GILROY—The Christopher girls tennis pulled out a 4-3 win over Everett Alvarez Tuesday at home but the Eagles didn’t make it easy. Three of the day’s matches needed a tiebreaker to decide a winner and ended with the Cougars on top each time.
GILROY—Change is in the water at Gilroy and Christopher High schools. At Gilroy, there’s a new skipper leading the Mustangs, and at Christopher, the Cougars are bracing for a tough test against new opponents in the upper Gabilan Division of the Monterey Bay League.
The Gilroy boys water polo team lives to see another day.
GILROY — Christopher looked like it was going to escape Scotts Valley with a victory, but maybe that was the problem.
Christopher and North Salinas each had three wins a piece under their belts, but one had to walk away a winner. All eyes turned to No. 3 singles player Tiffany Roberts to take home a 'W' for the Cougars — and she didn't disappoint. Roberts won the first set 6-3, but dropped the second 4-6. The Cougars' No. 3 didn't let up, taking the tiebreaker match 10-3 to help her team close out the regular season on a high note and edge North Salinas 4-3 Tuesday on the road. "It was an exciting finish to a good year for the girls tennis team," CHS coach Patrick McBrearty said. No. 1 singles player Emily Barham was stellar once again, shutting down her opponent 6-0, 6-0 to remain undefeated on the year. Adena Chen, Christopher's No. 2, also won her match 6-4, 6-2 in singles' play.
Christopher’s Bella Marquez did her job in the cage and then got to test her skills on offense — and she came out firing.
