Panthers peek out for one sunny day, get all wet anyway | Bonney Lake Tennis

The Bonney Lake girls tennis team was only able to sneak in a match around the rain drops last week, but were unable to pull out a win against the Auburn Mountainview Lions.

The Panthers fell 2-3.

Second singles player Olivia Ottinger continued her early season success for the Panthers, however, cruising to her third straight win with a 6-4, 6-3 victory.

The first doubles team of Molly Miculinich and Kelsey Kober also enjoyed their second win of the season, rallying back from a first set loss to win their match 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

But that was all the Panthers could muster as first singles player Alise McCoy, battling the player coach Billy Jacobsen called “the best in the league,” battled back from a rough first set to tie the match at one apiece before falling in the third, 0-6, 7-5, 2-6.

The second doubles team of Sam Garrity and Sam Goff fell 4-6, 2-6 and in third doubles the team of Madeline Mazur and Britany Lie, playing together for the first time, went out strong, but could not maintain their pace, falling 6-4, 1-6, 4-6.

The Panthers are scheduled to play today, Wednesday, at Enumclaw and at home against Sumner Thursday.
