Girls tennis advances to CIF quarterfinals, loses to Mt. Carmel

By Bill Tamburrino

The Bulldog girls tennis team advanced to the quarterfinal round of the Division II CIF playoffs before being eliminated by Mt. Carmel in a 10-8 match.

It was the second trip to the quarterfinals in two years for Ramona’s Lady Bulldogs and their best finish in school history.

To get to the quarterfinals Ramona easily handled Hilltop High School 14-4 on the Bulldog girls’ home courts at Riviera Oaks.

In singles action Jessica Failla served up another menu of bagels as she posted three 6-0 sets.

Coach Matt McCormick had praise for his No. 2 singles player, Megan Douglass: “Megan (6-3, 6-3 and 6-2) played very strong tennis by beating all three of her opponents as she picked up 3 very valuable team points.”

Hannah Kent went 4-6 and 2-6, and Elizabeth Bowersox posted a 3-6 set.

“Lauren Dunker and Rebecca Vaca (6-1, 6-3 and 6-0) were all over their opponents from start to finish as they picked up three sets. Cassidy Owens and Danielle Vizcarra also took care of business against some very strong doubles teams. Caroline Lopresti and Alyssa Virgilio (7-5, 6-7 and 6-2) played tough and came within a tie- breaker of sweeping their opponents.”

Next up for the Lady Bulldogs are the Valley League individual and doubles tournaments and then the CIF individual and doubles tournaments.
