Bellingham’s boys’ tennis team played its best tennis of the season in coach Steve Chronister’s eyes on Saturday, Sept. 13, at the Sehome Invitational, as the Red Raiders won 6-1 over Shorecrest and lost 7-0 to Shorewood.
“I really like how we played today,” Chronister said in a phone interview. “We got to play two good teams and that brings the best out of you.”
The Red Raiders were missing a couple players, most notably Charlie Carmichael and Nate Pearsall, due to various reasons, and had three new doubles pairings. In the 6-1 win, all three doubles teams still picked up wins.
“None of the doubles teams had played together before,” Chronister said. “Those guys did a great job.”
The Red Raiders (3-1) face Lynden on Monday, Sept. 15, at home.
