State 2A tennis: Dietzman, Wiker take second in doubles

Boys, girls tennis:

Sequim’s Jessica Dietzman and Kalli Wiker lost just one match all season — and it took a championship performance from a team from Sammamish to knock off the SHS duo.

Katrina Kuntz and Nina Vongsaly of Sammamish ended a dominant run by Dietzman and Wiker with a 6-3, 6-3 victory in the 2A girls state tennis doubles championships in Seattle on May 26.

Dietzman and Wiker opened the tourney with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Maya Becerra and Anna Marie Rutherford of Sedro-Woolley.

In the quarterfinals, Dietzman and Wiker dominated once again, ousting Mya Davis and Megan Wilks of W.F. West, 6-2 and 6-1.

In the semifinals, the Sequim duo knocked off Isla Hall and Sydney Leiweke of Sehome, 6-3, 4-6 and 6-0, to set up the finals match.

Dietzman and Wiker finished 18-1 on the season.

Lily Beaulieu and Emily Shaleen of Kingston, Sequim’s Olympic League foes, placed third.

Sequim boys go 1-2

Resurrecting their season after completing regular and district matches in the fall, Sequim’s Thomas Hughes and Blake Wiker won one of three matches at state, coming one match shy of a spot on the medal stand.

Hughes and Wiker opened with a three-set win over Aaron Fillmore and Dixon Gerber of Cheney (5-7, 6-1, 7-5) before dropping a two-set decision to eventual 2A state champions Bryan Le and Marco Sabrino of Liberty (6-1, 6-1) in the quarterfinals.

In the consolation bracket, Hughes and Wiker dropped a tough, three-set decision to Gunnar Nelson and Sam Whipple of Black Hills (4-6, 7-6, 7-6).

In the fall, Hughes and Wiker went 3-2 at the Olympic League final and did even better at the West Central District tourney, winning four of five matches for the district’s fifth seed to state.
