After getting blitzed by a perennial KingCo Conference power earlier in the week, the Issaquah High School boys tennis team was ready to slam someone.

The Eagles found their prey Sept. 15 by overwhelming Inglemoor, 7-0, in a KingCo 4A match at Issaquah.

Issaquah won all the matches in two sets. Evan Cheung took the No. 1 singles match with a 6-1, 6-1 victory against Scott Zheng. Andrew Kim won the No. 2 singles match by beating Derek Wang, 6-4, 6-1. Richard Bennett cruised by Nick Paulag, 6-0, 6-0, to win the No. 3 singles. David Park dominated Thomas Lancastor, 6-1, 6-1, to take the No. 4 singles.

In the doubles play, John Brendel and Matt Gonn teamed to win the No. 1 match with a 6-4, 6-1 victory against Ryan Park and Zach Church. Jeffery Weng and Andrew Okada took the No. 2 doubles match with a 6-2, 6-1 victory against Jeffrey Chinn and Isac Ropahcho. Ken Kida and Daniel Park wrapped up the sweep for Issaquah by beating Chris Berger and Bahul Bachul, 6-0, 6-1, in the No. 3 doubles match.

Two days earlier, however, Issaquah lost to Newport, 7-0. Newport won all the matches in two sets. The Knights were especially dominant in doubles play.

Skyline had a big week on the courts. The Spartans swept by Garfield, 7-0, Sept. 15 in a league match. On Sept. 12, Skyline defeated Overlake, 6-1, in a nonleague match.

In the match with Garfield, Aman Manji won the No. 1 singles with a 6-4, 6-3 victory against Diego Alcaron. Brayden Hansen and Alex Wu won the No. 1 doubles with a 6-2, 6-2 victory against Aaron Schechter and Patrick Mogan.

In the Overlake match, Manji won the No. 1 doubles with a 6-1, 6-0 victory against Tryn Torvund.
