The Class 4A KingCo Conference boys tennis tournament was supposed to last three days, but heavy rain stretched it to five.
The weather delays didn’t seem to bother Issaquah High School sophomore Jackson Suh, who outlasted all of his competitors to win the singles bracket Nov. 1 at Skyline High School.
Suh, the runner-up at last season’s state tournament, cruised through his four matches en route to the KingCo title, and will now have several months to rest up and hone his game before the state event in May.

The Liberty High School boys tennis team wrapped up its regular season with a home-court loss to Interlake Oct. 16.
The Patriots dropped five of the seven matches against the Saints, but found a sliver of hope when two players who normally compete in singles teamed up to show impressive mettle in the No. 1 doubles match.
Marek Pierepiekarz and Matthew Cao defeated Interlake’s Michael Kwong and Justin Lee in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.
“Winning 6-3, 6-3 in the Interlake match was an amazing accomplishment for two singles players to achieve as a newly-formed doubles team,” Liberty coach Mike Salokas said.
