Katie Yang-Mikala Triplett End CIF Tennis Run in Quarterfinals

Katie Yang and Mikala Triplett made Dos Pueblos girls tennis history by advancing further in the CIF-Southern Section Individual Tournament than any doubles team in the program.

The Charger pair reached the quarterfinals at the Seal Beach Tennis Club on Wednesday, bowing out against the Campbell Hall team of Lisa Wagner and Patria Aziz, 6-2, 6-2.

"The duo went for broke," DP coach Liz Frech said. "Although a tougher match than the first one, the duo did better shot making and variety, plus showed no signs of fatigue. They were pure energy."

Yang and Triplett earlier rallied to beat University's top team of Halla Alajelly and Ashlyn Wang in a tense three-set match, 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-1 tiebreaker).

"The momentum kept shifting," Frech said. "In the second set, the DP duo was down 0-3 and climbed back to win 6-3. In the third, DP was up 3-0 and University surged to push the two teams to a 6-6 tie. In the tiebreaker DP set the pace by going up 6-0 before University took a point.

Yang played her last high school match. "We applaud her for four years of fine performances," said Frech.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
