Davis girls show Enochs the exit

“They\’re so funny,” Davis High girls tennis coach Sally Hosley says of her team. “They ask before matches, \’Is this going to be easy?\’”

\n

Hosley tells her troops “Expect the unexpected.”

\n

Fortunately for the rampaging Blue Devils, there was nothing unexpected on Monday as the locals posted an 8-1 Sac-Joaquin Section playoff win over visiting Enochs (of Modesto) at the Community Park Tennis Complex.

\n

“(We) played very well today,” Hosley reported. “We had a chance to see a couple of their players in action last week — in the semifinals of the doubles tournament.

\n

“I thought if they (Vanessa Teves and Emily Blair) were their Nos. 1 and 2, we\’d be alright. But it\’s unusual to have a handle on teams from down there.”

\n

With the exception of a marathon match between Naomi Wainwright and Alicia Alava, DHS made quick work of its opponents.

\n

Top seeded Devil Inès Guinard stopped Teves, 6-3, 6-0, and Mari Cajandig beat Blair, 7-5, 6-1.

\n

While Wainwright\’s saga continued — she won the first set 7-5 and lost the second 4-6 — Anna Klavins closed out Jessica Solomon, 6-0, 6-2, and Ceci Cajandig flashed past Felicia Duenas, 6-2, 6-0. Grace Landon rounded out the singles wins by taking down Laura Wilcox, 6-1, 6-0.

\n

Doubles scores — all good for Davis — poured in as a crowd of almost 60 built around the courts.

\n

Blue Devils Briki Cajandig and Caron Miller teamed up to beat Macey Rubia and Monica Poole, 6-1, 6-3. Ginny Hartz and Kelly Chuck had no problems with Olivia Crudo and Marissa Judd, 6-1, 6-0. Meanwhile, Hanna Jolkovsky and Grace Blacker were already in The House, 6-0, 6-0 winners against Carina Estrada and Lauren Case.

\n

Back on Court 3, Wainwright and Alava were getting their second winds as a super tie-breaker had things close early.

\n

Wainwright did a nice job serving and volleying, but Alava was up to the task and kept Wainwright far from the net.

\n

Finally, Alava pulled ahead, winning the decider, 10-2.

\n

Next up for DHS is a Wednesday home match against the winner of St. Mary\’s versus Oak Ridge.

\n

Notes: So how is veteran local tennis instructor Sally Hosley enjoying her first season with the Blue Devils? “On a scale of 1-to-10? An eleven!,” she reports. “Really, you develop into a life coach. Tennis is third or fourth on the priority list. You don\’t (know) if you will develop a bond, because they\’re not your kids. But two to three weeks in, you\’re vested. This has been a pleasant surprise.” … Hosley replaced Paul Ochs, who retired after 34 years at the girls\’ helm. Ochs was on hand Monday.
