Dana Hills Girls' Tennis Takes Wind Out of Newport Harbor Sailors

The Lady Sailors were no match for the Lady Dolphins who won 15-3 in round two of CIF-SS Division 1 Playoffs.

(Editor's Note: Thanks to reader Sue Ludiwg for sending in this story.)

The Newport Harbor Sailors gave the Dana Hills Dolphins a very warm welcome for the second round of CIF-SS Divison 1 Playoffs by greeting each player with a bouquet of flowers on Nov. 2. 

After spirited team cheers by both teams the girls took to the courts. The prowess of the Dolphins singles, No. 1 Alyssa Smith, No. 2 Jessica Perez and No. 3 Cassidy Spearman was overwhelming for the Sailors.  All three Dana players have powerful games and played flawless, sweeping all 8 of the sets they played.  The cheers for both teams continued until the final point, but the Dolphins walked away satisfied with a 15-3 win.
