Bonney Lake Tennis: Alise McCoy returns to State for a second year

McCoy played first singles all year for the Panthers and finished the season 5-2.

Bonney Lake’s Alise McCoy is headed back to the state tennis tournament for the second straight year.

McCoy played first singles all year for the Panthers and finished the season 5-2, with both her losses coming at the hands of Maggie Henderson from Auburn Mountainview.

McCoy, a senior at Bonney Lake High School, placed second in the sub-district tournament (behind Henderson) in April and finished fifth at the district tournament May 12 and 19.

Last year, McCoy became the first Panther tennis player to play at the state tournament, though she was eliminated in the first round. She hopes to do better this season.

The state tournament begins Friday in Kennewick. McCoy is not seeded but expects to play a seeded opponent in the first round.
