Coupeville unable to hold onto title / Tennis

Unable to secure the sweep it needed to retain the Olympic League crown, the Coupeville High School tennis team split a doubleheader with visiting Klahowya Thursday, Oct. 5.

The Eagles beat Coupeville 5-2 Sept. 15, so the Wolves needed to win twice Thursday to take the three-match season series and hold onto the Olympic League championship it won in 2016.

Coupeville clipped Klahowya 4-3 in the opening match but fell by the same score in the second.

The two teams played twice Thursday to make up for a postponement last week.

Klahowya is now 4-1 in conference play and 11-2 overall. Coupeville is 2-2 and 3-6. Klahowya will play Chimacum once to complete its league schedule. The Wolves have two matches left with the winless Cowboys (0-3, 0-7).

Before Coupeville faces Chimacum, it has a non-league match at home with Sequim (6-6) at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10.

Coupeville 4, Klahowya 3

Singles: 1, Tiger Johnson lost 8-0; 2, Nile Lockwood lost 8-0; 3, Jaschon Baumann won 8-4.
