After winning just one of its first 11 matches, the Coupeville High School tennis team earned its second win in a row when it beat Bear Creek 3-2 Friday, Oct. 11, on the road.
The Wolves are now 2-10 in Emerald City League play and 3-10 overall.
Coupeville was edged 3-2 by Bear Creek (7-6) just two days before the Wolves reversed the score Friday. Coach Ken Stange changed his lineup, and the new format produced a win.
Drake Borden (6-4, 6-3) and Thane Peterson (6-3, 6-3) picked up wins in first and second singles, and James Wood and Mason Grove captured first doubles 6-1, 6-2.
Zach Ginnings and Andrew Aparicio were nipped 2-6, 6-4, 12-10 in second doubles; and Miles Davidson and Logan Martin fell 6-1, 6-2 in third doubles.
Coupeville wraps up the regular season with two matches next week. First, the Wolves travel to first-place Seattle Academy (10-1) for a 3:45 p.m. match Monday, Oct. 14, and then they finish at home with last-place Bush (1-7) at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
