Lady Lion Tennis Team Falls

to Benicia in

Section Championship Match

The CKM women's tennis team ended its dramatic run for the CIF Sac-Joaquin Division II Section Championships on Wednesday, November 12 at Benicia High School.  After knocking off strong squads from Vista Del Lago and Bella Vista in the prior two rounds, CKM fell just a point short of picking up the school's first sectional tennis title.  With wins from freshman Taylor Ishida at #6 singles, senior Amy Dao at #3 singles, and Robyn Noguchi & Shirley Kwong at #3 doubles, CKM was tied with BHS 3-3.  But the Lions dropped both the #1 singles (Olivia Lok) and the #2 singles (Taylor Chan) in dramatically close three-set matches as the #2 doubles team of Catherine Kong/Rachel Wagner snared a three-set win to close the match with a 5-4 score in favor of BHS.  The CKM run to the finals marked the furthest that CKM has gone in the postseason in many years, and it highlighted the senior year for five of the team's stars.
