Strong singles play not quite enough for Coast vs. Santa Maria

The three top singles players for the Coast Union tennis team showed their skills again last week against Santa Maria — albeit the Lady Broncos were nipped 10-8 by the Saints on Sept. 5.

Alyssa Drew won two of her three sets (2-6, 6-2, 6-4); Ani Corbett also won two of three (6-1, 2-6, 6-4); and Zoe Markham followed suit, winning two of three (6-1, 6-1, 0-6).

In doubles play, Octavia Dolan and Martha Gomez won a single set against the Saints (7-5); and Isabella Hargear and Kaci Ferguson won one set in a tiebreaker, according to tennis coach Shannon Sutherland.

The next home match for the tennis team is Saturday, Sept. 16 against Fresno Christian.
