Dreams of the Davis High girls sweeping through the Delta Valley Conference tennis doubles tournament turned into a Halloween eve nightmare Wednesday as all three teams failed to reach the final.

Like the plot of a bad slasher film, the Blue Devil duos were eliminated one by one.

The No. 3 tandem of Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming was dispatched 6-4, 6-0 in the quarterfinals by Franklin’s No. 1 squad. Ewens and Fleming won their opening match 6-3, 2-6 (10-0) against Elk Grove’s No. 3.

DHS’ No. 2 team of Marlena Angermann and Jenna Mould started well, knocking off Laguna Creek 6-0, 6-1 to open the tournament. All continued to look well in the quarterfinal match, as the Blue Devil couple topped Franklin’s No. 2 squad, 6-2, 6-2.

And then just when they thought it was safe to get back on the court, they ran into the buzz saw that is Franklin’s No. 1 duo and fell 7-6, 6-1.

And then there was Davis’ No. 1 doubles squad of Kailynn Yang and Angela Donahue. Seeded No. 1 in the tournament, the Blue Devil combination dominated early play.

In the quarterfinals, they topped Elk Grove’s No. 2 squad 6-3, 6-0.

Cruising to a 6-0 lead over Elk Grove’s No. 1 duo in a semifinal match, it appeared the Blue Devils would sail into the finals.

However, leading 3-1 in the second, Yang stretched for a ball, landed awkwardly and apparently pulled a leg muscle. Unable to finish the match, DHS was forced to withdraw.

With all three teams failing to advance, there will be no DHS doubles team at the section individual championships.

DHS coach Sally Hosley now focuses on the Sac-Joaquin Section team tournament that begins on Tuesday. It is unknown whether Yang will be cleared to play.
