Freshmen Sara Choy of Sacred Heart Prep and Lanie Van Linge of Menlo-Atherton both advanced to the singles semifinals of the Central Coast Section Individual Tournament on Monday at Bay Club Courtside in Los Gatos. Only one, however, will reach the finals on Tuesday.

Choy, who is undefeated this season, breezed through her two opponents with 6-1, 6-0 and 6-3, 6-0 victories while Van Linge was nearly as perfect with 6-0, 6-3 and 6-3, 6-0 triumphs. Those wins, however, put the two first-year players on the same court in the semifinals, which begin at noon. The winner between Choy and Van Linge will return to the courts later in the day to face either Mariko Iinuma of Hillsdale or Arianna Chen of Leland for the singles title. Chen advanced with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over defending champion Elizabeth Yao of Menlo School.

In the doubles competition, only the team of Menlo-Atherton's Sami Andrew and Julia Marks made it past the opening round. The Bears' duo, however, fell in the quarterfinals and were eliminated.
