MARYSVILLE At number one singles, Arlington senior Ivana Krommelova had a dominating performance, but the Eagles tennis team fell short of the win, losing 4-3 to Marysville-Pilchuck.
Krommelova defeated Marysville singles player Ashley Bartlett 6-0, 6-0 to give Arlington their only singles win.
She is a phenomenal player, said M-P head coach Nathan McClellan, whose team hosted the match. Krommelova continued her dominance over Arlingtons first singles opponents, having yet to give up a set to a challenger.
The team loss bumped Arlington to 1-3 in conference, their second loss by the narrow margin. Arlington opened their season with a 4-3 loss to Oak Harbor March 14, with their win a 5-1 victory over Everett March 20.
The Eagles doubles duo of Bridgette Burkholder and Morgan Galusha had their hands full against Marysvilles number one doubles team of April Bobadilla and Kelsey Brubaker, but Arlington emerged from a tiebreaker set with the win 7-5, 7-6 (8-6).
Arlingtons third win came courtesy of the second doubles contest where the Eagles Lauren Kelley and Kelly Hamilton won 6-3, 6-4 over Marysvilles Kaitlyn Enberg and Amy Famelos.
