The San Marino High School girls’ varsity tennis team used an 8-1 advantage in doubles to overwhelm visiting Campbell Hall of Studio City by a final score 12-6 in a non-league matchup between the two tennis powers on Monday afternoon.
Valerie Kuo and Camdyn Wu were their consistent selves, winning all three of their sets to get the ball rolling. Katie Lui and Isabelle Kang did likewise and Many Rivera and Selene Yung went 2-1 to provide a solid lead for the Lady Titans, whose record improved to 2-0 with the victory.
All that was left up to the singles players was to garner the two wins needed for victory and the Lady Titans collected twice that many. Elaine Wu, Giselle Gandakusuma and Mia Lin went a combined 4-5 to cap the win.
