Mill Creek Little League players lended a hand to fellow athletes at nationals.

Jackson’s Anuj Vimawala and Cascade’s Abby Hahn took home the glamour titles at the fourth annual Snohomish Summer Smash tennis tournament held over the weekend at Snohomish High School.

Vimawala won the Boys Gold Singles Division by defeating King’s Gunnar Thorstenson 6-1, 6-1 in the championship match. Vimawala then doubled up in the Boys Gold Doubles Division, teaming with Brady Thomas to defeat Bothell’s Andrew Schuller and Johnny Schuller 6-4, 3-6, 10-4 in the title match.

Hahn claimed the Girls Gold Singles Division title by topping Snohomish’s Megan Lever 6-4, 6-3.

Other division winners were: Girls Gold Doubles, Katri Shields and Tessa Rugg, Snohomish; Girls Silver Singles, Maia Marks, Snohomish; Boys Silver Singles, Macen Strickland, Snohomish; Boys Silver Doubles, Colin McDonald and William McDonald, Snohomish; Mixed Doubles, Jordan Megiveron and Alexi Huffman, Edmonds-Woodway.

The tournament included 60 players from 14 different schools.

Mill Creek L.L. lends helping hand

The Mill Creek Little League Seniors (ages 15-16) baseball team finished 1-2 at the West Regional, which is ongoing in Sacramento, California. Mill Creek opened the tournament with a 10-0 victory over Billings Heights National from Montana last Thursday. However, Mill Creek lost 12-0 to Central East Maui from Hawaii on Saturday and 7-4 to Sunnyside from Arizona on Sunday and was eliminated from the tournament.

However, Mill Creek still left an indelible mark on the tournament because of its sportsmanship. According to story posted the website of KCRA-TV in Sacramento, Mill Creek lent Billings Heights National its equipment after all of the Montana team’s gear was stolen.

“My first thought is: Where are they going to get gear? How did this happen? How could it happen? And, I wanted to help,” Mill Creek’s Xavier Wilkening-Joly told the station’s Tom Miller.

The Montana team’s gear was found untouched after the game.
