“I think it was a great day for tennis. Ryan Mack, I’m proud of the four-year letter winner. In his final home match, he finished strong against a tough opponent in Luke Walters. He had a great career and season, it’s been a pleasure working with him,” Centralia coach Keith Hopkins said. “Landon Kaut was fun to watch. Landon continued to fight, losing the first set and hanging on. I was pleased with how he kept battling and came out on top against a worthy opponent in Gabe (Cuestas). It’s always fun to beat your cross town rival and know that it can’t always be that way, congrats to them.”
W.F. West will makeup a match against Aberdeen on Friday in Chehalis. Centralia will be back on the court on Monday, hosting the first day of the sub-district tournament in Borst Park.
