Keller, Rudi, Kropp and Washougal’s Wyatt Sims will advance to next week’s district tournament in Longview.
Defending 2A state champions Gabriel Slind and Ben Haukaas of Mark Morris looked every bit the favorite after sweeping their way to the sub-district doubles title with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Columbia River’s Max Firstenburg and Alex Miller.
Slind and Haukaas beat Firstenburg and Miller 7-6, 6-2 in a league match on Oct. 9.
“This match was a lot easier today,” Haukaas said of Saturday’s final. “I don’t know if it was nerves on their part or not, but I felt like we played pretty well.”
The two games in the final were the only two Slind and Hauskaas dropped all tournament.
“I really like the way we’re playing right now,” Haukaas said. “We going to keep working next week at Mint Valley, get better and get back to state.”
In addition to the two finalists, R.A. Long’s Brady Anderson and Collin Mendenhall advanced to district in doubles, along with Ridgefield’s Jonah Kropp and Mikey Nester.
Districts are Thursday and Friday at Mint Valley Racquet Club in Longview.
