Local Roundup: Hillsdale and Aragon tennis pick up wins
October 09, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Hillsdale used its tried-and-true method to beat Menlo-Atherton for the second time this season: sweep the singles matches.

All four of the Knights’ singles players stayed unbeaten in Peninsula Athletic League play to beat the Bears 4-3 to improve to 8-0 in Bay Division play.

Cindy Liu, Hillsdale’s No. 1 singles player, rebounded from a scare last week to win easily, 6-1, 6-1. Natalie Spievack (No. 2 singles) won 6-2, 6-0, while No. 3 player Mariko Iinuma blitzed her opponent, 6-0, 6-0. Irene Palisco completed the sweep for the Knights, needing three set to beat Laila Volpe 6-1, 3-6, 7-5.

Menlo-Atherton (4-4) swept the doubles matches, all in straight sets. The No.1 duo of Sally Carlson and Amanda Scandalios had the easiest time of the three, winning 6-3, 6-4.

Aragon solidified its chances of making the PAL playoffs by beating Burlingame 4-3.

Burlingame coach Bill Smith accomplished the goal he puts forth every match in winning the doubles. Unfortunately for the Panthers, they could not pick up a win at any of the singles matches as the Dons swept those for the team win.

Aislinn Oka had the most convincing win of the day for Aragon (5-3 PAL Bay), winning her No. 3 singles match 6-1, 6-1. Kaede Ishikawa (No. 1 singles) and Melissa Ma (No. 4 singles) won their matches by nearly identical scores, 6-0, 6-2 for Ishikawa, 6-0, 6-3 for Ma.

Vickie Sun had the most difficult match of the day, but the Dons’ No.3 singles players prevailed in three sets over Sarah Sinatra, 6-1, 5-7, 6-2.

In doubles play, Burlingame’s Madeline Somers and Sammy Kotmel breezed to a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 3 doubles.

In West Bay Athletic League action, Menlo School cruised to yet another victory, sweeping Notre Dame-San Jose 7-0. The Knights played only four matches because Notre Dame defaulted at No. 3 and 4 singles, as well as No. 3 doubles — not that it would have mattered.

the Knights did not drop a set in running their WBAL record to 3-0.

Menlo’s closest pursuer, Harker School, downed Crystal Springs Uplands School, 6-1.

The Gryphons only win came at No. 4 singles because the Eagles defaulted that spot.

Sacred Heart Prep also came up short, falling to Castilleja 5-2. The Gators’ two wins came at No. 1 and No. 3 doubles. SHP’s top doubles team of Lucie Ackley and Ruth Sarwal dominated their opponent, 6-1, 6-1. The No. 3 tandem of Taylor McKelvy and Lauren Trihy had to work a bit harder, needing three set to pull out a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory.

Girls’ Golf

Sacred Heart Prep improved to 5-1-1 in WBAL matches following a 227-234 win over Notre Dame-San Jose at San Jose Municipal Golf Course Tuesday afternoon.

Notre Dame’s Nicole Bartone took home medalist honors, firing a 4-over 40, but four of the Gators’ golfers all shot rounds in the 40s to take the team victory.

SHP was led by Jessica Koenig and Sinead Haley, who both finished with 42s. Isabelle Chun shot a 45, while Emma Newton finished with a 47.

Kiana Cacchione finished with a 51 for the Gators, while Camille Ulam shot a 60.

It’s the second day in a row SHP and ND-SJ faced off. The two teams tied 232-232 at Palo Alto Golf Club Monday afternoon.
