KENNEWICK -- A pair of doubles upsets made waves at the 3A district tournament in Kennewick.
Unseeded Raney Maurer and Bailee Sanderson of Southridge took down Carlee Schmidt and Carly Riehl of West Valley 6-2, 6-2 in the quarterfinals. Maurer and Sanderson will face Acacia Dettman and Alex Sharpe of Hanford in Monday's semifinals beginning at 11 a.m.
Perhaps the biggest upset of the day, however, came from Eastmont's No. 3 doubles team of Colton Erho and Anthony Brimble, who beat the No. 4 seeded team from Southridge and then took down West Valley's top doubles team to reach the semis.
In singles action, the girls top four seeds -- including Sierra Troxel of Hanford and Stephanie Buckingham of Kennewick -- all advanced to the semis.
Never miss a local story.
In boys singles, top-seeded Luke Thompson of Hanford was joined in the semis by Falcons' teammate Kevin Sands, who upset Brock Schuh of Kennewick 6-2, 6-2 in the quarterfinals. Andrew Odland of Kamiakin also reached the boys singles semifinals, earning a shot at Thompson on Monday.
