Chandler Bruttig

LAGUNA CREEK — Union Mine’s Chandler Bruttig, seeded No. 2, fell short in last week’s finals of the Sierra Valley Conference championships at Laguna Creek Racquet Club.

Bruttig, a junior, lost 2-6, 1-6 to Liberty Ranch’s Taylor Gayla after defeating Vista del Lago’s Angelica Frank 10-6 in the quarters and Chloe Anderson (Cosumnes Oaks) 6-3, 6-2 in the semifinals.

“Although the score appears lopsided, Chandler played better than she ever has … counter attacking and hanging in against her big forehand,” D’back coach Chris Schnaidt said. “She lost four deuce games that could have swung the match more in her favor.”

Despite the setback, Bruttig qualified to tomorrow’s individual section tournament at Johnson Ranch where she hopes to improve on last year’s performance (quarterfinal loss).

Spencer McClain, seeded No.4, defeated Nick Warblin of Galt 10-1 in the first round. The second round was a highlight as McClain handed Danny Klinenberg (Cosumnes Oaks) his first league loss of the year, 10-7. In the semis, he was defeated by two-time league champ Sandeep Gurran of Vista 2-6, 2-6. He played a quick 3rd place match against El Dorado’s Nikko Maggi, winning 3-1.

In doubles, Sam Murphy and Michelle Doyle won an opening round match before falling to River City in the quarters. Johnny D’Agostini and Jason Lee also won a first rounder before falling.
