WR’s Zaugg takes seventh at state tennis tournament

The Enumclaw doubles team fared less well.

The prep tennis season wrapped up with state tournament play on May 24-25 and both White River and Enumclaw high schools were in the brackets.

White River was represented by Jared Zaugg in singles play and Enumclaw took the doubles team of Emily Miller and Emma McKeighen to state. Zaugg’s Class 2A tournament was contested at the Nordstom Tennis Center in Seattle, while the Enumclaw tandem completed in the 4A tourney in the Tri-Cities.

Zaugg split four matches to capture seventh-place honors. He started with a 6-1, 6-1 victory over Efrem Roseburg of Quincy, then fell 6-3, 6-1 to Josh Chou of Sammamish High.

The second day of the 2A tourney saw Zaugg stay alive with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Bremerton’s Garrett Lawson. In his final match, to decide fifth and seventh places, Zaugg fell 6-3, 7-5 to Abe Rios of Foster High.

For Miller and McKeighen, the opening match on May 24 didn’t go they had hoped. The EHS duo lost to Carolyn Johnson and Madelyn Dibble from Lewis and Clark High, with the Spokane girls taking a 6-0, 6-1 win.

Dropping into the loser’s bracket, the Enumclaw pair went against a familiar foe. They had squared off against Sumner’s Tayva Jacobsen and Cabri Jacobsen a week earlier during the district tournament

Like before, the Spartan sisters were victorious. Taking a 6-1, 6-2 defeat, the EHS team was eliminated from tourney play.
