Cate girls’ tennis opened this year’s non-league schedule with a resounding 15-3 at Oxnard High School today, with strength from top-to-bottom.
In singles, returning one-two combo Julia Gan and McKenna Madden notched three wins a piece, dropping only three games total. Cecelia Sanborn took a few sets to get her footing in a new role at #3 singles, but came through with a third-round win against Oxnard’s #2 player, Amber Landeros.
Cate doubles was anchored by returning #1’s Summer Christensen/Kate Dehlendorf and #2’s Victoria Herman/Pharibe Pope, who each picked up two quick wins before being subbed out. Eva Herman/Emma Liberman picked up three wins at #3 doubles, giving away only three games across their three sets. The substitute team of Madeleine Nelson/Maki Kobayashi picked up another set in the third round.
Cate next hits the courts at home on Thursday at home against Villanova Prep at 3pm.
Also, Cate girls’ tennis is proud to announce that we will be offering our services as In-N-Out’s first sponsored athletics program. We’ll be eagerly awaiting future opportunities to showcase the greatness that is In-N-Out.
