Bremerton sophomore Casias closing in on berth to state tennis tournament

Bremerton High School sophomore Bre Casias is one win away from advancing to the Class 3A state girls tennis tournament.

Casias entered districts as a No. 1 seed from the Olympic League, but she lost an opening round match Tuesday at Sprinker Recreation Center in Tacoma to Felicia Doubek of Kennedy High School.

Casias took a 5-7, 6-1, 6-0 consolation victory Thursday over Helen Tam of Union High School. This puts her in a winner-to-state, loser-out match, to be played Friday or Saturday depending on weather.

"She started out kind of slow," Bremerton coach Casey Lindberg said of Casias in her come-from-behind victory Thursday, adding Tam appeared to tire in the second and third sets. "She got worn down a bit, but it definitely wasn't an easy win."

Casias was scheduled to play at 1:30 p.m. Friday, but Lindberg said the match was pushed back until 3:30 p.m. and could be bumped to Saturday.
