Prep stars of the night for Tuesday, Oct. 23

An Arlington boys tennis duo made history, earning the first state tournament berth in team history.

Here are Tuesday’s prep stars of the night:

Ben Spores and Ben Nichols, Arlington boys tennis

Spores, a senior, and Nichols, a junior, beat Edmonds-Woodway’s Drew Boland and Alec Matulka 6-4, 6-3 Tuesday in the third/fourth place match at the 3A District 1 Tournament. In front of the home crowd at Arlington Hign School, Spores and Nichols became the first boys from the Eagles’ program to reach a state tournament, according to coach Ben Mendro.

Shelby Lund, Stanwood girls soccer

Lund, a junior midfielder, scored in double overtime to lift the Spartans to a 3-2 come-from-behind win over Marysville Pilchuck in a Wesco 3A match. Stanwood trailed 2-0 before rallying to force extra time, and Lund’s goal completed the comeback.

Emma Leggett, South Whidbey volleyball

Leggett, a senior outside hitter, recorded 26 kills and eight digs to lift the Falcons to a four-set victory over Cedar Park Christian in a North Sound Conference clash.
