Women's Tennis turns in gutsy performance at Santa Rosa

The women's team dropped two of the three doubles matches and trailed 4-1 after two singles, but somehow clawed their way back with 3-set wins by Stefany Valtman (#6 singles), Rebecca Billingsley (#5 singles), and Jennifer Tu (#2 singles) to tie the score at 4-4. Amanda Smead (#3 singles) found herself tied 4-4 in the third (and deciding) set in the match that would determine the outcome. Unfortunately, the stars did not align as Amanda lost a heartbreaker4-6. It was, however, "...a match that this young team can build upon," according to coach Craig Perez.

Women's Tennis wins at San Francisco

In women's tennis, first year head coach Craig Perez got his young team off to a great start yesterday with a well-deserved victory over CCSF. The Falcons won the team match despite losing in #1 and #2 singles and #1 doubles. The depth of the squad proved to be their strength as #2 doubles team of Jennifer Tu/Amanda Smead rallied to win as did #3 doubles team of Olga Grabciuc/Rebecca Billingsley. In singles, Amanda (#4), Rebecca (#5), and Olga (#6) all earned victories, giving the Falcons a 5-4 team win. Of particular note was the #1 doubles match, where Aneta Zagorenko/Emma Berry fell behind 0-6 before rallying to tie the match at 8-8. Unfortunately, their comeback bid was thwarted when they lost the final tie-breaker 7-5. After a two-year dry spell, it's exciting to have women's tennis back on a winning streak!
