While the Davis High girls tennis team won a Delta Valley Conference match 7-2 on Thursday at the Community Park Tennis Complex, they at least had to work at it.

The windy conditions and the presence of Elk Grove — the Blue Devils’ best competition when it comes to DVC play — meant the locals had to focus to get the job done.

But they did just that, sweeping all three doubles matches and winning four of the six singles encounters. All but one of the victories came in straight sets.

“(Elk Grove) has some tough players and most matches were fairly competitive,” said DHS coach Sally Hosley. “It was our first windy match and my girls were not too happy … (but) once I reminded them that it was also windy on Elk Grove’s side of the court, they seemed to settle down and focus on their matches.

“It was great to see all three doubles teams come together and be successful.”

The Devils’ top duo of Megan Ewens and Angela Fleming cruised (6-4, 6-1) as did Sherry Zheng and Grace Kaplan, who won 6-3, 6-3 at No. 3. Davis’ No. 2 squad — Katherine Murdoch/Cat Archer — needed three sets, but managed to prevail, 6-4, 4-6, (10-8).

In singles, No. 2 Cat Paw U disposed of her opponent quickly, 6-2, 6-1, and No. 3 Angela Donahue had no trouble in a 6-4, 6-3 victory. In addition, Lauren Duan triumphed 6-3, 6-4 at No. 4, and No. 5 player Jenna Mould finished strong in a 6-4, 6-0 win.
