Two Wolves tennis players are heading to state while another waits for a spot to open this weekend.
Junior Karen Chan and senior Cheyenne Sokkappa earned the No. 4 seed from the West Central Districts on May 22-23 in Bremerton to the 2A girls state tennis doubles championships.
They’ll open against Simone Hall and Taylor Harris of Sehome at the Nordstrom Tennis Center on May 29-30.
Up to the Olympic League Championship, Chan was paired with senior Hannah Gauthun all season. Gauthun instead played in singles at districts and earned seventh and the first alternate spot to state.
Sokkappa primarily played singles all season.
At districts, Chan and Sokkappa won their first two matches 6-4, 7-5, 6-2 and 6-1 before losing to second-place finishers Sarah Hamal and Chelsea Rosebrook of Kingston in three close sets 6-4, 6-7 and 7-6. The Sequim pair lost to Megan Cragg and Sarah Holt of North Kitsap 6-0 and 7-5 to take fourth place.
Gauthun opened with a three-set win 3-6, 6-1 and 6-3 but lost her next match 7-5 and 6-2 to Sharon Wuthrich of Bremerton, who finished second overall. In the consolation, Gauthun won 7-5 and 6-0 over Jessica Jou of Sammamish but lost to Jyotsna Kuramkote of Liberty 2-6, 6-1 and 6-3, who took sixth.
For the determining alternate spots, Gauthun won 6-4 and 6-3 over Jacqueline Kemp of Highline.
