Wolves top Riders for unbeaten season

With COVID shutting down any chance of realizing how good this team could be, these Wolves will have to settle for an undefeated record and a number or superlatives.

Sequim’s girls tennis squad capped a perfect 10-0 season with a 5-2 win over rival Port Angeles on April 22, and in the process run their consecutive match winning streak to 29, dating back to April 24, 2018.

Still technically the defending state champs — Sequim took the class 2A state title in 2019 and the 2020 season was canceled — the Wolves swept all three singles and matches and the top two doubles matches against the previously unbeaten Roughriders (9-1).

Kalli Wiker topped Port Angeles’ Liberty Lauer 6-0, 6-1 at No. 1 singles while Olivia Preston beat Emma Olson 6-2, 6-4 at No. 2 singles. Melissa Porter added a 6-0, 6-1 win over PA’s Hannah Basden at No. 3 singles.

Sequim’s McKenna and Kendall Hastings unbeaten on the season with a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 1 doubles over Shannon Callahan and Hanna Rietz.

Allie Gale and Amanda Weller edged Eden and Regan Critchfield 6-4, 6-3 at No. 2 doubles.

Port Angeles picked up wins in No. 3 and No. 4 doubles, with Riders Kinnley Brady and Ellie Getchell getting by Mallory Morey and Sydney Sandstrom 6-0, 6-3, and Brielle Keywood and Angelina Sprague handing Sequim’s Jordan Hegtvedt and Lindsay Swanson their first loss of the season as a pair, 6-4 and 7-5.

Wiker (10-0), Porter (5-0), Gale (4-0) and Weller (1-0) each finished unbeaten in singles play this season, as did the Hastings sisters (10-0) and several iterations of Sequim doubles partners.

In all, the Wolves won 65 of 70 singles and doubles matches along the way, going 29-1 in singles matches and 36-4 in doubles matches.

Sequim drops Knights

The Wolves prepped for their big match-up with Port Angeles with a 7-0 sweep of Bremerton at home on April 21, losing just four points along the way.

Kalli Wiker topped Knights’ No. 1 singles player Valencia Tang 6-0, 6-0, while Olivia Preston topped Bremerton’s Zoie Lutinnen 6-0, 6-1 in No. 2 singles. Amanda Weller overpowered Bremerton’s Akilah Austin 6-0, 6-1, in her first singles match of the season.

McKenna and Kendall Hastings stayed unbeaten on the season with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Bremerton’s Jocelyn and Patricia Reyes in no. 1 doubles play, while Sequim teammates Allie Gale and Melissa Porter didn’t lose a point in topping Liza Allen and Connie Quenga.

In No. 3 doubles action, Malory Morey and Sydney Sandstrom topped Bremerton’s Anna Niles and Olivia Schmick 6-1, 6-0, while Sequim’s Jodran Hegtvedt and Lindsay Swanson earned a perfect 6-0, 6-0 score over Gabby Ingleias and Abby Kehm of Bremerton at No. 4 doubles.
