Oct 30 – JV Girls Tennis – Campolindo 8 – Acalanes 2
The Lady Dons completed their 2014 campaign by playing a fine match in a losing effort at Campolindo. Although Campo recorded an 8-2 win most of the lines were close 8-6 or 8-5 losses. All of the Acalanes lines competed hard throughout the match.
Playing at D-2, Maddie Guzaitis and Kelianne Witt continued their winning ways. Maddie and Keli jumped out to a quick 4-1 advantage, but slowed down in the middle of the match to let Campo back in at 5-4. At this point the the Lady Dons regrouped and powered their way to an 8-5 victory. Our D-3 combo of Allie Figueredo and Samantha Bell had the reverse experience. Down 5-2 and 6-3, they made adjustments to their game and virtually eliminated the unforced errors that got them into the hole. Playing terrific team tennis, Sam and Allie won five straight games to prevail 8-6. Playing for the first time together at D-9, Claire Terentieff and Sally Tang took their opponents to a tiebreaker which Campo won 8-6.
Although the final score against Campo is the same as our first match, the individual set scores were much closer and the overall match had a more competitive feel. Once again, as they have all season, the Lady Dons JV Tennis team represented Acalanes High School wonderfully well.
