Devils lose to eventual champs

By
November 6, 2010 |

The Davis High girls tennis team was well-represented on Friday, the final day of the Sac-Joaquin Section singles and doubles championships at Laguna Racquet Club, but the Blue Devils each fell to the eventual title-winners.

\n

In doubles, the defending section champion duo of Mari Cajandig and Naomi Wainwright won their semifinal match, 6-4, 6-4 over a team from Enochs, to reach the finals.

\n

There, St. Francis\’ squad of Ashlyn Schmitgen and Tessa Sandoval jumped out early and finished strong in a 6-0, 6-4 win over the DHS\’ pair.

\n

“They were just outplayed and overpowered,” Devil head coach Sally Hosley said. “Surly they could have played stronger, I\’ve seen them play much better, but it wasn\’t happening for them

\n

(Friday).

\n

“Mari and Naomi are singles players at heart so they are much more accustomed to staying back and having long rallies. You have to adjust when you are playing against doubles teams who are trying to end points quickly at the net.”

\n

Singles play saw DHS sophomore Inés Guinard fall in the semis against a familiar opponent, junior Tiffany Pham of Laguna Creek. In a rematch of the Delta Valley Conference singles championship, Pham prevailed 6-3, 6-2, on her way to capturing the section title.

\n

“The score doesn\’t really reflect the match. It was very competitive and Inés was in every point,” Hosley said. “Tiffany is a really strong player, but Inés put up good fight. She felt good about way she played.”

\n

The Blue Devils are still very much alive in the Sac-Joaquin team playoffs, as they will host Enochs at 2 p.m. Monday at the Community Park Tennis Complex. A victory on Monday sets up a Wednesday home match against the winner of Oak Ridge and St. Mary\’s, with a trip to Friday\’s section finals on the line.
