The Falcons swept the Friday Harbor Wolverines 5-0. Then a reconfigured Falcon lineup lost 3-2 to the Wolves. South Whidbey head coach Karyle Kramer stated at the start of the season that her goal was to diversify the Falcon players’ skills and talents between singles and doubles and she would change the lineup regularly. The loss to the Wolves came only four days after the Falcons swept the match 5-0.

South Whidbey also lost a home match Saturday against University Prep (Seattle), 5-2. Charley Stelling, a sophomore, won the second singles match 6-1, 6-2, and third doubles team Kyle Simchuk and Chase Collins, both seniors, won 6-3, 6-2.
