Boys tennis: Sequim sweeps Kingston, falls to tough Bainbridge team

A tough 3A Bainbridge team exacted a bit of revenge for an early-season loss with a 4-3 win over host Sequim on Oct. 11, needing a third-set tiebreaker at No. 3 doubles to top the young Wolves.

Sequim (7-3) saw singles players Garrett Little and Koda Robinson stay unbeaten on the season. Little, at No. 1 singles, topped Spartan ace Jett peters 7-6 (10-8), 6-4, while Robinson bested Rafferty Rosencrans 6-1, 6-1 at No. 3 singles.

Sequim also got a win at No. 2 doubles, as Kaiden Jones and Espn Judd topped Bainbridge’s Reed Grandt and Dutch Sunshine 6-4 and 6-3.

The Spartans’ Liv Hensley and Brodie Laurance needed three sets to top Sequim’s Adrian Brown and William Hughes at No. 3 doubles (6-3,4-6, 7-5).

Judd earned Sequim coach Mark Textor’s player of the match.

On Oct. 7, Sequim had an easier time with Kingston in a 7-0 sweep. Little, Bear and Robinson each won their singles matches by 6-0, 6-0 counts, as did Jones and Judd at No. 2 doubles. Henry Hughes and Jack Van De Wege, Sequim’s top doubles duo, had a tougher time but managed to earn a 5-7, 6-4, 10-6 win over Buccaneers Ryan Gueden and Garrett McDaniel.
