SPOKANE — Skagit Valley collected five singles title matches and two doubles titles to claim the 2013 team tennis championship Saturday in Spokane under sunny conditions.

The Cardinals outscored second place Bellevue, who claimed two titles of their own, 136-100. Spokane finished a close third with 96 pts followed by a distant Treasure Valley with 28 pts.

Skagit Valley’s title snapped a 8 year championship run by Bellevue led by head coach Jason Chapman.

Bellevue’s Rixing Xu cruised to an easy victory over Skagit Valley’s Sarah Tuemmler 6-0. 6-0 to claim the #1 singles championship.

Tuemmler did get the best of Xu earlier in the day when she and teammate Christa Spitler defeated Xu and Sadie Dedon 6-4, 6-4 to take the #1 doubles championship.

Skagit Valley coach Kim Sommerville was named the Women’s Coach of the Year.
