The Coupeville tennis team picked up two fourth-place finishes in the district tournament last week.

Singles player Allie Hanigan lost 7-5, 7-6 to Abbie Steele of Nooksack Valley in the second day of the tournament Friday, May 16, in Coupeville to finish fourth.

"She had big leads in both sets but was unable to convert," coach Ken Stange said. "She had a heck of a year, though."

In doubles action at South Whidbey Friday, Jacki Ginnings and Wynter Thorne fell to a duo from Blaine 6-3, 6-3 and placed fourth.

"They had a pretty impressive tourney, if you take into consideration that they were the eighth-seeded team," Stange said.
