State championships concluded over the weekend for the prep spring season and Bellevue, Interlake, Newport, Forest Ridge and Bellevue Christian each returned with hardware.
Michelle Lui won her first state title as a freshman in 2011 and repeated that feat in last weekend, winning both games in each of her four matches to capture the 1B/2B/1A state title for the second straight year.
Newport duo Angela Chen and Amie Vo swept through each of their four matches en route to the 4A girls doubles title, finishing with a win over Kamiak's Alyssa and Jenna Gilbert.
The Knights had two doubles teams reach the semi-finals on the boys side, but both Chris Lilley and Dylan Harlow and Alec Tsutsumoto and Andrew Choi lost and faced one another in their final match, with Lilley and Harlow capturing third place.
