Wolves get ready for postseason play / Tennis

Although the Coupeville High School tennis team finished the regular season with a 4-3 non-league loss at South Whidbey Monday, Oct. 16, it is playing its best tennis at the right time.

After losing five of their first six matches (including a 4-1 loss to South Whidbey Sept. 21), the Wolves bounced back to win five of the final seven and finish just one game behind Klahowya in the race for the conference title.

Coupeville (4-2, 6-7) now carries its hot hand into the postseason, starting with the Olympic League 1A tournament at 10:45 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, on the Wolves’ courts.

The top four singles players and the top four doubles teams from the league tournament advance to the district tournament Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 25 and 26, at the Sprinker Tennis Center in Tacoma.
