After reaching the semifinals and eventually placing fourth out of 16 teams in the Division II portion of the Fresno High School Classic in Fresno this weekend, Davis High girls tennis coach Sally Hosley liked what she saw.

“Overall, I was very impressed with how the girls competed,” Hosley said. “They played five tough matches over the two-day period with extreme heat. If this is any indication of how our season is going to progress, then I think we’ll do just fine.”

The Blue Devils started strong, winning all three of their matches on Friday.

Loa Alamitos fell first, 5-1, as Kailynn Yang, Angela Donahue and Lauren Duan all won tough singles matches. Other DHS victories came at No. 2 doubles — Katherine Murdoch and Angela Flemming — and No. 3 doubles, where Jenna Mould and Marlena Angermann teamed up.

In a 5-1 win over Los Gatos, Donahue and Duan captured singles decisions while Cat Paw U and Mould cruised at No. 1 doubles. Additionally, the duo of Flemming and Murdoch battled for a three-set win at No. 2 and partners Megan Ewens and Carina Hinton made short work of their opponents at No. 3 doubles.

Playing in 100-degree heat in the third match of the day, the Devils tied Del Oro, 3-3, then got the win based on sets. Duan and the duos of Paw U/Mould and Ewens/Angermann posted the Davis victories.

That set up a Saturday morning semifinal match against Arroyo Grande but, despite another win by Duan, the locals lost 5-1.

The third-place match against Oak Ridge ended in a 3-3 tie but the Trojans edged DHS on 67-53 on games to send the Blue Devils into fourth place.

Each of the contests that ended in ties will be settled this week as Davis has a home matchup with Oak Ridge on Wednesday (3:30 p.m.) and heads to Del Oro for a Thursday encounter.
