DELAYED POST : Girls Varsity Tennis Exits NCS TEAM tourney amidst sadness of Bay Area smokey skies

 The  Dons traveled out to battle against the #2 seed  Amador Valley  under smoke filled skies in Round 2 of the NCS Team Championships.

 Unfortunately, the Dons lost 3-4 against Amador,  but it was a long hard fight with several matches going 3 sets.

In Singles, Eliza Bates, Sydney Bell, and Jasmine Toni came up with wins against some tough opponents.

 

 

 Sydney  came back to win her match after being down 4-1 in the first set.

 Eliza stayed on top during her match mixing up her game nicely.

Jasmine ended up winning her match in a 3rd set tiebreaker and had some of the longest rallies during the day. 

Zoe Cate fell to her opponent but came up with some excellent shot-making at the net.

In Doubles, at line 3, Kristen Campbell and Aly Sweeney kept coming back in their match but unfortunately lost a close one, 4 and 5.

At line 1, the Warenski’shad a tough day at the office.

At line 2, Vivian Toni and Madi Price went to three sets falling 5-7 in the third. They fought very hard knowing that they might be the deciding match.

 Madi P. came up with some great volleys at the net and played aggressive when the time presented itself.

Arguably, one of the most versatile players this year for the Dons, she gets the Dons Player of the Match. Nice job Madi!

Congratulations to the entire Varsity team this year it was a GREAT SEASON.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO OUR COACHES   DREW , MIKE AND JULIE !

Eliza Bates will continue her high school tennis in the NCS Singles  tournament once weather permits
