Falcons cruise by Wolves / Tennis

Winning every match in straight sets, the South Whidbey High School tennis team blanked Coupeville 5-0 Thursday, April 25.

The Falcons lifted their North Sound Conference record to 5-1 (5-4 overall), while the Wolves remain winless in four matches.

“Really solid play for our team, as the scores indicate,” coach Karyle Kramer said. “Ashley (Ricketts) continues her win streak at first singles; McKenna (Kelley) stepped up and played her best match of the season at second singles.

“Doubles as well — just all-around good play.”

The Falcon junior varsity was just as dominate, winning all seven matches.

The match was the final home contest for the Falcons, and South Whidbey honored its seniors: Erin Brewer, Ainsley Nelson, Carli Newman, Farriss Jokinen, Jessie Johnson, Elizabeth Simmons and Mary Zisette.

The Falcons wrap up the regular season next week with two road matches. They go to King’s at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, and to Friday Harbor at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 1.
