Varsity Girls Tennis
Gunn 6, Menlo-Atherton 1
Date of competition: Wednesday, September 30, 2009
The Gunn girls' tennis team pretty much put the PAL Bay Division into perspective by knocking off division leader Menlo-Atherton, 6-1, in a nonleague match on Wednesday. The Bears (8-2) played without No. 1 singles player Marietta Tuionetoa, but her absence didn't really affect the outcome as the Titans (7-6) swept the singles behind victories from Allana Booth, Constance Wu, Mari Haraguchi and Alice Li.
Menlo-Atherton did change its lineup around, but threatened in only three matches that went to three sets. Gunn's Michelle Stevenson and Tiffany Russell dropped their first set at No. 3 doubles, but rallied for a 4-6, 7-6 (10-8), 10-8 victory to help wrap things up. Wu and Haraguchi also dropped the first sets in their respective matches before rallying for victories, as well.
