W.F. West’s Jacob Blondahl and Christian Iverson defeated Shane Kalb and Dexter Knutson-Kller in No. 3 doubles, 6-3, 6-4.
“I liked how Luke battled back after he lost the first set. Gabe got down in the second set, we talked about things he needed to do a little better in the second set and he was doing that. He needed to be a little more aggressive,” W.F. West coach Jack State said. “Jacob and Christian did a nice job of staying focused and we talked about after they won the first set about not having a let down.”
W.F. West hosts Tumwater on Monday in an EvCo matchup.
