Prep boys tennis: Royals fall to Scots

Despite a win in the No. 1 singles’ match, the Lynnwood Royals couldn’t keep pace with the deep Shorecrest Scots, falling to the Scots 6-1 in Wesco League boys tennis action on Wednesday.

Lynnwood’s Nico Desgrippes earned a victory over Shorecrest’s Ben Silber 6-3, 6-1 in No. 1 singles competition, but it was the only win the Royals picked up in the dual match held at Lynnwood High School.

Lynnwood will be back on their home courts on Thursday, Sept. 26, when they host the winless Mountlake Terrace Hawks; first serves are set for 3:30 p.m.
