The Vashon boys tennis team won its final league match, against Eatonville on Oct. 9, to finish 6-6 in the Nisqually League — a good record after a slow start to the season.
The boys carried their late-season momentum into the league tournament on Thursday, finishing eighth and fourth in doubles and third and fourth in singles.
Singles players Ben Whitaker and Peter Amick finished the tournament tied for third in singles and will play each other to determine who advances to the district tournament on Wednesday.
In doubles play, Caz Mozeleski and Parker Scott lost a heartbreaking three-set match, which would have sent them to districts as well.
It was a strong showing for Vashon, which emerged as a clear second-strongest team at the tournament after powerhouse Charles Wright.
In addition to finishing a successful tournament, the tennis team’s future looks bright for next season. A strong group of freshman and sophomore players developed this year, and some key juniors will return next year as well.
