The D’backs doubled up El Dorado 6-3, splitting singles but taking four of five doubles matches. El Dorado won No. 1 girls singles, No. 2 boys and No. 1 girls doubles.
Sitting at 5-2 in the Sierra Valley Conference, Union Mine tackled River City Wednesday in West Sacramento — the resumption of a rain-halted match and one that was cancelled all together. The Raiders won both.
“A doubleheader on the warmest day so far was not the best way to go but we are caught up on the schedule,” D’back coach Chris Schnaidt said. “The scores (1-8, 2-7) look ugly but we were hanging around. We lost two match tiebreaks in both matches. Had we won those, the scores would have reflected how close the matches really were.”
The Trojans shut out the Bruins for the second time, winning each match in straight sets. Oak Ridge has a big rematch tomorrow against Jesuit at the Rio Del Oro Racquet Club. Earlier this spring, the Marauders defeated Troy at Broadstone.
