F-M tops Auburn, wins Class A tennis title

J-D stopped by Oneida in Class B unbeaten clash

J-D, looking to repeat its 2012 sectional team title, could not quite get it done against an Oneida side that was strong in both singles and doubles play as it completed a perfect 20-0 season and ended J-D's 16-match win streak this fall.

Elise Catania gave the Red Rams a point in first singles, easily handling Jillian Broddock 6-0, 6-1. The Indians won the other singles matches, though, as Samantha Williams fell to Jenna Russ 6-4, 6-0, with Diane Choi putting up a good battle in a 7-5, 6-2 loss to Lexi Skibitski.

In the best of the four doubles matches, J-D's sister duo of Kyrin and Maya Pollock started fast against Oneida's team of Jenna Didio and Samantha Lusher, and though they got pushed to a third set, the Pollocks still prevailed 6-1, 5-7, 6-4.

However, the Indians won the other three doubles matches in short order. Natalie Alweis and Karley Platenik lost to Connie Froass and Rachel Markle 6-2, 6-2, while Isabella Melton and Adrianna Sotolongo fell to Brianna Lauretti and Claire Mancarella 6-2, 6-1. Olivia Melton and Samantha Mignacca met a similar fate, taking a 6-1, 6-2 defeat to Julianna Cavanaugh and Deanna DiFabio.
