Shoreline Community College’s Yasser Khan swept away the NWAACC competition in the annual tennis jamboree held in Yakima this past Saturday. On his way to the Men’s Singles final, he warmed up his game by easily trouncing his three opponents in eight game pro sets. In the final, he overwhelmed his very fine Spokane opponent, Rylan Herdt, with an amazing display of shot making. Final score Khan 8 and Herdt 0. “I was astounded tha
t Yasser could play so well in such windy conditions” said Shoreline’s head tennis coach, Ray Bachmann. “He was awesome. It was like he wanted to show everyone watching that he was the best in the league. He certainly was today.”
Khan went on to play the Doubles final with his partner, Alex Casper. Last year’s Men’s Doubles champions again proved they are still the NWAACC’s best doubles team by beating the very strong Spokane team of Hahn and Steiver 8-6.The NWAACC Fall Jamboree concludes the fall tennis pre-season. Shorelines Coach Ray Bachmann and his staff want to extend an invitation to interested Shoreline students, women and men, to participate in the tennis team program.
