They cruised through their first match against Tenino’s Erin Engebreth and Natalie Hall 6-0, 6-1. In the championship half of the bracket, they faced Okanogan’s Megan Patrick and Shelby Walker and lost 6-2, 6-3.

Facing elimination in a late match on May 30, the first day of the tournament, Weeks and Radisch fought off University Prep’s Madeline Ferry and Mika Inadomi 6-4, 6-3. Playing for fourth place against Cascade’s (Leavenworth) Hailey Hassinger and Katie Whitten, the Falcons fell 6-1, 6-4 and finished in seventh place.
