Colville Highâ€™s entry into the State 2A tennis tournament last Friday and Saturday at the Nordstrom Center on the University of Washington campus in Seattle was a short-lived affair.
The Indiansâ€™ entry to the State tournament, the doubles team of Hannah Greene and Mariah Oâ€™Brien, was eliminated after a pair of losses.
Greene/Oâ€™Brien fell to their opposition from West Valley (Yakima), 0-6, 0-6, then were eliminated by a Kingston duo, 3-6, 6-7(5-7).
â€śThe girls played well and gave it everything they had in the second set,â€ť CHS head coach Phil Johnson said of the loss to Kingston.
Johnson said that Oâ€™Brien and Greene played in the â€śtoughest doubles tournament I have seen in the last 15 years.â€ť
Johnson said that even the unbeaten Pullman doubles team didnâ€™t place.
â€śThey lost in the first round, won a match, then lost,â€ť Johnson said.
Colville will move into the Northeast A League next spring.
