Nov 7 – Acalanes Girls Tennis Advance in DFAL Championships

Varsity Girls Tennis

The seeded Lady Dons all advanced to the semi-finals of the DFAL Girls’ Tennis Championship. Isabella von Ebbe, the #2 seed, got by Camille Hortillas from Las Lomas in the second round 6-0, 6-0. In the third round Bella defeated Zoe Grenville, also from Las Lomas, 6-0,6-4. On the doubles side, the #3 seeds, Melissa Van Pell and Tessa Karagocev knocked off Campolindo’s Sierra Ramer and Calli Cunningham, 6-0, 6-3. In the third round they faced another Ramer, Claire and her partner Anjali Majumdar from Miramonte and won 6-3, 6-2.

Our unseeded Lady Dons played very competitively against tough first round opponents. The 8-game pro set format is different and doesn’t give us the opportunity to adjust and come back as we have in the 3-set format. However, Skylar Jeveli and Fernanda Heredia forced their opponents to a tiebreaker at 9-8.
