Ferndale sweeps singles for second time in win over Anacortes

For the second time this season, the Ferndale boys’ tennis team swept singles play, as the Golden Eagles evened their record with a 5-2 Northwest Conference victory over Anacortes on Friday, Sept. 19.

“The singles are playing really well as a team,” Ferndale coach Rudy Vendiola said in a phone interview.

Vendiola said Maxwell Jeffery had the match of the day with his 6-1, 6-4 win over Sam Rockwood at No. 1 singles, and Tate Freeman, Lake Sullivan and Colton Young did not lose a set in the other three singles matches.

Kobe Sullivan and Joshua Usery added a win at No. 3 doubles.

Ferndale (2-2) returns to action Monday when it hosts Bellingham.
