South Whidbey eased ahead of its four-match series with the Coupeville High School tennis team by defeating the host Wolves 4-1 Wednesday, Sept. 19.
The two island teams split earlier this season and will meet again Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 3 p.m. in Langley.
The Wolves (1-2) go to Friday Harbor this Friday at 3 p.m. and host University Prep at noon on Saturday.
Aaron Curtin provided Coupeville's highlight Wednesday with a 6-3, 3-6, 1-0(10-8) thriller in second singles.
Coach Ken Stange said, "He was gritty and determined against the same player that beat him last week. Both players spent time trading hard shots as well as long and drawn out rallies. Aaron has won two matches in a row and is demonstrating how to win matches, even when he does not have his game running on all cylinders."
