Blue Devils down Franklin girls on the court

Davis High rolled past visiting Franklin, 8-1, in another powerful Delta Valley Conference girls tennis display on Thursday at the Community Park Tennis Complex.

With No. 1 singles player Inés Guinard getting a breather, eight Blue Devils won in straight sets as the locals went to 7-0 in league.

While the victory isn’t a surprise to area court fans, the versatility and depth of DHS has even its coach Sally Hosley all smiles.

“Our doubles were very strong,” the veteran mentor explained. “For the most part, our singles were focused, too. This is our first match where we had a little inclimate weather, even a couple of raindrops.”

As Davis was making quick work of the Wildcats, both schools had to battle increasing breezes and temperatures that dropped under 60 degrees by match’s end.

Blue Devil Kaitlynn Yang was especially pesky for FHS No. 2 Jenny Xue. Moving her opponent all over the place, Yang won 6-2, 6-0.

The devastating duo of Kelly Chuck and Bailey Gary dispatched FHS’ Dana Little and Betsy Li, 6-1, 6-0.

Eliana Jolkovsky and Kiki Tanaka were as inhospitable with their guests, beating Kota Lum and Lara Lam, 6-2, 6-1.

The third Devil doubles team — Marlena Angermann and Carina Hinton — rolled to a 6-0, 6-0 decision.

Sixth-seed singles player Cat Archer took down Julie Wong, 6-2, 6-4, while DHS’ No. 4 Angela Donahue topped Sharon Hsu in a strong showing, 6-0, 6-0.

Ceci Cajandig was too much for Courtney Fong, as the play-anywhere Blue Devil won 6-2, 6-0. Cajandig, as Davis fans know, also is an accomplished doubles partner.

Jenna Mould, despite a hard-fought outing, lost 6-4, 2-6 (7-10) to Sophia Tatt.

So, is DHS where Hosley hoped it would be with postseason team and individual tournaments coming up in two weeks?

“Yes,” Hosley answered, then thought again. “Actually, we’re ahead of where I thought. We are playing better than I’d hoped we’d be.”

Next up for the Devils will be a last DVC match at Laguna Creek on Thursday. Davis has a bye on Tuesday.

Then, on Oct. 23 the league singles competition starts at Laguna Creek Racquet Club. On Oct. 25, doubles play begins at the same location.
