It was a rough conclusion to the team portion of the No. 4 seeded Islander Girls Tennis season, as they fell in the CIF Open Division Quarter-Finals to No. 5 seeded Bishop’s 14-4. A last minute injury to one of the Islander singles players forced Head Coach Rob Moore into a lineup change, which impacted the doubles lineup.

There were a couple of highlights, including the doubles play of Ana De La Lama/Ellie Johnson, who defeated the No. 1 and No. 2 doubles teams from Bishop’s 6-2 and 6-2. Another strong effort came from Islander No. 1 singles player Elsa Ostermarker who lost to the Bishop’s No. 2 player 7-3 in a tiebreaker.

On the positive side of the ledger, by taking the top four spots and finishing 1-4 in the Western League Doubles Championship, the Coronado doubles teams consisting of Alejandra Gonzalez/Marla Steel, Johnson/De La Lama, Olivia Strong/Lily Vu and Samantha Russell/Kate Perley all qualified for the CIF Individual Playoffs which start next Monday, Nov. 11. Moore said, “Gonzalez/Steel who won the Western League and Johnson/De La Lama who were the runners-up should both be seeded in the Top 8, with Strong/Vu and Russell/Perley in the Top 16. They’re that good and we’re deep in doubles. Elsa Ostermarker qualified for the CIF singles by winning the back draw in the Western League singles.”
