Nov 8 – Acalanes Lady Dons Tennis DFAL Results

DFAL – Lady Dons Tennis

2nd in Singles and 3rd in Doubles

Our seeded Lady Dons represented Acalanes High School extremely well at the DFAL Girls’ Varsity Tennis Championships. In the semis, Isabella von Ebbe dispatched Miramonte’s Taylor James in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 to reach the finals, where she ran up against now-four time DFAL champion Rickimae Torres. Isabella played two very competitive sets to finish second in the tournament. Well done, Bella.

Our number three seeded doubles duo of Tessa Karagocev and Melissa Van Pell dropped two close sets to the number two seeds from Dougherty Valley, but went out winners in the consolation match over Miramonte’s D-1 team. What could have been Tessa’s last set as a Lady Don was a 6-0 thing of beauty with Melissa providing great support.
