Del Oro knows it better than anyone — a meeting with the Davis High girls tennis team is like a war of attrition.

The Golden Eagles got a win at No. 1 singles, but came up short in every other match and fell 8-1 as the Blue Devils flashed their trademark depth on Tuesday at the Community Park Tennis Complex.

It was DHS’ second 8-1 victory over Del Oro this season. This time around, however, the result propelled the Devils to the quarterfinals of the Sac-Joaquin Section tournament.

In the quarters on Monday, Davis will face a Rocklin squad that took down Turlock, 8-1, Tuesday.

“(Rocklin) has a very strong team, very strong doubles,” Blue Devil coach Sally Hosley reported.

But after Tuesday’s performance, the locals should enter the quarterfinals with tons of confidence.

DHS went 5-1 in singles, with Cat Paw U, Kailynn Yang, Ceci Cajandig, Angela Donahue and Jenna Mould all winning in straight sets.

The doubles teams were even more dominant, sweeping the Golden Eagles with ease. The No. 1 duo, Kelly Chuck and Bailey Gary, won 6-2, 6-0, while Megan Ewens and Eliana Jolkovsky captured a 6-3, 6-2 victory at No. 2 and Jasmin Mould and Cat Archer finished off Del Oro’s No. 3 squad, 6-4, 6-2.

“I was very proud of all my doubles teams. They started out strong,” Hosley said. “Sometimes they’ll come in, win the first set, and then kind of take a little nap in the second set, so I have to tell them ‘when you start the second set, pretend like it’s the first set.’ So I was thrilled.”

Though the Blue Devils were already leading 7-0 and safely into the quarterfinals when the third set started, the No. 1 matchup between Inés Guinard and her Del Oro counterpart Abby Bacharach was an entertaining battle. Bacharach eventually prevailed 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.

“(Guinard and Bacharach) are always going to have tough matches,” Hosley said. “This was their second three-set match this year, so they’re very even. They’re very competitive with each other. So you kind of expect (a close match).”

It was Yang, however, who played the longest match of the day. Her opponent refused to go down easily at the end, keeping several long rallies alive in Yang’s surprisingly drawn-out 6-0, 6-1 win.
