Bremerton's Courtney Wasserburger and Breanna Casias are the Olympic League doubles champions.

The duo swept four matches in four tries over the two-day league tournament Friday and Saturday at North Kitsap High School to secure a berth to the district tournament, which begins May 19 at Sprinker Recreation Center in Tacoma.

Casias and Wasserburger played No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively, during the regular season, but coach Casey Lindberg swapped them into doubles action for the postseason after deciding that would give them a better chance to make a deep playoff run.

After cruising to a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Olympic's Hannah Mires and Tanzy Caulkins in the first round, Casias and Wasserburger edged the Port Angles team of Megan Hixson and Danika Goodwin 6-2, 6-4 to advance to the semifinals, where they defeated No. 1 overall seed Darlene Dang and Krista Vestman of North Kitsap 6-4, 6-4.

In the finals Saturday, they beat Cassidy Fairchild and Sam Manwell (Port Angeles) 6-1, 6-4 to secure the championship.
