Doubles teams come through for No. 6 CdM

FOR OCVARSITY.COM

FULLERTON - Carried by a doubles lineup that swept the third round, No. 6 Corona del Mar's girls tennis team added another chapter to its rivalry with Troy by pulling out a 10-8 victory in a nonleague match Wednesday at Troy High.

"They (Troy) have a wonderful coach and great kids," Sea Kings coach Brian Ricker said. "It's easy to see how their coach's personality rubs off on them. They're well-mannered, polite, and play hard ... We've played when they were good, when we were good, and when we both were good.

"We always have competitive matches with them."

Corona del Mar's No. 2 doubles team of Siena Sharf and Sophie Chen swept their sets, 6-4, 6-2, 6-1, as part of the visitor's 7-2 advantage in doubles.

"Our doubles have gotten significantly better from the beginning of the year to now," Ricker said. "We've eliminated unforced errors, played up at the net more and had better volleys. You're going to win a good amount of doubles sets that way."

With the score knotted at six by the start of the third round, No. 9 Troy (9-3) took two of three singles sets to seize a one-set, four-game lead with three doubles sets remaining against the Sea Kings (10-4).

After the Sea Kings' Taylor Fogarty and Kimmia Naaseh took their set, 6-0, and Kenzie Purcifull and Riley Gerdau claimed theirs, 6-1, Sharf and Chen completed the third-round doubles sweep with a 6-4 victory.

"Those tough Pacific Coast League matches get us ready for rounds like this third one," Ricker said. "The third round was our most dominant of the day, by far. The girls played their best at the end because they're used to playing tough matches. That's why we play Uni and Peninsula and Tesoro; to get ready for matches like these."

Troy's Camille DeLeon (6-0, 6-2, 6-0) and Brittanie Eraso (6-0, 6-3, 6-2) each swept their singles sets.
