Wildcats win finale, divisional meet next | Tennis
Finishing out the regular season with a 6-1 win over visiting Marysville-Pilchuck Wednesday, Oct. 16, the Oak Harbor High School tennis team now takes aim at the Wesco 3A North divisional tournament.
The divisional championship is set for 1 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct. 22 and 23, at Stanwood. The top four finishers in singles and doubles at the divisional meet move on to the district tournament Oct. 29 and 30, also at Stanwood High School.
Oak Harbor coach Horace Mells said he isn't sure of his district lineup. Harrison Miller and Carter Saar will most likely represent the Wildcats in singles and the duos of Casiano Atienza/Jackson Wezeman and Jozef Mendoza/Jose Dimaculangan in doubles.
Injuries to Miller and Saar could change the setup, Mells said.
Miller missed the Marysville-Pilchuck match with a shoulder injury, and Saar, nursing a sore hip, played doubles instead of singles against the Tomahawks to limit the amount of court he had to cover.
With Miller and Saar not playing singles against Marysville-Pilchuck, the No. 3 and No. 4 singles players, Atienza and Wezeman, moved up to the top two spots and won.
Atienza won 6-4, 6-1 and Wezeman 6-2, 6-1.
The usual second doubles team of Tom Dale and Jacob Nelson split up to play third and fourth singles. Dale prevailed 6-1, 6-1 and Nelson won 6-0, 6-1.
Saar and Isaac Deleon took second doubles 6-0, 6-1; and Kyle Martin and Jared Alano-Gray won third doubles 6-1, 4-6, 6-4.
Dimaculangan and Mendoza lost 6-2, 6-1 in first doubles to Owin Ell and Trent Tingelstad, who usually play first and second singles for the Tomahawks (0-13, 0-16).
Oak Harbor (5-8, 6-10) finished third in the final Wesco North 3A standings.
