Sehome's girls' tennis team battled through some adversity in its 7-0 win over Sedro-Woolley on Monday, March 24, at Sedro-Woolley High School.
That adversity is going to pay off in the long run, Sehome coach Bonna Giller said in a phone interview.
Andrea Clawson defeated Kassidee Beuse 6-1, 5-7, 6-3 in the No. 1 singles spot.
"She played a gal that is real tough due to her style of play," Giller said. "She had to be mentally focused and stay in every point. For Andrea to maintain pose and complete that turnaround this early in the season, I'm impressed. The same goes for the Harrises."
Taylor and Madison Harris defeated Emily Van Liew and Bridgette Janicki 6-1, 7-5 in the No. 1 doubles and battled back from a 5-3 deficit in the second set.
"Last year, they may have folded in second, but they didn't today," Giller said. "That just shows the growth of the players."
Sehome faces Ferndale on Wednesday, March 26, at home.
