It’s been four years and 40 wins since the Lady Wolves tasted defeat and they are as hungry as ever to keep the streak going.

Led by Meghan Johnson (8-2) and Katrina Springer (8-2) playing singles, the undefeated doubles teams of Quinn Herlihy and Sela Serafin, and Sarah Minnich and Sonja Marcus, along with undefeated teammate Emma Long, helped make it a near perfect season for the Lady Wolves.

Timbercrest girls also took three of the top four places in the year end girls tennis district championships held at Northshore Junior High School. Only the top eight lady singles players and top eight lady doubles players representing all six Northshore junior high schools qualified for the tournament. First place in ladies singles went to Kylie Russell from Kenmore Junior High and second place to Katrina Springer from Timbercrest Junior High.

Ladies doubles was a closely contested match with the team of Quinn Herlihy and Sela Serafin from Timbercrest Junior High taking first place and Audrey Karnan and Sierra McKissick from Timbercrest Junior High taking second.
