Girls tennis Lakers repeat as Class C sectional champs

Skaneateles completes 13-0 season, blanks Sauquoit Valley

Krause worked a bit longer in singles, but still beat Megan Goss 6-1, 7-6. Ellison handled Emma Renzi 6-0, 6-3, while Gage won again, topping Elena Alteri 6-3, 6-4. Belinski and Davis didn’t drop a game in doubles, blanking Delaney Gonas and Michelle Snow 6-0, 6-0, while Herbst and Magee put together a 6-3, 6-0 decision over Jasmeet Aujla and Jody White.

With no time to rest, the Lakers went right into Wednesday’s semifinal against no. 5 seed Manlius-Pebble Hill, and met with the same satisfactory result, this time playing seven matches as it took out the Trojans 7-0.

Gage had a bit more work in singles, but still beat Caroline Blanck 6-4, 6-3. Ellison also played Blanck and won 6-2, 6-1, with Krause moving past Olivia Shepard 6-3, 6-1.

Herbst and Magee, leading the doubles sweep, got a 6-2, 6-2 win over Julia Mettler-Grove and Sophie Novak. Belinski and Davis beat Spencer Alexander and Ada Buniak 6-2, 6-1, with Maura McNeil and Maddy Pinkney handling Annie Weiss and Lucy Zwigard 6-0, 6-1. Makenzi Keller and Julia Torrisi topped Amina Kilpatrick and Kaylee Steiner 6-1, 6-0.

One more match followed against Sauquoit – and that proved successful, too, leaving Skaneateles to go after individual singles and doubles titles next week in the sectional Division III tournament, also in Utica.
