The Overlake and Bear Creek Schools split the two singles matches, but Overlake swept the doubles matches in a nonleague boys tennis match as the Owls beat the Grizzlies, 4-1, Wednesday afternoon.

Overlake’s Keith Wilkes won the No. 1 singles match 6-0, 6-3 against Tim Hughes. Bear Creek’s Alex Finkelson won No. 2 singles against Rob Munoz 7-6 (3), 6-1.

But the Grizzlies, who had just three tennis players try out for the program, couldn’t compete with the Owls depth.

Overlake won all three doubles matches in straight sets. Pratik Keni and Ed Sampson won No. 1 doubles 6-0, 6-2, while Nishant Velagupudi and Henk Wolda blanked the Grizzlies in No. 2 doubles 6-0, 6-0. Grant and Marcus Munoz nearly did the same in No. 3 doubles, winning 6-0, 6-1.

The Overlake girls tennis team swept all five matches in straight sets against Forest Ridge on Monday in a 1A Emerald City League contest.

Helen Bouscarren and Lucy Bechtol were Overlake’s new No. 1 doubles combo and combined for a 6-1, 6-4 win against the Bellevue-based school.

No. 2 and No. 3 doubles were both shortened due to snow and lightning. But Catherine Jessen and Nikki Reynolds won the No. 2 doubles match 6-2, 6-3, while Diana Toma and Jennifer Patterson led No. 3 doubles, 6-3, 4-1, before the lightning started.

Julia Goncharenko (6-0, 6-3) and Stephanie Roush (6-1, 6-1) both breezed through their No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches.

Pakzad, a junior, shot a 2-over par 37, while freshman Reid Frederickson had the second best score of the match with a 38.

But Bellevue Christian’s consistency — with five golfers between 40-43 — was too much for Overlake, who had four between 47-50.
