Shorewood Boys Doubles State Tournament
Shorewood’s doubles team of Cameron McDowell and Jack Bong defeated opponents from Central Kitsap and North Thurston but lost to Mercer Island in the quarter finals on the first day of the state tournament. In a match with Lakeside for 4th or 7th place on Saturday they lost a very close match, decided by just a handful of points that didn’t bounce their way, 5-7, 4-6. They finished with 7th in the state 3A doubles medals. Cameron McDowell was awarded, by the tournament director and officials, the medal for best sportsmanship on the first day. McDowell is a senior and finishes his tennis career with three straight WesCO South and District 1 doubles championships and three straight WIAA state tennis tournaments. Sophomore Jack Bong will return next season with the defending WesCo South league champions Shorewood.
