Mountlake Terrace Hawks Jeremy Andsell, Adam Lorraine and Max Leidig are all still in the hunt for state tennis championship berths after the first three days of the rain-plagued 2A District 1 Boys Tennis Tournament being played in Mount Vernon and Bellingham.
Andsell is undefeated in two matches at the district tourney and has reached the singles’ semifinals where he will face Sedro Woolley’s Kyle Beuse on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
Lorraine and Leidig are 2-1 in doubles’ matches; the pair is scheduled to next take on Dane Faris and Michael Bornstein of Sehome on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
The district tournament had been scheduled to conclude on Tuesday but a number of early-round matches were rained out and that has caused the competition schedule to expand further into this week. Tuesday’s matches – weather-permitting – will be contested at Skagit Valley Community College in Mount Vernon; the district tourney will then continue on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21-22, at the Bellingham Tennis Club.
The top two singles’ finishers and the top two doubles’ teams at districts will earn spots at the WIAA 2A State Tennis Championships to be played next May in Seattle.
