LOOMIS — The three Davis High girls tennis wins were each impressive on Thursday, but it wasn’t enough as host Del Oro posted a 6-3 victory over the Blue Devils.

Singles wins by Cat Paw U at No. 4 and Marlena Angermann at No. 5 earned praise from DHS coach Sally Hosley, while the Devils’ No. 2 doubles team — Katherine Murdoch and Carina Hinton — defeated a Golden Eagle duo that had beaten Davis last week at the Fresno High School Classic.

“Cat Paw U was nails … won 6-4, 6-4 (and) Marlena Angermann destroyed her opponent, 6-0, 6-1,” Hosley said. “Katherine Murdoch and Carina Hinton did fabulous. They beat a strong team easily … 6-4, 6-1. They play very well together and communicate nicely.”

The locals had several other matches come down to the wire as freshman Lauren Duen dropped a three-set affair as did doubles teams of Elena Neale-Sacks/Sherry Zheng and Megan Ewens/Angela Fleming at No. 1.

That match was “a heartbreaker,” according to Hosley as the top Blue Devil duo lost the opening set in a tiebreaker and won the second set 6-1 before losing the third.

“They had several match points … but they just couldn’t close out the match,” Hosley said. “They learned a hard lesson: It’s hard to win a match when you try not to lose.

“I think after (Thursday’s) match, we saw the importance of focusing on our third-set tiebreakers. To lose all three was excruciating. This is why we play tough preseason matches. We face strong players that push us to play our best, and we need that early in the season.”

That trend continues next week as DHS plays road matches at Rocklin (Tuesday) and Oak Ridge (Thursday).
