MARYSVILLE The M-P girls tennis team set out to avenge a 6-1 loss earlier in the season to Everett and nearly succeeded in the April 17 rematch.
Three matches went into a third set and Everett won two of them to take the 4-3 victory.
Tomahawk Allison Pascoes loss was probably one of the most heartbreaking for the team. The senior came back from a 5-1 deficit in her first set to force a tiebreaker. She won it, 7-5.
Her second and third sets also went into tiebreaking games, the third an 8-6 loss to Everetts Jayline Dugwen.
Hers was a tough one. She started out her first set down 1-5, and she was able to battle back and took it into a tiebreaker and won. So that was a huge effort on her part in that set, M-P tennis coach Nathan McClellan said.
(Pascoe) got ahead in the third set, then it became a little bit of a back-and-forth thing and the other girl pulled it out in the end. It was a great effort on her part.
At No. 3 singles, junior Kelsey Brubaker emerged with the Tomahawks only singles win, taking her match in two sets, 6-1, 7-5.
With regular doubles partner Jodie Anderson on vacation, junior April Bobadilla took the court with sophomore Taylor Olsen, and the Tomahawks No. 1 doubles team inflicted damage on Everetts Lilly Escamilla and Nicole Dominique, defeating the two handily, 6-2, 6-1.
M-Ps second doubles team took a little longer to get the better of their competition. Senior Lindsey Schuetze and sophomore Kaitlyn Enberg beat Everetts Mya Nguyen and Shavaun Tegman in three sets, 6-4, 1-6, 6-1.
The matchs third doubles game also went into three sets when Everetts Wendy Ludington and Ashley Roehm won the third set tiebreaker over Marysvilles Amy Famelos and Juliana Albano, 2-6, 6-4, 6-7, (5-7).
McClellan said he was proud of the team for playing hard after the tough loss to the Seagulls earlier in the season. He was a little wistful, though, too. If Marysville had won either of the two games that went into third-set tiebreakers, the win would be in the Tomahawks column.
That match against Everett was a tough loss. We really should have won 5-2, which is huge having lost to them last time 6-1, he said. All they needed was one more win to win that match. We lost both of those, so instead of winning 5-2, you lose 3-4. So even though we improved, it stung a little.
