Mirror selects All-City Tennis Team

The All-City Tennis Team features some of the best players in the South Puget Sound League, if not the entire state.

The strength of the all-city team is in four doubles players who advanced to the West Central District Tournament next spring.

The No. 1 doubles team on the All-City team are Decatur seniors Gus Joo and Neil Upsahl. Joo and Upsahl played as Decatur’s No. 1 doubles team. They were subdistrict champions after going undefeated in regular season play.

Their only loss this year was to last year’s state champions in the league finals. Joo and Upsahl earned the SPSL’s No. 2 seed to the West Central District tournament. In addition to all-city honors, both were SPSL first-team selections.

Jefferson seniors Aaron Cho and Saun Lund are the No. 2 doubles pair on the All-City Team. Cho and Lund were Jefferson’s No. 1 doubles team. Both are all-league first team selections and the SPSL’s No. 3 seed to West Central Districts. They were subdistrict runners up, losing only to Joo and Upsahl in the subdistrict finals.

The No. 3 doubles pair on the All-City team is Jefferson seniors Aaron Michnick and Michael Brezina. Michnick and Brezina were Jefferson’s No. 2 doubles team. As such, they compiled a 25-1 career SPSL record. Brezina set Jefferson’s all-time records in winning percentage for league (96.4 percent) and overall (83.7 percent).

The No. 1 singles player on the All-City Team is Decatur junior Brandon Abang. Abang was Decatur’s No. 1 singles player. He was an all-league first team selection.

Jefferson senior Peter Harker was the Raiders’ No. 1 singles player. He compiled a 7-3 singles record and earned all-league honorable mention.
