In their Sonoma County League regular-season finale last Thursday, Sonoma Valley High School’s golfing girls played on the road and dropped a 272-318 decision to rival Petaluma at the Rooster Run Golf Course.
Pacing the Lady Dragons were senior Jacquie Peterson’s nine-hole round of 54, sophomores Callie Hogan’s and Kaylin Riebli’s 63 each, sophomore Lucy Houghton’s 66, and sophomore Anna De Smet’s 72.
Sonoma’s young girl golfers, directed by longtime coach Tom Hickerson, competed in the SCL championship tournament yesterday, with results not available at presstime.
The tennis Lady Dragons traveled to Sebastopol last Thursday for an SCL second-place showdown with Analy – Petaluma has already laid claim to the league title – and, as was the case in the first match between the longtime rivals, they were dealt a heartbreaking 4-3 loss.
Winning their matches for Sonoma were senior Michelle Stovall’s 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 over Hillary Brennan at No. 3 singles; junior Annie Morgan’s and sophomore Brenda Maldonado’s 7-5, 6-3 over Paulina Cradeu and Alya Bohr at No. 1 doubles; and junior Stephanie Angulo’s and sophomore Alison Gray’s 6-3, 6-2 over Carley Fiser-Tachouet and Shania Harsono at No. 3 doubles.
Sustaining the Lady Dragon losses were junior Cecilia Montano’s 1-6, 1-6 to Jade Wight at No. 1 singles; junior Hanna Lemaire’s 1-6, 2-6 to Caroline Schlutius at No. 2 singles; senior Ava Gonzales’ 6-3, 5-7, 5-7 to Kate Stewart at No. 4 singles; and seniors Haley Glasner’s and Brooke Slack’s 7-6 (5), 6-4, 7-6 (5) to Hannah Caruso and Darcy Spenser at No. 2 doubles.
Sonoma’s girl netters will host SCL foe Elsie Allen in their home finale at 3:30 p.m. today on the high school courts and, before the match, they will honor their seniors, including Glasner, Gonzales, Slack, Stovall, Jacqueline Mondragon and Samantha Richards.
The Lady Dragons end their SCL dual-match season this Thursday afternoon, Oct. 17, at Healdsburg.
