BLHS TENNIS: Panthers defeat Gators in league
The Bonney Lake High boys tennis team is off to a 1-1 start following a Friday victory over Decatur.
The Panthers battled to a 3-2 win over the Gators on the strength of their doubles play, with all three of the duos scoring wins.
After losing his top doubles team from last season, coach Damon DeLapp was a bit concerned, but the returning team of Zach Volin and Devin Crump led the way for the Panthers with a 6-3, 6-3 win over David Caicedo and Christian Scagnamiglio.
In No. 2 doubles, Sam Davidson and Spencer Workman came back from a first set loss to beat Peter An and Josh Park 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 6-3 while the third doubles team of Andrew Allen and Nathan Scott bested Cameron Keller and Robert Thomas 6-4, 6-3.
In singles play, Andrew Leaf fell to Darrell Belvin 3-6, 3-6 and Taylor Pringle dropped his match to Abisohok Murali 2-6, 2-6.
Looking ahead to the season, DeLapp said in an e-mail he has a lot of good returning players with some good incoming freshman as well.
“I have a deep team with a lot of quality players,” DeLapp said. “It will be fun as the season progresses to see which pairs of doubles team gels and makes it to the postseason tournament.”
The season continues today, Wednesday, with a 3:30 p.m. match at home against Enumclaw.
