Othello girls tennis walked away with the league championship trophy after the awards ceremony prior to the CWAC district tennis tournament at East Valley.
The league champion Othello girls finished 9-0.
The duo of Macy Hampton and Jules Cantu were first team all-league and doubles team of the year. The No. 2 doubles team of Alyssa Freeman and Janeisse Alvarez was honorable mention.
Husky girls coach David Beus was named coach of the year.
“It helps to have a good team,” he said. “It says more about them than it does about me.”
On the boys’ side, Josh Lewis and Abraham Alvarez were selected as the doubles team of the year and Aaron Villarreal was honorable mention as singles player.
The Huskies played well during the opening rounds of the tournament. Hampton and Cantu defeated Grandview’s Yanet Cortez-Alexa Rodriguez 6-3,6-0. Freeman and Alvarez won two matches without giving up a game.
Lewis and Alvarez survived a close 7-6. 5-7, 7-5 battle to earn an opening round victory.
“They had a tight match, but they pulled it out,” Beus said.
A pair of Huskies won and advanced in singles action. Maya Jones rebounded from an opening set loss to earn a 1-6, 6-3 and 7-5 win.
“That was the surprise off the day,” Beus said. “She upset a girl from Prosser she just lost to the week before.”
Aaron Villarreal beat Kaleb Thorson of East Valley 6-0 and 6-1.
Action resumes today at East Valley for the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds. The top two CWAC district finishers go directly to the state tournament while the third and fourth-place district competitors will have to win a crossover match with the Great Northern League award winners.
