For the second consecutive season, Union’s Jelena Vidovic lost the 4A district championship match to a freshman.
And she’s only a sophomore.
Skyview freshman Sammi Hampton earned the singles title with a 6-3, 6-0 win over Vidovic Monday at the Class 4A district tennis tournament.
Hampton dropped only three games in three matches in the tournament. Battle Ground’s Kylee Breimon earned the district’s third seed to the bi-district tournament with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Skyview’s Rayna Mathis.
Skyview’s Tara Carrie and Kristina Metz also played in their second consecutive district final. But this time, they earned their first championship, beating Battle Ground’s Taylor Beardall and Megan Giesbers, 6-4, 6-2.
Beardall and Giesbers will meet Union’s Rhiannon Morfin and Courtney Newell in a match for the No. 2 seed to the bi-district Tuesday. Both teams will advance to the bi-district.
Skyview captured the team championship.
3A district — To no one’s surprise, Columbia River’s Chloe Bartek is running away with the 3A district championship.
Bartek shot a 73 Monday to lead by 14 shots after the first day of the two-day tournament at Lewis River. Prairie’s Jamie Stilwell and Amanda Poore are tied at 87. Yushuah Peng of Camas is another nine shots back.
4A district — Evergreen’s Autumn Johnson shot an 87 and holds a one-stroke lead over Union’s Belex Cheng after the first day of the 4A district tournament at Lewis River. Skyview’s Emma Wriston is four shots back with a 91.
1A district: Seton Catholic 2, La Center 1 — A mistake cost Seton Catholic a goal in the first three minutes, but it recovered just fine to beat La Center and earn a place in the 1A state tournament.
Erik Powell scored the tying goal for Seton Catholic in the 30th minute, and Conor McDaid-O’Neill scored what proved to be the winning goal with about 15 minutes to play.
Next for Seton is a seeding match on Tuesday against either White Salmon or Hoquiam.
Battle Ground 2, Heritage 1 — Krystina Fischer limited Heritage to four hits and pitched a complete game as the Tigers made the most of their two hits to clinch a berth to next week’s bi-district tournament. Fischer struck out six.
