San Luis Obispo High came a few doubles points shy of overcoming CIF-Southern Section Division 2 foe San Marcos in a 12-6 home girls tennis loss Friday.
Led by Lili Voisinet’s two 6-0, 6-0 set wins, the Division 3 Tigers took five of nine singles points, but only Christy Hack and Darla Berkefeld were able to take a set in doubles.
Back-to-back defending PAC 7 champion Abigail Will came back from injury to play two sets for a 6-1 win and a narrow 7-6 (7-5) loss.
According to Tigers’ coach Gary Etheredge, the Tigers were ahead in five additional sets late in the match but couldn’t close them out for the win.
Never miss a local story.
Still, according to Etheredge, coming close against such a quality opponent was cause for praise.
“I was really pleased with our effort, I thought we played really well against a quality opponent,” he said.
