PREP ROUNDUP: Port Angeles tennis edges Vikings for first place; Sequim triumphs over Kingston

Sequim volleyball 16 blocks in loss

PORT ANGELES — Port Angeles boys tennis secured a solo hold on first place with a 4-3 win over North Kitsap in a matchup of the Olympic League’s two unbeaten squads on Monday.

The Riders took the top two singles matches and No. 2 and No. 4 doubles to secure the win.

“Playing against North is such a challenge because they are always so deep. We felt like we matched up well with them this year and this is a huge win for our team,” said Roughriders coach Brian Gundersen.

Nathan Basden at No. 2 singles and the doubles duo of Zak Alton and Elijah Flodstrom were Gundersen’s picks as players of the match.

“We knew going in that this match was going to be close and for Nathan as a singles player and Zak and Elijah as a doubles team to overcome losing the first set and still come back to win…that obviously made the difference today,” Gundersen said.

Port Angeles (4-0) hosts Kingston today.
