The tennis team had a great season this year with an undefeated record, a 6th place finish at districts and two athletes headed to state. The only problem is that tennis State championships are in May.

Sophomore Paul Bauer, Steilacoom’s foreign exchange student from Germany, and senior Dylan Toomey are in a double team together and ended the season with a 11-1 record and are going on to the State championships. “We had a great season, I am very proud,” stated Bauer.

But Paul and Dylan are going to have to wait until May for the State championships because the other side of the state does not have their tennis season until the spring. Bauer explained, “It’s a little frustrating because our coaches can’t coach us outside the season, but I’m happy I will get to practice throughout winter and get even better at tennis before State championships.” He added, “It was a perfect season, and I am so excited for state, even if I have to wait seven months for it.”

Even though they will not be competing again until May, Bauer and Toomey still try to practice as often as they can together to keep their skills sharp, whether it be just the two of them or anybody else interested in a match at the time. It is a great accomplishment for the tennis team to finish with an undefeated season. And with a foreign exchange student going to state, and such great final scores we are proud to say, go Sentinels!
