Prep girls tennis: Stanwood 6, Marysville Pilchuck 1

MARYSVILLE — Stanwood finally managed to dodge the rain long enough to deal Marysville Pilchuck its first girls tennis loss of the season 6-1.

Tomahawks head coach Nathan McClellan admitted the match didn’t go too well for his team, but did find some positives.

“Sarah Teummler at number one is showing she is going to be strong and competitive again this year. She is kind of holding her own right now,” said McClellan.

Though Tuemmler’s match was the only one the Tomahawks won, McClellan saw another bright spot in the practice his number one doubles team got against Megan Lalone.

“Facing a state competitor at that level was good for them. It was a chance for them to see what they might face at the end of the year.”

Lalone, normally a singles player, played doubles so she prepare for college next year, according to Stanwood head coach Trudy Abrams.

Lalone was one of several moves made by the Spartans that seem to have combined for a convincing victory.

“(Heather Smith) played Kelsey (Ghirardo) really well last week at Arlington. (We) wanted to give her the opportunity to play a strong match,” said Abrams.

Abrams also moved Elle Shaughnessy from doubles to number four singles, where she won her match 6-0,6-2.

For Stanwood, the win was nice, but just getting the season going was a plus.

“It was kind of exciting to even get out and play, the rain has backed us up so much,” said Abrams.
