Rain pushes CIF tennis championships to Monday

FOR OCVARSITY.COM

SEAL BEACH - Unrivaled in technique and execution, Mother Nature -- and her maddening unpredictability -- remains the lone undefeated force through three-plus months of high school tennis.

After a steady drizzle halted the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS Individual Championships on Wednesday afternoon, an all-out downpour Thursday morning postponed the remaining rounds to Monday at Seal Beach Tennis Center.

Dana Hills’ Alyssa Smith and Tesoro’s Mayci Jones -- the tournament’s top two singles seeds, respectively -- will each resume their partially completed quarterfinals matches Monday at 10 a.m.

Smith forced a decisive third set against Campbell Hall’s Yuki Chiang after dropping a tiebreaker in the opening set of their singles quarterfinal.

On the bottom half of the singles bracket, Jones -- who fell in the quarterfinals a season ago -- holds a one-set advantage over Millikan’s Cindy Nguyen.

Consecutive victories by both players would set up a rematch of last month’s South Coast League singles championship; a highly-competitive match Smith won, 6-3, 6-4.

Dana Hills’ top doubles team of Jessica Perez and Cassidy Spearman will square off against Annika Ringblom and Ena Shibahara from Peninsula of Palos Verdes in the doubles semifinals when play resumes Monday.

Perez and Spearman -- semifinalists for the second time in three years -- are looking to become the first CIF doubles champion from Orange County since 2007.
