NU tennis closes season at SFL tourney

The Nevada Union girls tennis team finished the season with the Sierra Foothill League singles and doubles tournament hosted last week at Rocklin High School.

On Monday, Emma Hales represented NU against her Rocklin counterpart but was not able to deal with her steady opponent.

Katie King won her first-round match against Jana Reinecke but then met her end against the No. 2 seed, Naveena Atolla, from Rocklin.

There was also a B draw tournament in which each school was allowed two players. Nevada Union had Avery Wick and Ashleigh Balistreri representing, and both were bounced by tough first-round opponents.

The doubles tournament was Thursday, and Nevada Union’s team of Katie King and Emma Hales were the top seed. Unfortunately, they met an early exit against a Granite Bay team in the second round, losing in three sets.

The second NU team of Balistreri and Mone’t Russell lost in the first round against Rocklin.

The Lady Miners did well in the doubles B side with Sierra Dallugge and Camilla Sante making it all the way to the semifinal round where they fell to the top-seeded Rocklin team.

NU’s other team, Stacie Bernasconi and Macy Wood, made it to the second round, but an injury would set the Lady Miners back, and they were unable to finish.
