Paige Bramer, Marysville-Pilchuck's third singles player, rushes the net and puts pressure on the Spartan's player at Totem Middle School on April 19.

The Marysville-Pilchuck girls tennis team matched up with the league-leading Stanwood Spartans on April 19.

The Tomahawks played hard in every matchup and managed to push the Spartans around during a few sets. However, Stanwood controlled the majority of the matches, and showed that in the final score over Marysville-Pilchuck, 7-0. After this loss the Tomahawks moved to a 2-3 league record and an overall record of 3-5. The Spartans elevated themselves to a league leading 6-1 record, 8-3 overall.

"We're halfway through the season and they are starting to understand the strategy and placement parts of the game. The games were really close and that's huge going against a really good Stanwood team. Now that they're close, I want to transfer that into more games won, more sets won and more matches won," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Evan Shaw.
