Sumner High’s Jade Lancaster steamrolled four opponents, losing just one set in the process, to claim the Class 3A state tennis championship.

The state tourney, played May 27-28 in the Tri-Cities, brought together the top 16 players from all corners of Washington. They met on the courts of Kamiakin High School and the Tri-City Court Club.

To claim the 3A girls title, Lancaster had to defeat Angel Le of Interlake High School. The first set was a struggle, with Lancaster coming out on top 7-6, but the Spartan blitzed her Bellevue opponent in the second set, winning 6-0.

To reach the finals, Lancaster first defeated Shreyaa Mukund of Interlake High 6-2, 6-4. She took her quarterfinals match 6-4, 6-2 over Tina Kiu of Mountlake Terrace and then, in the semifinals, slipped past Viv Danile of Lakeside (Seattle) 3-6, 6-3, 6-2.

Sumner High had won a pair of games in the Class 3A state baseball tournament, earning a spot in the Final Four and a trip to Gesa Stadium in Pasco.

Things proved noticeably tougher east of the mountains.

The Spartans dropped Friday’s semifinal game 11-0 to Lakeside of Seattle, then lost by the identical score Saturday to Southridge in the battle for third or fourth.

The tournament opener started fine for Sumner, with the Spartans’ Preston Fullington and Lakeside’s Ben Hinthorne each throwing shutouts for four innings. Everything then fell apart for Sumner and Lakeside answered with an 11-run outburst in the fifth frame.

With the 10-run rule in place, the game was halted and Sumner dropped into the battle for third and fourth.

Saturday’s consolation round game also was a shortened affair, gong six innings.


The following athletes advanced to the finals during the May 26-28 Class 3A state track and field meet. Competition took place at Tacoma’s Mount Tahoma High School.
