The Sehome girls' tennis team added to its perfect record with a 7-0 Northwest Conference win against Ferndale Wednesday, March 27, at Ferndale High School.
Every Mariners win was in straight sets, and singles players Lauren Smith and Lizzie Friesen won 6-0, 6-0. Doubles partners Madison Harris and Taylor Harris also won 6-0, 6-0.
"Sehome is a deep, strong and young team," Ferndale coach Rudy Vendiola said in a phone interview. "They stroke the ball very well."
Vendiola said, while the score doesn't reflect it, the Golden Eagles played to deuce and add in and add out in a lot of their games.
The Ferndale coach praised Jamie Pettinger and Savannah Pothier as well as new varsity players Carly Bannerman and Shelby Slaughter for their play.
Both Sehome (5-0) and Ferndale (0-3) play next at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, March 28. Sehome hosts Lynden, and Ferndale travels to play Bellingham.
