For the second straight year, an Issaquah High School tennis player took second at the 4A state championships.

Last year, it was the doubles team of Sam Garrard and Kelsey Wilson, but this year it was singles player Jack Suh who earned the second-place medal. Suh won three straight games before losing to Newport’s Jason Lui in the title match.

The Skyline High School doubles team of Jasmine Ye and Julia Lioubarski finished eighth in the 4A tournament.
