WRHS TENNIS: Hornets open well in league tournament

Despite the cloudy weather, White River High’s boys tennis team headed into the league tournament with a sunny outlook.

Drew Maras, the No. 8 seed in singles, won the opening round against Josh Seerden from Sumner 6-1, 6-0 and dropped his second round of play against Caleb Schmidt from Eatonville, 6-4, 6-3.

Unranked Hornet singles’ representative David Connelly opened with a 7-5, 6-1 loss to Doug Kim of Clover Park.

Teammate Bryan Lee also lost his opening round, going 6-2, 6-7 (7-10) in a third-set tiebreaker.

In Hornets’ double action, ninth-seeded Hunter Bruckbauer and Josh Mills opened with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Clover Park, before dropping a second-round match to Interlake 6-1, 6-1.

Seventh-seeded Sam Bruckbauer and Lyle McCarragher were first-round winners, taking Franklin Pierce 6-3, 6-0. The Hornets then faced Sumner, where they dropped the first set 6-2, won the second 6-4, and lost the final set 6-3.

Alec Anastasi and Travis Meyers rounded out the Hornets’ league showing with a 7-5, 6-3 first-round win over Steilacoom, but once again, the second round stymied the Hornets as they lost to Interlake 6-2, 6-1.
