Sophomore Kelsey Hemm and freshman Isabelle Thompson teamed up to produce a three-set victory that helped carry the Sacred Heart Prep girls' tennis team to a 4-3 nonleague victory over visiting Burlingame on Monday.
The singles were split in quick fashion with the Gators (4-1) winning at No. 3 behind freshman Elysa Kohrs (6-0, 6-0) and senior Kristen Rodgers (6-0, 6-1). SHP also won at No. 2 doubles behind the tandem of senior Katherine Bausback and and sophomore Alexa Bokman (6-0, 6-1).
That left things up to Hemm and Thompson, who battled for a 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 victory at No. 1 doubles to clinch the well-earned triumph. Sacred Heart Prep will be back in action Friday at Menlo-Atherton in a 3:30 p.m. nonleague test.
