By EMILY HANSON emi&@masoncounty com Before the boys tennis season be- gan, Shelton head coach John Perry said he thought the doubles teams would determine the success of the Highclimbers. In the first week of play, that's proven to be an accurate statement. In three consecutive contests last week, the Shelton doubles teams won eight of nine matches, result- ing in a Highclimber victory for two of the three contests. The victories began with the first match of the season Sept. 9 at home against Aberdeen. Shelton won 3-2, with all three doubles teams finding success. "I think we played very well for our first match," Perry said. "I was pleased to see the intensity that we played with, and I was happy with our serves." At No. 1 doubles, Danny Draco- bly and Andrew Johnson defeated Connor Weber and Ryan Salan 6-0, 6-0. Troy Krumpols and Jamin Perry won at No. 2 doubles 6-4, 6-2 against John Salan and Chris Haerch. Finally, Kobe Bogh and Cody Si- mon beat Bryan Snyder and Jesse Park 6-0, 6-2 at No. 3 doubles. Perry said the hardest match of the contest was at No. 1 singles. Justin Demattos lost 5-7, 6-1, 6-2 to Cole Edwards. "It was a true three-set battle that included many great points," Perry said. "Both players fought hard and many, many games went to deuce. It was really great tennis to watch." The doubles teams were victori- ous again in Shelton's Sept. 10 3-2 defeat of Tumwater. Demattos and Dracobly defeated Devin Rich and Cole Holebrook 6-2, 1-6, 7-9 (7-5) at No. 1 doubles.

Sumner amassed 359 rushing yards in its 51-14 defeat of Shelton in a nonleague contest in Sumner. ~Sumnes real good this season," Shelton head coach Matt Hinkle said. ~hey capitalized early on us." That early scoring drive started with SumneFs first touchdown just 30 seconds after Shelton senior running back Jake Henry scored on a 2-yard run with 1:59 left in the first quarter. SumneFs Greg Whitehead then intercepted a pass from Shelton senior quarterback Jake Beck and returned it for a touchdown, giving the Spartans a 14-7 lead. "That opened up scoring for them," Hinkle said. He added that, historically, Sumner is a strong program. "They made the quarterfinals last year and we had confidence at the beginning of the game, but lost it, while they're real comfortable where they're at," Hinkle said. Henry led the Highclimber offense with 155 yards on 23 carries. He also scored the team's other touch- down on a 76-yard run with 2:38 remaining in the third quarter. Beck went 8-for-12 for 37 yards. He threw two in- terceptions. "Beck completed more passes than we have com- pleted in a while," Hinkle said. Hinkle said a few other plays stand out. Sophomore Gable Lacy returned the opening kickoff- an onside kick -- 25 yards to give Shelton a short field for its first drive, while Junior Forrest Hunter returned two kickoffs for 91 total yards. "It's coming together," Hinkle said. "Our running game is solid." He said that, although the score doesn't indicate it, the linebackers -- senior Brian Nault and junior Tanner Rhodes -- beth played well on defense, as did the defensive backs. "(Our defense) played well for long stretches, but gave up big plays," Hinkle said. Nault had 12 tackles, three for losses, while Rhodes had six tackles and one sack. The Highclimbers (1-1) begin their 3A Narrows League schedule at 7 p.m. tomorrow at home against Foss at Highclimber Stadium. "Foss likes to throw it a ten and their quarterback has an ability to run," Hinkle said. "Defensively, they put a lot of guys inside to stop the run. Well have to follow assignments and make sure we can get out- side if they do stack up inside."
