Tumwater’s Ethan Dillon earned the win in the top singles match against Gabe Cuestas, 6-0, 6-2.
“I thought Ethan Dillon played really well, he might have one loss. Gabe (Cuestas) I thought played well against him,” W.F. West coach Jack State said. “Gabe played Ethan’s game and got beat 6-0, but the second set, Gabe started playing more the way he needs to play against a player like Ethan.”
Luke Walters won for the Bearcats in the No. 2 singles match against Noah Tompkins, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4).
“Last time we played, Noah Tompkins won at No. 2. Today, Luke beat him,” State said. “Luke played him last year and beat him and played him again today and beat him. Noah played Gabe the last time we played, came out with a three set win. That was a big win for Luke.”
