Despite playing mix-and-match with its lineup, the Davis High girls tennis team dismantled Franklin, 7-2, on Tuesday at the Community Park Tennis Complex.

In capturing their third straight Delta Valley Conference match, to remain unbeaten in league play, the Blue Devils won all but one of their matches in both singles and doubles, each time in straight sets.

“(Tuesday) was nice because I was able to have some of my players who might not normally play in a match be able to play in singles and doubles,” DHS coach Sally Hosley said after the match.

One of those players was Devil sophomore Sherry Zheng, who was slotted at No. 6 singles. Though she eventually lost her match 1-6, 7-5 (11-9), Zheng performed admirably in a hard-fought battle with her Wildcat opponent.

“Sherry Zheng played well,” Hosley said. “She’s very competitive and was able to really show that during her three-set match.”

Davis’ No. 2 singles player, Kailynn Yang, took her match without dropping a game, getting a quick and efficient, 6-0, 6-0, victory, while Lauren Duan was nearly as ruthless, winning 6-1, 6-0.

Blue Devil No. 1 Cat Paw U as well as No. 4 Jenna Mould each won 6-1, 6-2, and Megan Angermann rounded out the singles victories, 6-1, 7-5, at No. 5.

DHS’ top two doubles teams both won their matches by large margins as Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming took a 6-1, 6-0 decision at No. 1 and Katherine Murdoch teamed with Cat Archer for a 6-0, 6-2 win at No. 2.

“What I see mostly (with) the girls that are (in the normal lineup), when you play someone that’s not at your skill level, oftentimes you start playing down,” Hosley said. “But what was really nice (Tuesday) was that everybody stayed true to their game, and stayed competitive in their matches.”

Even though the locals won the match in such dominating fashion, Hosley did see some areas that needed work:

“We still need to work on serving; there’s a lot of double faults,” Hosley added. “We need to work on putting away volleys for doubles teams … there’s always something to work on.”

With no matches the rest of the week, the Devils will have plenty of time to work on all of those issues. Davis’ schedule resumes next Tuesday with a 3:45 p.m. match at Laguna Creek, another DVC foe.
