The Mercer Island High School boys tennis team finished the KingCo tournament with both the doubles and singles KingCo titles.

Jordan Smith brought home the singles championship after beating Leo Gebhardt 6-0, 6-2 in the title match. The Islanders doubles team of Max Franklin-Andrew Smith beat Bellevue's Zach Kosanke-Colin Dresser 6-4, 5-7 and 7-5 to earn their own title. All four of the top finishers at the KingCo event earn state berths for the tournament, held in the spring.

The second Mercer Island doubles team of Matt Sedlacek-Jared Thomas also earned a place at state after their third place finish at KingCo. They beat Ben Liang-Eugene Chon of Bellevue 6-1 and 6-1 for the win.

The team's final player in the tournament, Zack Elliot, will finish with a game tonight to decide whether or not the freshman will make his first state appearance in high school.
