The Overlake School had a strong showing at last weekend's Class 1B/2B/1A state tennis tournaments as all five Owls came away with some state hardware.
The doubles team of senior Caroline Spencer and junior Emily Walter were crowned state champions after taking down a duo from Colville, 6-1, 1-6, 6-4 in Saturday's finals at the Yakima Tennis Center.
The Owls almost had another state champion in senior Trym Torvund, who fell to Charles Wright's Daniel Hahm, 6-2, 6-4, in the boys' singles finals.
Overlake senior Eathan Hayden and sophomore Bob Gardner earned the fourth-place medals in the boys' doubles tournament after beating Jeremy Gaudette and Jonas Rickenbacher of Naches Valley, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
