The weather was hot, but the competition on Sequim High School’s tennis courts might have been even hotter.

A total of 44 two-person teams played in nine events at the annual Sequim Doubles Tournament last weekend, with either all-Sequim or Sequim-Port Angeles pairs taking eight of those titles.

Sequim couple Allison and Doug Hastings defended their Mixed 4.0 title with a 6-0, 7-5 win against former SHS stars Kyle McKenzie and Justine Textor, then won titles in their respective gender classifications: Allison paired with Beverly Hoffman to top Cheryl Hainje (Lacey) and Brenda Lash (Olympia) in the women’s 4.0 finals, while Doug teamed with David Godfrey of Port Angeles to survive two, three-set matches, including a tiebreaking thriller against Jon Irvine (Redmond) and Jorge Irvine (Portland, Ore.) in the men’s 4.0 division round robin.

Other winners include Sequim’s David Gibbs and Jim Irvine, Men’s 60 division; Carl Strunk (Port Angeles) and Andrew Gunstone (Sequim), Men’s 3.0 division; Sequim’s Darryl Fling and Stu Sherman, Men’s 3.5 division; Sequim’s Jeff Brown and Beverly Hoffman, mixed 3.5 division; Sequim’s Terry Candrian and Brenda Landstrom, Women’s 3.5 division; and Bainbridge Island duo Mary Ann Campbell and Debra Harper — the tourney’s only out-of-town champs — who took the Women’s 3.0 division.

Laurel Cripe of Peninsula Tennis Club said the event grew 40 percent over matches played in 2007.
