First-year player? No problem.
Sequim High Garrett Little dominated during the regular season and capped off his freshman season undefeated with a 4-0 run and league title through the Olympic League tourney last week at Central Kitsap.
SHS teammates Henry Hughes and Dustan Koch joined Little with a fifth place finish in the doubles portion of the league tourney.
Little didn’t lose a set in the tourney — or the season, for that matter — on his way to the league title. He opened with a 6-0, 6-0 rout of Olympic’s Christopher Posis and a 6-1, 6-1 win over North Kitsap’s Jason Hart. In the semifinals, Little made quick work of Port Angeles’ Reef Gelder (6-2, 6-1) before topping Bainbridge’s Brogan Rice 6-3 and 6-3 in the league final.
In doubles action, Hughes and Koch won their first two matches, topping East Jefferson’s Roman Humphrey and Ben Martin 6-1, 6-1 and Kingston’s Eli Guedea and Garret McDaniel, 6-4 and 6-3, before falling to Bainbridge’s Aidan McLennan and Sean Westerhout. Hughes and Koch fell to Klahowya’s Evan Cole and Drew Kraft before topping Kingston’s Guedea and McDaniel for a second time in the fifth/sixth place match.
Sequim’s Connor Bear went 1-2 in singles play, as did doubles teammates Zach McCracken and Jackson Van De Wege.
