Olympic’s Marissa Nemeth captures Olympic League singles title

POULSBO — After four years, the Olympic League finally has a new singles champion, and the trophy remains in Kitsap County.

Olympic senior Marissa Nemeth defeated North Kitsap freshman Karly Rojas, 6-4, 6-2, to capture the title. They advance to the district tournament next weekend as the No. 1 and 2 seeds out of the league.

The Trojans also had their top doubles pair of Sydney Troy and Emry Bohlman reach the finals, but they finished second after losing 6-2, 6-3, to Jessica Dietzman and Kalli Wiker of Sequim.

North Kitsap’s top two doubles pairs will both advance to districts after meeting one another in the third/fourth place match. The pair of Geneva Newell and Noelani Barreith prevailed 6-6 (2-7), 6-6 (7-3), 6-4 over teammates Grace Hansen and Jamison Jacobson.

Kingston’s Montana Thoroughman and Olympic’s Ryleigh Barrett, finishing fifth and sixth respectively, will serve as alternates for the district singles tournament.

Olympic doubles pair Kaylan Riley and DJ Cherrey will also be alternates.
