Taking over for Reisen in the top singles spot, Olivia Ottiger scored a 6-4, 6-4 victory.

In doubles play, the Panthers never faltered, keeping the Clover Park Warriors off the scoreboard.

In No. 1 doubles, sisters and state tourney hopefuls Emily and Alise McCoy beat Briana Medina and Cheska Orencia while Katie Barrie and Jessica Roller beat Michelle Fernandez and Sheniglan Haynes. In third doubles Kelsey Kober and Molly Miculinich beat Caroline Jones and Graciela Meza. All three doubles teams won 6-0, 6-0.

Coach Billy Jacobsen said he is yet to put together a full squad, but hopes to have his top eight players in place for this week’s matches against Sumner, Enumclaw and Franklin Pierce.
