Overlake volleyball, golf and tennis athletes find success | Owls Roundup
Overlake defeated Bush, 25-6, 25-11, 25-13, in a 1A Emerald City League wildcard match last night. The Owls will next play in a loser-out game at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Lynden Christian.
Against Bush, Sela Dragich had 24 assists, Andreea Gavrilescu had 13 digs, Maria Steen had nine kills and Emma Ross Williams had eight kills.
Overlake freshman varsity boys golfer Rohit Sirosh was named the 1A Emerald City League Rookie of the Year and won the league tournament by eight strokes, with a 66, last month at Snoqualmie Falls Golf Course. Overlake also won the league team tournament by one stroke.
Rohit and four of his teammates — senior Eli Waalkes, senior Drew Chouinard, freshman Roderick Jones and freshman Nelson Ngouenet — qualified for the tri-district tournament in May.
Overlake's boys doubles team comprised of juniors Keshav Ummat and Pranav Harikrishnan performed well at 1A tri-districts and qualified for the state tournament in the spring.
They qualified for state last year as part of two different doubles teams. Harikrishnan and his partner finished second and Ummat and his partner finished sixth.
At tri-districts, they beat Vashon Island in the quarterfinals (6-2, 6-1), lost to University Prep in the semifinals (6-4, 6-2) and beat Seattle Academy in the consolation semifinals (4-6, 6-4, 6-4) to earn a state berth.
According to coach Jeff Loranger, "Pranav has great accuracy with his lobs, angles on passing shots and quick hands at the net. Keshav uses his athleticism to be everywhere on the court. He posseses both a strong forehand and serve.
"Their teamwork is good and should help them to place well, if not win state in doubles."
