One girls doubles team heads to the West Central 2A Girls Tennis Tournament this weekend while another pairing looks for one last chance in.

Karen Chan and Melanie Guan, who went 1-2 at districts last year, took second at the Olympic League Tournament on May 13 and 15.

They went 3-1 and lost to Klahowya’s Kate Gallegos and Danielle Frederick in the finals in three sets.

Chan and Guan could face teammates Maggie Christie and Heidi Stallman if the Sequim pair wins a playoff for the fifth seed against South Puget Sound League’s fifth seed on Wednesday.
