Lily Olson and Lauren Jergens of Kennedy Catholic teamed up to snag a seventh place finish in the Class 4A girls tennis tournament for doubles this past weekend.

Olson and Jergens opened with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Issy Koehler and Marissa Johnson of Glacier Peak before falling to Misa Takami and Sophia Kissin of Hazen, 6-0, 6-0, in the quarterfinals.
The Lancers regrouped to defeat Calley Heilborn and Anna Maracich of Auburn-Riverside, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4, in their first consolation match.

That advanced Olson and Jergens to the match for fourth and seventh place, which they narrowly lost to Kaylynn Noyd and Anna Davenport of Wenatchee, 2-6, 6-3, 7-6.
