The women’s tennis season came down to the final match-up between Armijo and Vacaville on Thursday, October 19. A win on this day for Armijo meant the Monticello Empire League (MEL) Championship title, and a loss would put Armijo in a three way tie for first place with Rodriguez and Vacaville. With the season on the line, the team gave it everything they had.

Many friends and family cheered and supported the players, and teammates decorated the fences with posters to honor the graduating seniors. Although Armijo didn’t get off to a good start and was down 1-3 in matches at the start, the team came fighting back. Two of the singles matches went three sets, with Arianna Mestas coming back to win 1-6, 6-3, 6-2, and Alexis Ascher coming back to win 6-2. 0-6, 6-3. Number 1 doubles team, Kennedy Corley and Ariel Brown, also went three sets at 7-5, 0-6, 6-1, with Armijo defeating Vacaville 6-3 overall.

As MEL Champions, the team advances to the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs, with a seeding of #9 out of 14 teams. Along with team playoffs, individual singles and doubles competitions for the MEL League were held October 23 – 24. Laura Wadsworth defeated Jasmine Lee from Rodriquez in the Singles final, and in doubles action, Georgia Anselmo and Arianna Mestas, along with Charlotte Brennan-Crowley and Cassie Garza from Rodriquez, advance to the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Singles and Doubles competition in Sacramento on Thursday and Friday, November 2-3.
