ROCKLIN — Wins by Lauren Duan and Jenna Mould, along with a pair of doubles victories, still weren’t quite enough for a short-handed Davis High girls tennis squad on Monday at Rocklin.

Playing without No. 3 singles player Angela Donahue, who was ill, the Blue Devils dropped a 5-4 decision to the Thunder.

Because of how close the match was, coach Sally Hosley said a rematch could easily go DHS’ way.

“Rocklin is a tough team and there’s a strong chance that we might see them in the (Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs),” Hosley said. “If so, I have confidence that we will be on the winning end.”

In addition to singles wins by Duan (6-4, 7-6) and Mould (6-0, 6-3), Devils’ two doubles victories were impressive. Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming beat Rocklin’s top duo, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, while Carina Hinton teamed with Elena Neal-Sacks for a 6-2, 3-6, 10-6 triumph at No. 3.

“Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming did a wonderful job. They sailed through the first set, let down a bit the second set, but fought back hard to win the third. They had to dig deep to win their match,” Hosley said. “I was also proud of Carina Hinton and Elena Neal-Sacks. This was the first time they played together and they seemed to blend well as partners. They communicated and strategized to win the final set.”

The Blue Devils jump back into Delta Valley Conference play on Tuesday, hosting Franklin at 3:45 p.m.
