Davis\’ Guinard moves on at sections

\n

ELK GROVE — Something was a little off when the Sac-Joaquin Section decided on the seeding for their individual championship tournament.

\n

Davis High\’s singles representative, Inés Guinard who took second place in the Delta Valley Conference tournament behind Laguna Creek\’s Tiffany Pham, was unseeded. Pham was ranked No. 2, but the No. 3 seed was Pleasant Grove\’s Bridget Guenard.

\n

Just one problem, the Blue Devils\’ Guinard defeated the Eagles\’ Guenard, 6-4, 6-4, during DHS\’ 9-0 win over Pleasant Grove in the team playoffs on Tuesday. But the drama didn\’t end there, the two similarly named stars were matched up in a first-round contest on Thursday at the Laguna Creek Racquet Club.

\n

Davis\’ Guinard proceed to make her point on the court, defeating Guenard handily, 6-0, 6-2.

\n

“She was way fired up,” DHS coach Sally Hosley said. “I think she was a bit disgruntled because she was seeded behind a girl she has just beaten. But I think that almost brought her level of play up.”

\n

Guinard stayed at that level in the quarterfinal round as she pounded Sinclair Waldran, 6-1, 6-0, to advances to today\’s semifinals. The DHS standout is looking to pull an upset against Pham.

\n

While Guinard was playing singles, two Devil doubles teams were also in action at the first day of the section individual championships.

\n

DHS\’ Mari Cajandig and Naomi Wainwright struggled past a team from Tracy, 6-2, 7-5, in the first round, before coming to life in the quarterfinals. Their 6-0, 6-1 win over Jackie Lord and Anna Adams of Lodi propelled them into today\’s semifinals, where they will face St. Francis\’ Madeleine Verspieren and Linsay Bonoval.

\n

“I think they were still asleep in the first match, which started at 9 a.m., but they clearly woke up around 10:15,” Hosley said. “That was the real Naomi and Mari. They are both very understated, but I think they plan on winning (the title).”

\n

Mari wasn\’t the only Cajandig on the court Thursday as sister Briki teamed with Caron Miller on another doubles team. The pair — which is an actual doubles team during regular season play as opposed to most of the squads at the event which are made up of two of another schools\’ top singles players — fell in a three-set first-round match.

\n

A team from West of Modesto defeated the DHS duo, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2

\n

“They communicate very well and compliment each other,” said Hosley, who noted that Cajandig is good at the backline, while Miller excels at the net. “That is what they did very well in the second set. It wasn\’t their best day on the court, they were a little tentative. But good for them for getting this far.”
