Most of the contests were lopsided as usual as the Davis High girls tennis team played a Delta Valley Conference home match against Elk Grove on Tuesday.

Top player Inés Guinard cruised 6-0, 6-0 and the Blue Devils’ No. 1 doubles squad — Bailey Gary and Kelly Chuck — had to play just three games before their opponents retired. But even in the 9-0 DHS victory, there was a chance to watch some competitive tennis at No. 2 doubles.

In that matchup, the local team of Megan Ewens and Eliana Jolkovsky needed an extra game to take the first set (7-5) from Thundering Herd players Abby Scmiedt and Sarah Lack. Then the Elk Grove duo captured the second set, 6-3, to force a tiebreaker. Even that was close but the Devils finally prevailed, 10-8.

Other singles winners for Davis included Cat Paw U, Kailynn Yang, Ceci Cajandig, Angela Donahue and Jenna Mould, while Jasmin Mould and Cat Archer teamed up at No. 3 doubles for the Blue Devils’ other victory.

UCD women’s golf

Aggie freshman Andrea Wong had three birdies over her first four holes on her way to a 1-under 71 in Tuesday’s second round, as No. 7 UCD moved into second place at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational at the University of Washington.

The Aggies fired a tournament-best 292 on Tuesday, cutting 10 strokes off their first-round score, and were at 18-over 594 after 36 holes. UCD trails No. 6 Washington (586) by eight shots.

Stanford, ranked 40th and coached by former Aggie coach Anne Walker, is in fourth (607).

Wong’s 71 was UCD’s best round of the event so far, and left her in a tie for eighth at 3-over. Senior Demi Runas had another strong day, shooting 73, and was also tied for eighth.

Aggie senior Amy Simanton was in a tie for 14th at 6-over after her second straight 75, while sophomore Beverly Vatananugulkit matched Runas with a 73 and was tied for 19th at 7-over. Freshman Raegan Bremer, competing in her first tournament as an Aggie, had a 78 Tuesday, and was tied for 30th at 11-over 155.

UCD was tied for fourth after Monday’s first round but beat Washington’s 293 in each round for the lowest score of the 16-team tournament. The Aggies and Huskies were the only teams to break 300 on Tuesday.
