Falcons trim Granite Falls / Tennis

Collecting its fourth win in five league matches, the South Whidbey High School tennis team tripped visiting Granite Falls 4-1 Tuesday, April 23.

Mary Zisette, a regular in first singles, was not available, so Falcon coach Karyle Kramer shuffled her lineup, which came away with the win.

South Whidbey’s singles players Ashley Ricketts and Oliana Stange each displayed “impressive mental strength” in pulling out tight three-set wins, according to Kramer.

Next up for the Falcons (4-1, 4-4) is a visit from Coupeville (0-3, 0-3) at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25.

Singles: 1, Ashley Ricketts won 6-4, 4-6, 7-6; 2, Oliana Stange won 6-2, 5-7, 6-4.

Doubles: 1, Farriss Jokinen/Ainsley Nelson lost 6-3, 6-3; 2, Alison Papritz/Elizabeth Simmons won 6-0, 6-3; 3, Chloe Loehr/McKenna Kelley won 6-3, 6-3.
