GONZALES — The Robert Louis Stevenson Pirate tennis team swept the Gonzales singles and doubles team 7-0 last Monday afternoon in Pebble Beach. The Spartans managed just two points in the singles matches but played well in two of the doubles matches. Yesterday Gonzales hosted Oakwood and will travel to Pacific Grove tomorrow for a match with the Breakers.
“Played the best team in the league, who have very strong single players,” said Gonzales head coach Rene Mendez. “The doubles played well but just weren’t able to break through for the win. Athena (Landeros), played the best player in the league and she hung in there gamely, but her opponent was just too strong. In doubles Adilienne Ramirez and Valeria Reyes had a strong match but just came up a little short. They were awarded the game ball. Yasaria Palomares and Melanie Barrera played to together for the first time, played well, and were in every game.”
SINGLES-Esther (RLS) def. Athena Landeros 0-6, 0-6; Grace (RLS) def. Elizabeth Arreola 1-6, 0-6; Emilee (RLS) def. Isabel Mendoza 0-6, 1-6; Shreya (RLS) def. Bianca Sanchez 0-6, 0-6.
DOUBLES-Gian/Imogene (RLS) def. Adilienne Ramirez/Valeria Reye 2-6, 5-7; Linda/Jazzy (RLS) def. Jacqueline Ramirez/Jesenia Arreola 0-6, 0-6; Emily/Lily (RLS) def. Yasari Palomares/Melanie Barrera 2-6, 2-6.
