Girls tennis: Sequim shuts out Kingston on courts

Sequim High’s girls tennis squad overwhelmed a short-handed Kingston team 7-0 on March 21 to even the team’s season record at 2-2.

Sequim’s Caleigh Thompson topped Kylie Sandtrom 6-0, 6-2, while SHS No. 2 Tiffany Lam win 6-1, 6-2 over Cristina Pruitt.

At No. 1 doubles, Sydney Hegtvedt and Sydney Thomas-Harris didn’t lose a point in shutting out Kingston’s Allena Koch and June Sperry, while SHS’s No. 2 doubles team of Kendall Day and Payton Smithson did the same against the Bucs’ Shya Larson and Elena Mandos.
