Marysville Getchell's Evan Suragie keeps the rally alive against the Eagles at Marysville Getchell High School on Oct. 11.

The Marysville Getchell boys tennis team welcomed the Arlington Eagles to their home court for their second meeting of the year on Oct. 11.

Earlier in the season the Chargers lost to the Eagles by a team score of 6-1. This time around Marysville Getchell played with a lot more toughness as many of the matches ended up coming down to the final few serves. However, even with an elevation of play the Eagles still managed to walk away with another 6-1 win.

"This year's group has been hard working and dedicated. Our record does not show it, but a lot of the matches could have gone either way. The boys played hard and had good attitudes," said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Stacie Pate.

Eben Heacock dominated his matchup for the Chargers as he played in the number one singles slot. In both of his sets, he managed to finish with the impressive scores of 6-3 on his way to the only win for his team.

"Right now, we're trying to figure out who's going to play in the postseason. Each practice is going to be a lot of match play and it's going to be competitive as each one wants a chance going forward," said Arlington Head Coach Ben Mendro.

Vincent Loftis sends over the strong return for the Eagles at Marysville Getchell High School on Oct. 11.

In the number two singles matchup, Arlington's Taras McCurdie secured the momentum early on after he won the first set, 6-1. The second set was a little closer with a score of 6-4, but he managed the flow the entire time on his way to the victory.

The number one doubles team of senior captains, Conner Fochesato and Will Eckley secured the win against a couple of the Chargers best players. Marysville Getchell's duo of Evan Sprague and Mack Gray held on as they took on the Eagles, but after two sets failed to take the win as they lost by set scores of 6-2 and 7-6.

The regular season for boys tennis is over, but if you want to support the local tennis players the 3A North Division Tournament will be on Wednesday, Oct. 18, at 1 p.m. The tournament will be held at Snohomish High School.
