Bonney Lake tennis player Alise McCoy once again made her way back to the state tournament in Kennewick this year, but once again, McCoy was unable to get out of the first round.

Bonney Lake tennis player Alise McCoy once again made her way back to the state tournament in Kennewick this year, but once again, McCoy was unable to get out of the first round.

McCoy, a senior, is the first Bonney Lake tennis player to make the state tournament, a feat she achieved last year as a junior and again this year.

But McCoy drew a tough opponent in the first round, May 25, eventual state champion, Nora Tan of Mercer Island.

Tan bested McCoy 6-0, 6-0 in their first round matchup. McCoy also lost her second match 4-6, 5-7.

Coach Billy Jacobsen said McCoy was slow to warm up and did not play her best tennis in the opening round. By the time McCoy started coming around in the second match, it was too late to battle all the way back.

Jacobsen said he was proud of McCoy’s play, especially because she does not compete in club tennis, like many of the other top players in the state do.

“For a non-tournament player and someone who doesn’t play much tennis compared to the other girls, she did really, really well,” Jacobsen said in an email.
