Despite having two of its top three singles players competing in doubles to gain a possible advantage, the Palo Alto girls' tennis team nonetheless dropped a 5-2 SCVAL De Anza Division match to host Saratoga on Tuesday. The Vikings (2-4, 7-8) suffered a rare sweep in singles, due in part to having No. 2 Emma Marti and No. 3 Mira Khanna playing at No. 1 and 2 doubles, respectively. Marti, teamed with Emily Efland, still dropped a 6-4, 2-6, 10-5 decision. Khanna did team with Margo Gerould to win at No. 2 doubles while Lauren Mah and Christine Koepnick pulled out a victory at No. 3. Paly, however, needed to sweep the doubles and get one singles victory but the singles lineup was outscored 48-1 in combined games in the Vikings' most-lopsided singles' effort of what has turned into a disappointing season.
