Bonney Lake girls tennis scores a big break, earns first win

The Bonney Lake High girls tennis team made the most of spring break, coming back from the week off to gain its first victory of the season.

Even without No. 1 singles player Ashley Reisen, the Panthers were able to put together a 4-1 victory Thursday over Clover Park.

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.
