The Lynden girls' tennis team fell 5-2 at Anacortes in a Northwest Conference match Tuesday, April 16.
"I was proud of the doubles play and I thought we played strong at one and two doubles," Lynden coach Trey Ballard said in a phone interview. "We were really slow to start today. We were down in the second doubles and they were able to come back and really responded. It was good to see them turn it around and it's only the second match of the year for them as a team."
Bailee Mulder and Kelly Siebig won the second doubles match for the Lions (0-1 NWC, 1-5) with a score of 7-6, 6-0. Morgan Otter and Tilly Timmer won the first doubles match 6-4, 6-1 to give Lynden its other win.
The Lions host Squalicum on Wednesday, April 17, for a Northwest Conference match.
