Dos Pueblos’ girls’ tennis team was on fire Tuesday and nearly swept Oxnard in a 16-2 blowout. Every player did “leave it on the court,” as senior co-captain Melissa Dahl instructed, and they all ground out some tough, long sets, particularly against Oxnard’s No. 1 singles player, veteran Moira Hedberg, and No. 1 doubles Sonia Parik and GIna Vanderkaan.
Playing No. 1 singles, senior co-captain Erica Cano showed us all that even in shoes borrowed from me she could dispatch opponents. The Amys — Amy Logan and Amy Sagraves — didn’t drop a game in their three sets.
I am proud of this team; it went the distance in every set.
Dos Pueblos improved to 3-0 with the win, while Oxnard is now 0-1. Next up for Dos Pueblos is Thousand Oaks on Thursday.
Way to go Chargers!
