SEATTLE - Bainbridge won, even though they lost.

A 6-5 loss on the road against Seattle Preparatory Wednesday moved the Bainbridge High varsity tennis team's league record to 7-4, which secured for them the number two spot in the upcoming team playoffs.

"Bainbridge co-ed tennis finished the regular season with a 7-4 Metro league record, good for a second place finish to number one Lakeside," explained Spartan Head Coach Mike Anderson. "The loss to Seattle Prep left both teams with identical 7-4 records, but BHS defeated Prep 7-4 in the first meeting thus providing [us] the tiebreaker for second."

BHS is now the second seed in the team playoffs, slated to begin in Seattle Friday, May 2.

The Spartans' first round opponent will be either Ingraham or Chief Sealth, followed by TBD opponents Monday and Tuesday.

The winner of the team playoffs is the league champion.

The disappointing fall to Prep Wednesday still saw some excellent BHS performances.

"No. 1 boys singles Matt Alderson ran his season record to 8-1 with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Prep's No. 1 Luke Targett," Anderson said. "Matt's career record now stands at 66-11, and he is within three wins of career wins leader Jacob Christensen, class of 2013."

Other impressive wins included Keet Curtis, Ben DeVries, Jordan Ferguson and the doubles team of Holt Ogden and Eli Wagner.

Freshman No. 2 girls singles Sammi Jiang was impressive in a 6-4, 6-7 (6), 6-4 loss to No. 2 Meghan Zech, the second time this year those two girls have gone three sets.
