UPDATE: The tennis tournament has been delayed by rain earlier this morning out at Mount Si, and matches have been pushed back to 2 p.m. (instead of a 10 a.m. start). The courts at Mount Si High School have lights, so matches will be played into the evening. The links below have the updated schedule.

And the post season begins …

The Mercer Island boys tennis team begins the run to state this week, with the KingCo tournament at Mount Si High School, starting on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
