Journal photo by Emily Hanson Kingston opponent while 8 in Belfair. e aim By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun com The North Mason boys tennis team hasn't won a match this season, but it's not for lack of trying, head coach Brian Barker said. "I think we're still trying, but we're skill-poor," Barker said Oct. 8 affmr Kingston defeated the Bulldogs 6-1. 'We are the smallest 2A school in the 2A Olympic League," Barker con- tinued. "We are competitive with the 1A teams ... but the 2A teams are just too deep for us." The upside of this season has come from No. 1 singles player Beau Eddy. Eddy has a 9-4 record at r two of his four matches last week. North Mason lost 7-0 to Sequim on Oct. 6, then 7-0 to Olympic on Oct. 7, 6-1 to Kingston on Oct. 8 and 6-1 to Port Angeles on Friday. Eddy won 6-2, 6-2 against Kingston and against Port Angeles. "Beau is the fourth best player in the league," Barker said. "That's a good seed- ing for him (into the league tournament)." He said he believes Eddy has a bit of a shot at making it to the 2A WIAA State Boys Tennis Championship next spring. "The good news is that our sopho- mores are getting some wins," Barker continued. "Cole Tilton and Tanner Hall have a couple of good doubles wins against Klahowya and Coupeville." Steven Settlemeir also earned a vic- tory against Coupeville as part of a No. 1 doubles team. "He played a very competitive match against Olympic," Barker said of Settle- meir. Barker said a major challenge for the team is that none of the boys play year-round, but they compete against teams that do. "We're starting from square one," he said. "It's really difficult to win that way. You can't make up years in a month." The Bulldogs (0-11) were scheduled to play their finalregular season match yesterday, after deadline. The 2A Olympic League Champion- ship begins Wednesday at North Kit- sap High School and continues the next day. t .I Higbdimbers enterpostsea on in third p/ace , By EMILY HANSON emily@masoncoun c )m With a loss to (3api- tal, the Shelton boys J tennis team finished its 3A Narrows League schedule in third l lace last week.

Justin Dem~ tos earned Shelton's lone victory, beating Ca] iron Masters 6-3, 6-2. "With the win, Jus- tin solidified his spot as one of the top two singles players in the league," Perry said. Capital's No. 1 !dou- bles team included a returning state qUali- fier. At No. 1 doubles, Danny Dracobly and Troy Krumpols lost 6-1, 6-1 to Travis Mill- er and Ranjan Sha- rangpani. "I thought Danny and Troy did a good job competing at that spot and the match was I closer than the 6-1, 6-1 score, with many games going to deuce," Perry said. The loss came af- ter the Highclimbers defeated two other league opponents last week. On Oct. 6, Shelton beat Lincoln 4-1 in Ta- coma. "Lincoln is a very young team," Perry said. "I thought we played well against them, as there is always a danger of playing down to a less experienced opponent, but we didn't do that, which was nice." Dracobly defeated Clarence Querubin 6-4, 6-1 at No. 1 sin- gles, while Demat- tos and Jamie Perry, at No. 1 doubles, won 6-2, 6-0 against Danny Cabrerd and Leonal Acosta.

Finally, at No. 3 dou- bles, Mark Vernon and Ethan Pentony won 6-1, 6-1 against Andres Pe- terson and Loren Corel- lo. Oct. 7, Shelton de- feated Mount Tahoma 3-2 in Shelton. "This was a good win for us, as Mount Ta- homa has a player that has been to state three times," Perry said. Janrick Perros, e Mount Tahoma's No. 1 singles player, is a three-time state partici- pant. "We were a bit wor- ried about this match, as we didn't know where Mount Tahoma would play (Perros)," Perry said. "But it proved to come out good in the end, as we came out with a victory." Perros defeated De- mattos 6-0, 6-2. "I thought Justin de- served to play him and he did very well against him in the second set after adjusting to the pace," Perry said. Shelton's doubles teams came through to give the Highclimbers the victory. At No. 1 doubles, Dracobly and Krumpols defeated Brian Nguyen and Hoang Nguyen 6-4, 6-2, while Will Newman and Bogh beat Kevin Ly and Davis Chan 6-0, 6-0 at No. 2 doubles. "Will and Kobe to- tally dominated their match and didn't give their opponent a sin- gle game," Perry said. Finally, at No. 3 doubles, Vernon and Pentony defeated Gabe Nguyen and John Nguy- en 6-4, 6-3. The Highclimbers (5-2 league, 8-3 overall) are scheduled to play their final nonleague match~ at 3:30 p.m. to- day at home against Timberline.
