The Vashon High School boys tennis team had a large turnout this year for its fall season, and the boys are seeing much success on the court.

After a slow start, the team has won five of the last eight matches.

They wrapped up their regular season on Tuesday after press deadline with an away match against Eatonville, where a win would mean they finish league play and enter playoffs with a split record of 6-6.

The team received great singles play from Ben Whitaker, Peter Amick and others throughout the season.

Going into league playoffs, the players are encouraged by vastly improved doubles play as well. League playoffs will be Thursday, Oct. 18 at Northwest Christian.
