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.

In the first set of Marek Pierepiekarz’s Sept. 12 match against Juanita’s Branden Nokes, the Liberty High School sophomore was in complete control.
As the sun beat down and the sweat began to bead across his forehead, Pierepiekarz twirled his tennis racket with ease between serves while making quick work of Nokes on the way to a 6-0 first-set victory at the Tibbetts Park Tennis Courts.
