Despite returning just four players from last year’s team, members of the Bonney Lake High girls tennis squad are excited about the upcoming season.

Despite returning just four players from last year’s team, members of the Bonney Lake High girls tennis squad are excited about the upcoming season.

“For the beginning of the season, we’re looking better than I thought we would,” senior Ashley Reisen said.

“I’m pretty excited for the season,” echoed sophomore Alise McCoy, who – along with her sister Emily McCoy – missed qualilfying for last year’s state Class 3A state tournament by one match.

According to coach Billy Jacobsen, the McCoy sisters will play No. 1 doubles and should once again make a run at state.

Emily McCoy will be a late arrival, finishing her season with the Panther basketball team, now appearing in the state tournament.

Jacobsen said Reisen and fellow senior Katie Barrie may play singles or as a second doubles pair.

Though the team is young, the seniors claim the new girls on the team give them reason to be excited.

Both Jacobsen and Reisen said the new additions have brought a lot of energy to the courts.

Last year, the team finished with a 10-3 overall record, tied for third in the South Puget Sound League 3A standings. Jacobsen is looking for an even better finish this year.

Bonney Lake opens its season March 17 at Franklin Pierce.
