Flagstaff girls tennis blanks Coconino to end season

  • Updated
  • 0

The Flagstaff Eagles girls tennis team ended the season with a victory after suffering a two-match slide, cruising past the Coconino Panthers Monday at the Hal Jensen Recreation Center courts, 9-0, in the crosstown rivalry match.

Jadyn Romero, Abby Ball, Allie Thomas and Catherine Gripp all blanked their opponents for Division II Flagstaff, which finished the spring with a 5-6 overall record and a 4-4 mark in the Section Two standings. It was Flagstaff's first and only 9-0 victory of the season, posting it against a D-II Coconino team that has one more chance remaining to avoid finishing winless.

Eagles junior Brooke Freshour recorded a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 1 singles against Panthers junior Ellie Johnston, and junior Millicent Holliday figured out Lisa Smith fairly quickly on the way to a 6-3, 6-0 victory at court two.

Coconino vs Flagstaff Tennis

Coconino’s Diana Smith serves against Flagstaff Monday afternoon during a match at the Hal Jensen Recreation Center tennis courts.

Freshour and sophomore Romero paired up for 27th-ranked Flagstaff at No. 1 doubles and finished ahead of Johnston and Araceli Arias, 8-4. Holliday and Ball paired up at No. 2 doubles for an 8-1 win over Diana Smith and Maricela Alonzo, and Thomas and Gripp were the victors at No. 3 doubles, 8-2, over Naomi Harris and Shaina Garcia.

Looking to avoid finishing 0-10 for 2021, Coconino, ranked No. 59 as of Monday, will play host again when it takes on 43rd-ranked Mingus Union for a Tuesday match at 3 p.m.

Roger Federer has confirmed that he will play in both the Geneva Open and the French Open in May. The 39-year-old is making his comeback after undergoing two knee surgeries in 2020. Federer made his return at last month’s Qatar Open but has not played since. The last time he played the French Open was in 2019 when he reached the semi-finals. The 20-time Grand Slam champion has only won the French Open once in 2009. The Geneva Open will begin on May 16, while the French Open will begin on May 30. Until then, I will use the time to train. Can't wait to play in Switzerland again, Roger Federer.
