Columbia River junior Emma Lungwitz took the first step toward a third 2A state tennis tournament berth by winning the 2A Greater St. Helens League singles title at Ridgefield on Friday.

Top-seeded Lungwitz defeated teammate and No. 2 seed Jenny Serebriakova, a freshman, 6-2, 6-3 in the final.

Lungwitz had advanced with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Audrey Zdunich of R.A. Long in the semifinals. Serebriakova advanced with a 6-4, 6-0 win over Madelyn Hetland of Mark Morris.

The top doubles seed of Columbia River sophomore Annie Morgan and junior Sydney Dreves dropped just five games in four matches on their way to the championship.

Dreves and Morgan beat River seniors Shaylin Murphy and Annabella Madrigal 6-2, 6-1 in the final.

Dreves won the 2A state doubles title last year with her sister Lauren, while Lungwitz placed fourth in singles. She was sixth as a freshman.

Next week is the district tournament where Lungwitz is the defending singles champion. The top four placers at district move on to state in Seattle on May 24-25.

The top three placers in singles and doubles advance to the bi-district tournament next Thursday and Friday at Kent.
