The Mountlake Terrace girls tennis squad began a stretch of six matches in seven days on Wednesday hoping to grab their first Wesco 3A team victory of the season; that first team win will have to wait as the Hawks fell to the visiting Lynnwood 4-3 at Mountlake Terrace High School.
Mountlake Terrace’s top three singles’ players won their matches, but the Royals were able to pick up wins in the No. 4 singles match and all three doubles clashes to earn the team victory.
The Hawks continue their regular season schedule on Thursday at home against Shorewood; Lynnwood will hit the road to face the Meadowdale Mavericks.
