The South Tahoe High girls tennis team went undefeated in the first two rounds of their three-round Nevada 4A match against North Valleys Thursday, easily beating the visiting Panthers 17.5-5 at South Tahoe High School.

We had a really good match today,” Viking coach Sabrina Zalles said. “It was nice to get all of our team members a chance to play.”

Freshman Ashley Bratton was solid for the Vikings, defeating her opponents 6-3 and 6-3, while Lacy Leonard also stepped up on the singles side and won a match 6-4.

On the doubles side, Lauren Schue and Karen Dalmacia won their match 6-1.

“The girls have been practicing very hard,” Zalles said. “They have really been playing up to their ability.”

The Vikings 5-3 play host to Carson next Thursday in their last home match of the season.

The South Tahoe High boys tennis team continued their run at zone with a dominant victory at North Valleys.

Winning 22-0, the match offered a chance for many of the younger Viking players to get into the action.

“They all got a chance to play and get a win in a match,” Viking coach Pat Fagen said. “The kids are really working hard and they’re focused on going to zone.”

The boys will look for more positive results Thursday when they travel to Carson.
