It was a smashingly successful Sonoma County League opener for Sonoma Valley High School’s tennis girls, while the girl golfers were upended on the SCL road, and the soccer boys tuned up for their league start at the weekend’s annual, and challenging, Bay Cities Invitational Tournament.

The tennis Lady Dragons began their SCL season with a 7-0 blanking of visiting El Molino on the high school courts last Thursday, led in singles play by junior Cecilia Montano’s 6-3, 6-1  over Issabella Negri at No. 1 singles; junior Hanna Lemaire’s 6-3, 6-1 over Addie Pimpe at No. 2 singles; senior Michelle Stovall’s 6-1, 6-3 over Mary Rose Ohlin at No. 3 singles; and junior Annie Morgan’s 6-0, 6-0 over Erin Eck at No. 4 singles.

Sonoma was led in doubles play by senior Ava Gonzales’ and sophomore Brenda Maldonado’s 6-4, 6-1 win over Maddie Richard and Emma Seigler at No. 1 doubles; seniors Haley Glasner’s and Brooke Slack’s 6-1, 6-2 over Grace Kan and Joy Risley at No. 2 doubles; and junior Stephanie Angulo’s sophomore Alison Gray’s 6-0, 6-2 over Savannah Harrison and Jessica Ramalia at No. 3 doubles.

The Lady Dragons hit the SCL road for matches at Piner in Santa Rosa today and at Petaluma this Thursday, Sept. 12.


Sonoma’s golfing girls dropped a 281-345 SCL decision to Healdsburg last Thursday at the Healdsburg Golf Course, and were paced by senior Jacquie Peterson’s nine-hole round of 56, sophomores Kaylin Riebli’s and Callie Hogan’s 69 each, Isabel Garon’s 72, and sophomore Anna De Smet’s 77.

The Lady Dragon golfers host league foe Piner at 3:30 p.m. today at the Sonoma Golf Club, before teeing off against SCL opponent Elsie Allen in Santa Rosa this Thursday, Sept. 12.


Sonoma’s varsity soccer boys had a rough go against three tough teams over the weekend in the Bay Cities Invitational.

In Friday’s action, the Dragons were shut out 3-0 by Terra Linda and fell 3-1 to Granite Bay, then on Saturday they were blanked 3-0 by Rancho Cotate.

The Dragons will host both Piner and defending champion Analy in their SCL openers at 4 p.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 11, and Friday, Sept. 13, at the high school field.

Sonoma’s varsity soccer girls open their SCL season at Piner in Santa Rosa and Analy in Sebastopol today and Thursday, Sept. 12, respectively.
