The Eatonville Cruiser girls tennis team secured victories in all three of their matches last week, while extending their winning streak to four.

Their week commenced on Monday with a 6-0 win over Black Hills, a 2A school. No. 1 singles player Bailey Andersen led the charge, clinching her match with a 6-0, 6-1 win. Notably, Isabel Volk at No. 2 singles battled through three sets to secure 4-6, 6-2, 10-3 win. In No. 3 singles Amelia Ferreira won 6-3, 2-6, 7-6. 

The doubles pairs proved equally formidable, with #1 duo Lillian Bickford and Alayna Meyer sealing their victory in straight sets (7-5, 6-1), and No. 2 pairing Jessie Zumwalt and Jennavieve Smith commanding a 6-0, 6-0 win. Tam Thompson and Megan Blake rounded off the success with a 6-4, 6-1 triumph in their doubles match.

Tuesday marked the team's home opener and first league match against Hoquiam, where they continued their winning streak with a convincing 5-0 win. Andersen, Volk, and Ferreira maintained their stellar form, each securing straight-set victories. The doubles combinations of Lillian Bickford/Alayna Meyer and Jessie Zumwalt/Jennavieve Smith mirrored their previous performance with dominant straight-set wins.

In their final match of the week on Thursday against Tenino, Eatonville clinched a 4-1 victory in another league encounter. Andersen's remarkable form persisted as she secured yet another straight-set win, conceding only one game throughout the week. Ferreira secured victory in three sets. The doubles pairings of Bickford/Meyer and Zumwalt/Smith maintained their winning ways, securing victories to contribute to Eatonville's triumph.
