Newman wins in tennis in Bellingham battle

South Whidbey notches wins in singles play, but falls in doubles action.

South Whidbey’s Lindsey Newman beat Bellingham’s leading singles player Maddy Pierce 6-0, 6-1 at home Wednesday.

Also for the Falcons, Natalie Wheeler won 6-2, 6-1, Jen Gemkow lost 3-6, 2-6 and Maya Hough lost 1-6, 4-6.

All three doubles matches were taken by the girls from Bellingham as Victoria Comfort and Nichole Zalewski lost 4-6, 3-6, Julia Iversen and Shannon Craig lost 2-6, 1-6 and Nicole Steward and Noelle Metz lost 1-6 and 4-6.

“There is a reason that Bellingham is undefeated this season,” said Falcon coach Tom Kramer. “They are a very good team, well coached and they concentrate well individually.”

District championships are May 8-10 in Sehome. After 20 years in Yakima, tennis state finals will be held this year in Seattle; May 23-24 at the Nordstrom Center at the University of Washington.
