With only three days left in the Cascade Conference season, South Whidbey’s tennis players have been trying to wrap up their final games.

The weather has been the big problem.

Currently, the team is ranked fifth in the district with two or so games left to play as of press time Friday.

The Falcons faced Sedro-Woolley Monday afternoon and it was more of a game to get through than any level of serious competition, said Falcons coach Tom Kramer.

The boys walked away with an overall score of 6-1.

“There were really no highlights from the games. Sedro-Wooley has a very young team,” Kramer said. “This is a major rebuilding year for them, so their competition was not at a very high level.”

There was only one match in doubles play that had any kind of competition, and Matt Idso and Sean Hough lost, 7-5, 6-7 and 6-4, during three hours of intense play, Kramer said.

Ben Snow won 6-1, 6-0, as teammate Riley Newman also won, 6-0, 6-1. Jonathan Adams beat his opponent 6-2, 6-1 and Dan Morgan won his matches 6-0, 6-0.

The Falcons also won their games against Anacortes to pull an overall score of 6-1.

Newman won 6-1, 6-2. Morgan, in second singles, won a very close match 7-6, 4-6, 7-5. Snow played third singles, and won 6-0, 6-3. Adams won 7-6, 6-2.

In doubles play, Idso and Hough lost 3-6, 2-6, Potter and Neubauer won 6-0, 6-2 and in a comeback game, Jake Ewing and Adrian Arvizu won 3-6, 6-1, 7-6.

“Third doubles had a good comeback. They were down in the third set and came back to win,” Kramer said.

As of press time, Kramer was looking to a battle with league champs Sehome at home Friday night.

“That is going to be very difficult. They are just solid top to bottom. They have strength in every position and have very few weaknesses,” he said. “If we play our A game, we still might not be able to beat them. It could be a fun match if we did. We’ll just have to see how it goes.”

The district competition is also on Kramer’s mind, however.

“The district playoffs start this coming Tuesday. The season is wrapping up and playoffs are around the corner. Time is very short,” he said.

“By now, we usually have the matches completed but due to weather, we are still trying to get them finished,” he said.
