25 years ago (1987)

Kim Olseson’s 6-2, 6-2 victory over Heide Sylvester in the first singles match and Brooke Burkett’s 6-0, 6-1 victory at second singles sparked Everett to the Wesco AAA victory. The Seagulls, 4-3 in the conference and 5-3 overall, won each of the seven matches in straight sets.

Summer just wasn’t going to stop. Everettites could count on at least 10 more rainless days. The lack of rain in recent months, while welcome to many, had meant water restrictions, rivers at record lows and farmers planting wheat in dust.
