Wa-Hi girls tennis team handles Pasco, Kamiakin

The Blue Devils shut out the Lions before taking a 5-2 tennis victory from the Braves in a two-match road trip Saturday.


KENNEWICK - Wa-Hi's girls tennis team started its trip to the Tri-Cities with a 7-0 shutout of Pasco Saturday before heading to Kamaikin to down the Braves, 5-2.

"The girls played well today," Blue Devils coach Keven Peck said. "In the morning match with Pasco, the girls did a nice job of taking care of business. The singles and doubles players jumped on their opponents early and never let up.

"We traditionally have a close match with Kamiakin, but with our No. 1 and No. 2 doubles teams (Kristine Leier and Chantell Desjarlias, and Rosa Tobin and Allison Mehn) and our No. 3 and No. 4 singles players (Mary Felt and Rachel Schueller) getting us four points out of the gate, all that was left for the remaining players was to relax and play tennis," he said. "Tianna Cummings' win at No. 2 singles added a fifth point to our total and assured us the greatest margin of victory over Kamiakin in the Pascot six years."

Wa-Hi is now 3-0 on the season, and hosts Chiawana Tuesday.

"Though the 3-0 start is great for our confidence, there is still a lot of work to be done," Peck said. "I know these girls, they will come to the courts on Monday for business as usual."
