Sequim’s tennis squad nearly earned a sweep last week, coming within a set of knocking off undefeated, league-leading North Kitsap on Sept. 25.

The Vikings swept all three singles matches while the Wolves took the top three doubles events.

Sequim’s Thomas Hughes and Blake Wiker earned a 7-5, 6-3 win in No. 1 doubles play against NK’s Aidan Adams and Justus Jagodzinske, while SHS’s Damon Little and Tim Porter earned a 6-4, 6-2 win over Vikings Logan Chinlewski and Ryan Singleton in no. 2 doubles play.

Raymond Lam and Liam Payne also won in straight sets in No. 3 doubles play, topping Max Larsen and Ryland Schmidt 6-4, 6-3.

In the rubber match in No. 4 doubles action, Sequim’s Sam Frymyer and Kevin Meyer won the second set but fell in three to NK’s Zach Meek and Isaac Richardson (6-4, 3-6, 6-4).

Textor named the doubles duo of Little and Porter as players of the match.

Sequim rebounded with a 4-3 win of its own, dropping all three singles matches but making up for it with four doubles wins to knock off Kingston 4-3 on Sept. 27.

Hughes and Wiker led the way with a three-set win over Buccaneers Dawson Clark and Ethan Sax (6-2, 3-6, 6-2).

Payne and Porter joined forces for the first time this season to top Kingston’s Preston Gunnell and Gianni Nguyen in straight sets (6-1, 6-1).

In the closest match, Meyer and Brenton Barnes won a second set tiebreaker and went on to defeat Kingston’s Tyler Bates and Eli Guedea, 5-7, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3.

Liam Braaten and Jonathan Heintz added a win in No. 4 doubles play.

Damon little took Kingston’s No. 2 singles player Ethan Griffin to a third set before falling.

Sequim added a 6-1 win at North Mason on Sept. 28; details were not available.
