Friday’s Boys Tennis: Bearcats Take Down Tigers in Swamp Cup Tennis
By The Chronicle
W.F. West swept the singles matches and earned a lone victory in doubles to win 4-2 over Centralia in an Evergreen 2A Conference boys tennis match in Chehalis on Friday.
In No. 1 singles, Andrew Pak defeated Brandon Willcerson in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2. Luke Walters earned a win at No. 2 doubles over Centralia’s Jackson Buzzard, 6-0, 6-1.
“Luke has been playing well all year. It was a pretty easy win, the big thing about Luke is he’s not doing things to beat himself,” W.F. West coach Jack State said. “As soon as you give him something to be more aggressive with, he’ll take it. I’m really happy with the way he’s playing.”
Gabe Cuestas completed the singles sweep for W.F. West, defeating Brandon Yeung 6-1, 6-1.
In doubles, Centralia’s Ben Corwin and Ryan Mack prevailed over Cade Cameron and Joseph Chung, 6-3, 6-4. Johan Lopez and Landon Kaut defeated W.F. West’s Colin Slattery and Caleb Walters in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-2).
The Bearcats picked up a win in No. 3 doubles, with Jacob Blomdahl and Chrisitan Iverson taking down Sawyer Kassel and McKiernan Jones without losing a game, 6-0, 6-0.
“Jacob and Christian, they are getting better and better every time they go out,” State said. “They are undefeated at the third doubles.”
W.F. West (10-1, 7-0) travels to Aberdeen on Monday while Centralia (5-4, 4-3) hosts Tumwater on Monday in an EvCo match.
