The Enumclaw High duo of Kylie Rademacher and Mariah Bone made the trip to the Tri-Cities and the Class 3A state tennis tournament, taking fifth place by winning three matches and losing one.
The girls opened the doubles tournament on the outdoor courts at Kamiakin High School losing to Gabby Venditti and Lydia Venditti from Mercer Island 6-0, 6-1 Friday. The Venditti girls won the tournament and are three-time state champions.
The EHS duo came out in the next match and beat Amy Wang and Nadia Khan from Lakeside 6-2, 6-3.
Rademacher and Bone followed up with another win, defeating Katie Lacayo and August Carow from West Seattle 6-0, 6-2.
Saturday, the Hornet pair closed out the tournament beating Emily Tan and Christiana Xantheas from Hanford 7-6 (7-3), 6-4.
Coach Rick Carel said the girls, “Fought very, very hard. They dug themselves a 0-5 hole (in the last match) and fought all the way back and won the tie breaker.”
Carel said Rademacher and Bone are successful because “they listen and work hard.”
