Sep 22 – Girls JV Tennis
Acalanes 3 – Northgate 1
Playing in our opening Diablo Athletic League match, the JV Lady Dons came away with a 3-1 win over Northgate High.
Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay played a really competitive match at D-1. Although it is a cliché to say that the match was closer than the score would indicate, in today’s action it was true. While Shannon and Lauren recorded an 8-1 win, they played a number of hotly contested points and games on their way to the first Dons’ win of the day.
At D-2, Captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson, took control of their match and played consistently well in recording our second point with an 8-2 win.
Teaming for the first time this season, Molly Cronk and Milena Lucey communicated effectively and covered the court well to secure an 8-2 win.
Lady Dons Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini were matched against a team of Northgate varsity players, who “doubled back” to play a second match. Skyler and Niki competed well throughout.
JV Sophia Scipi “played up” in a varsity doubles exhibition match with Lia Swan. Lia and Sophia were also paired for the first time and played a really competitive match racking up another Acalanes win by the score of 8-5.
