Coach: Joe O'Brien
Last Year: Finished fifth in the Class 2A Northwest Conference standings with a league record of 1-6 and finished 1-11 overall. ... Did not advance any players to state.
Players to watch: Zach Hart (sr.); Aaron Morris (sr.); James Tan (sr.); Avery Wolfe (jr.); Tavo O'Connell (so.)
Outlook: The Storm may not have qualified anyone for the Class 2A State Tournament a year ago, but Squalicum got a year older and coach Joe O'Brien likes what he's seen from his group so far in practice. Seniors and co-captains Zach Hart and Aaron Morris give Squalicum two strong, tested players. Morris led the Storm in winning percentage last year with a 6-6 record in doubles matches, and O'Brien expects the duo to make a formidable doubles team this year. James Tan, Avery Wolfe and Tavo O'Connell are others O'Brien said are looking strong, and Kevin Smiley and Drew Segren are two promising up-and-comers. "We're coming together pretty well," O'Brien said in a phone interview. "The guys have been feeling good and have been gelling. It's been good to see."
