Coupeville High School tennis team ran its record to 3-0 with a 5-0 win over visiting Archbishop Murphy Tuesday, March 19.
The Wildcats showed up with only seven players, one short required for an official team. The coaches agreed to allow ATM to use some of its players twice to give more Coupeville players court time.
Amanda d'Almeida defeated Haley Sizelove 8-2 in first singles, and Allie Hanigan stopped Dana Tran 8-0 in second singles.
The win for d'Almeida helped the senior remain unbeaten in three matches this year. Today the Wolves go to South Whidbey at 3:30 p.m., and d'Almeida will face her toughest challenge so far, Hayley Newman, one of the state's top players.
Holly Craggs and Iris Ryckaert won first doubles over Taylor Herrera and Madeline Hoben 8-1.
Coupeville coach Ken Stange said, "Forrest Gump would say that Holly and Iris go together like peas and carrots. A botanist would point out the obvious relation between the two. I just think they are a doubles team that are starting to figure out how to work as a singular unit."
In second doubles, Ana Luvera and Mary Massengale (in her varsity debute) defeated Amy Camilleri and Lena Villani 8-2.
Coupeville won third doubles by default, but in the exhibition match, Breanna Koym and Emily Gallahar lost to Susana Bartra and No. 1 singles Haley Sizelove 8-3.
In other exhibition matches, Jacki Ginnings and Micky Levine defeated ATM's top doubles team 8-5, and McKenzie Rice and Samantha Martin downed Murphy's No. 2 doubles team 8-6.
