October 12, 2009 · 2:50 PM
A 3-2 win over Sumner Friday added one more W to the White River High boys tennis team’s record as it was scheduled to close out the regular season Monday with Enumclaw.
Results of that contest came too late to be included here, but can be found at www.courierherald.com. Tuesday’s seeding for the South Puget Sound League 3A tournament also came too late for publication. Postseason begins at 2:30 p.m. today, Wednesday, at Clover Park with the SPSL 3A tournament. Competition continues Thursday and Saturday. The top finishers at the league meet will advance to the West Central District tournament in the spring.
