The Squalicum girls' tennis team defeated Burlington-Edison 6-1 in the Storm's season opener on Tuesday, March 18, at Burlington-Edison High School.

"Good start of the season for us," Squalicum coach Joe O'Brien said in a phone interview. "(We) had a little nerves to begin with, but we played well."

The Storm won all four of its singles matches in straight sets, with No. 1 singles player Ali Anders topping the Tigers' JC Cammock 6-4, 6-3.

"She played a very solid match," O'Brien said. "She worked really hard in the offseason, and has taken our No. 1 spot."
