Ashland High sisters Casey Schein, a junior, and Maggie Schein, a freshman, both advanced to the District 4 singles championship match to help the Grizzlies clinch the league's team title Friday at Churchill High.




Maggie Schein's default prevented a sister versus sister battle in the finals, but both had already clinched a berth in the Class 5A state meet next week. Their semifinal wins also helped Ashland edge Churchill for the team title. The Grizzlies finished with 34 points to Churchill's 27.




In doubles play, Ashland duo Christi Gay and Chloe Deckwar dropped a three-setter to Ami Waples and Alyssa Adkisson, 6-7, 6-3, 7-5 in the semis after clinching a state berth by winning a quarterfinal match on Thursday. Gay and Deckwar bounced back to beat Chloe Swenson and Callyn Adkisson in the third-place match, 7-5, 7-6 (1).




Top-seeded Casey Schein had no trouble in her semifinal match, beating Whitney Lewis of Thurston 6-0, 6-2, while Maggie Schein earned a hard-fought 6-4, 7-6 win over Brittany Banna of Churchill on the other side of the bracket.




The Ashland boys had two semifinalists in the District 4 boys tournament and took second in the team race. Churchill won with 44 points to Ashland's 29.




Ashland's Sean Cleveland and Nick Cross both lost 6-0, 6-0 in the semis. Cleveland went on to beat his teammate in the third-place match, 6-2, 6-0.




Churchill's Chris Wiechert beat teammate Chase Thomet 6-2, 6-4 to claim the boys singles championship.
