The West Ranch girls tennis team beat Golden Valley 15-3 in Tuesday’s Foothill league match at Golden Valley High.

The Wildcats continued their strong doubles play, taking all nine sets. Jenny Cranerg stepped in for MacKenzie Lyle, who is out due to illness, and teamed up with Amanda Wilkinson to sweep their matches. The doubles teams of Sydney Schwartz and Hana El-Arabi, and Ahra Cho and Noor Makan also won their three sets.

Julia Lynch, Noor Makan and Hannah Yuster all won two sets on the singles side.

For Golden Valley (4-9, 2-7), singles player Rebecca Ho won her three sets 6-0, 6-1, 6-2.

“She found ways to win without her strong serving game,” said Golden Valley head coach Josh Stimac.

Next up for the Wildcats (9-4, 6-3) is a matchup against Valencia (16-4,8-1) at West Ranch.

“It’s at home,” said West Ranch head coach Eric Spiecker. “Hopefully some of the results on the doubles side can get picked up on the singles side.”

If West Ranch beats Valencia, the Wildcats can prevent the Vikings from getting at least a share of the Foothill League title.

Saugus 15, Canyon 3

Saugus defeated Canyon 15-3 in Tuesday’s league match at Saugus High. The Centurions’ singles players, Jessica Moore (6-2, 6-0, 0-6), Caren Rosen (6-2, 6-0, 0-6), and Carlie Ozaki (6-3, 6-3, 1-6) all won two sets apiece. Saugus’ doubles teams played with JV players because of illnesses to Delaney Kuric and Abbi Bahr.

“Due to illness, we had a couple of JV players that stepped up and came through today,” said Saugus head coach Allan Hardbarger.

Those JV players were Jessica Rangler and Hannah Miller. Rangler teamed up with Erin Yamanka and won three sets 7-6, 6-3, 6-2. Miller teamed up with Kinzie Hovey and won three sets 6-3, 6-4, 6-2.

For the Cowboys, No.1 singles player Katrina DeGuzman swept her three sets 6-0, 6-0, 6-1 to give Canyon its three sets in the match. Saugus (10-8, 3-6) will now move on to play a home match against Golden Valley on Thursday. According to coach Hardbarger, if the Centurions win, they can apply for an at-large playoff berth with 11 wins. Canyon will play at Hart.
