SUNNYSIDE - Wa-Hi opened the girls tennis season on the road with a doubleheader here Saturday.
The Blue Devils dropped a 4-3 decision to West Valley Saturday morning, but bounced back to blank Sunnyside, 7-0, in the afternoon match.
"I was really proud of the girl's play today," Wa-Hi coach Keven Peck said. "Playing two matches back-to-back can be tough, mentally and physically. The girls showed a great deal of poise and maturity to bounce back from a tough loss to West Valley and take all seven points from Sunnyside."
Tianna Cummings and Claire Konen both posted wins in singles play at West Valley. The Rams took two of three doubles matches, with the Blue Devil duo of Rosa Tobin and Alison Mehn posting a three-set win for the lone Blue Devil win, to win the match 4-3.
"One of the highlights of the day was the freshmen duo at No. 3 doubles of Alison Mehn and Rosa Tobin," Peck added. "After losing the first set to West Valley, 6-3, Alison and Rosa battened down the hatches, took the second set 7-5 (7-5), and dominated the third set, 6-0. It was great to watch them battle and experience success from their hard work."
The Blue Devils did not lose a set in blanking Sunnyside to even their early season record at 1-1.
Presley Peck, Cummings, Konen and Kristine Leier notched victories in singles.
Shelby Osborn and Chantel Dejarlais, Monica Torres and Mary Felt, and Tobin and Mehn all posted straight set wins in the Blue Devil sweep of doubles matches against the Grizzlies.
