Blue Devils cage Cardinals in final DVC tennis matchup

From page B1 | October 25, 2013 |

After the Davis High girls tennis team faced Laguna Creek on Thursday, Blue Devil mentor Sally Hosley commented that what the local girls need for success in the postseason is confidence.

Certainly then, DHS’ shutout victory over the Cardinals at the Community Park Tennis Complex was the right prescription.

Thursday’s contest also marked the end of the Delta Valley Conference slate for the Devils.

Playing at No. 1 singles, Davis junior Cat Paw U seemed to especially breeze past her opponent in a 6-0, 6-0 victory.

The stunning power behind the local standout’s serve had her opponent muttering an audible, “Whoa,” on at least one occasion.

Similarly convincing singles wins came in from DHS No. 2 Lauren Duan (6-1, 6-0), No. 3 Marlena Angermann (6-0, 6-1), No. 4 Jenna Mould (6-0, 6-1) and No. 5 Katherine Murdoch (6-0, 6-1).

Senior Cat Archer, in what will be her final Blue Devil appearance in a regular-season matchup, signed off with a 6-1, 6-2 win in the No. 6 singles spot.

In doubles action, No. 1 Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming were the first pair to step off the court with an untouched 6-0, 6-0 victory.

Soon to follow were triumphs from No. 2 partners Maya McHale and Angela Donahue (6-1, 6-2) as well as DHS’ No. 3 duo Maggie Whittemore and MacKenzie Quick (6-0, 6-1).

But there’s no respite for the Devils, whose postseason begins Tuesday as some of the singles standouts will compete in the DVC individual tournament at the Community Park Tennis Complex.

Davis’ best doubles teams get their turn on Wednesday in the league’s equivalent doubles tournament also at home. The top finishers get a spot in the Sac-Joaquin Section’s singles and doubles tourneys set for early November.

“Players from Del Oro and Oak Ridge are going to be strong,” Hosley said. “St. Mary’s and Granite Bay are also tough competitors, and worth watching out for.”

The section individual event begins the same week as the SJS team tournament. The Blue Devils took second in 2012 and qualified for the NorCal Regionals, a finish Hosley expects to match or better this season:

“On any given day, we can be a very strong squad and play our best. And then again, on any given day we may not leave it all out on the court.”
