Bellingham Athletic Club

2014 WA State Singles

About ten members of BAC’s Racquetball community made the trip to Tacoma for the 2014 State Singles Racquetball Tournament! We had a lot of fun and played a lot of racquetball. Two of our juniors in particular had an amazing weekend! Sixteen year old Jake Birnel & Fifteen year old Hollie Scott, two of our juniors who we’ve been watching grow on the court since they were about 5 years old each came home with the title of Washington State Champions in the men’s and women’s open divisions.  Jake beat Jeff Stark in a tie-breaker 11-10. It really doesn’t get any better than that. It was the epitome of a nail biter match and the level of enthusiasm was fantastic. I am pretty sure that EVERYONE was rooting for Jake. The crowd was full of smiles, and cheer.  Hollie beat Cheyenne Hayes in 2 games. She was in control of the game the entire time. BAC could not be more proud of these two. They both hold such poise on the court and are outstanding athletes! We are definitely proud to have Jake and Hollie as part of our club. If you see them around, be sure to congratulate them on their wins, and if you ever get a chance to watch them play, I highly recommend it!
