The Dos Pueblos girls tennis team lost 13-5 Friday to JSerra before a home crowd.
“We knew this team was going to be tough after looking at their record and seeding in the draw,” Coach Laura Housinger told the News-Press in an email. “My girls came out to play with focus and intensity, putting it all out there on the court. I am glad they played well and put their best effort in today.”
The Chargers’ Kate Scherz lost her first match, but won the next two: 1-6, 6-3, 6-0.
Ellie Triplett lost two matches but won her final one: 2-6, 3-6, 6-0.
Camilla Fonoberov won her first match but lost the next two: 6-2, 0-6, 0-6.
In doubles, the Chargers’ Taryn Sager/ Saned Crespo lost their matches, 0-6, 4-6.
Romy Greenwald/ Olivia Simon lost two matches but won the final one: 1-6, 0-6, 6-1.
Adriel Amador/ Sophia Fenkner lost their matches 1-6, 4-6.
Abby Bentley lost 1-6; Brighton Amador lost 0-6.
But they all displayed a winning spirit in their coach’s eyes.
“Our scores didn’t show how close some of the matches were in the end,” Housinger said. “ But I think the girls ended their season in a positive way. We have grown a lot as a team and to end with a tough match like this shows we have a lot more ahead next year.”
