The 28 singles players and 28 doubles teams that converged on the Skyline High School tennis courts last week knew they’d have to be on top of their games.
At the Class 4A KingCo Conference girls tennis championships, only the two finalists in singles and doubles were guaranteed berths into the state tournament, while the third-place finisher had to win a crossover match with a Wesco Conference foe to get there.
As it turned out, the competition wasn’t the only thing that proved daunting over the course of the three-day event. Eighty-degree temperatures greeted the players in the afternoons, making fitness even more vital.
