The Mountlake Terrace doubles team of Nicki Bouche and Tina Liu earned a ticket to the Class 3A state girls tennis championships next week by qualifying for the doubles’ final at the District 1 3A tourney on Tuesday.

Bouche and Liu will play for the district doubles title on Wednesday, May 20, against the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors team of Myint-Zu Kyaw and Hanna Rehnfeldt, who will also be heading to the state championships in Kennewick May 29-30. The Bouche/Liu–Kyaw/Rehnfeldt match for the District 1 3A doubles championship is a rematch as the two teams met for the Wesco 3A South title a week ago, a match won by Kyaw and Rehnfeldt 6-0, 4-6, 6-2.

In other sports action on Tuesday, the Hawk softball team, seeded No. 8 in the District 1 3A Softball Tournament, gave the No. 1-seeded Everett Seagulls a scare in the first round of tourney play by scoring seven runs in the top of the first inning before the Seagulls fought back for a 9-7 win. Then in a loser-out game the Hawks were eliminated from postseason play with a 6-2 loss to the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors.

The Hawks finish the 2015 season with a 13-11 record, one game better than last year’s mark of 12-12.
