The Lions nipped Bainbridge 8-3 earlier this week in varsity tennis.

And with Wednesday’s rained-out match against West Seattle pushed to March 28, the Spartans won’t return to Metro play again until Wednesday, March 27 at Eastside Catholic.

Not all of the players will be idle till then, though.

On Friday, the Spartan girls played in the Thunder Tennis Invitational hosted by the Mountain View High School Thunder at Club Green Meadows in Vancouver, Wash. Other teams in the invitational included Mountain View, Skyview, Columbia River, Prairie and Hudson’s Bay (all from the  Vancouver area), plus Bellarmine Prep and Todd Beamer.

Bainbridge had the home courts in this week’s Metro battle almost caught the Lions by the tail.

“The match versus Lakeside was closer than the score indicated,” said Bainbridge Coach Michael Anderson.

“At least five matches could have gone either way so we look forward to our next meeting with them after spring break.”

Lakeside slipped away with big wins in girls singles and girls doubles.

In No. 1 boys singles, the Spartans Matt Alderson played well in a 6-7, 6-3, 6-2 loss to freshman sensation Daniel Park.

“Matt cramped up at the end but gave his all,” Anderson said.

Wednesday’s loss evened Bainbridge’s league record to 1-1.
