Claire Dean over Jenny Hous­ton and So­phie Solomon at No. 1 dou­bles. But the Buc­ca­neers won all the rest of the matches. Ca­t­rina Coyner shutout Mur­doch at No. 1 sin­gles. Abby Car­pen­ter topped Dean, 8-1, at No. 2. Emily Fron­czek beat Abby Heinz, 8-3, at No. 3, and Celina Kauf­man de­feated Mor­gan El­burn, 8-2, at No. 4.

Marisa Teti and Jess Giron bested Abby Blan­chard and Clau­dia Leshinske, 8-2, at No. 2 dou­bles, and Syd Bar­low and Ella Kauf­man beat Car­rie Wal­czak and Brooke Gor­don, 8-3, at No. 3.

“I give Queen Anne’s a lot of credit,” Bucs head coach Rick Tyng said. “They gave us some of our tough­est com­pe­ti­tion we’ve had all year. The No. 1 dou­bles didn’t go in our fa­vor, but I thought they had some spec­tac­u­lar points. It was good to get chal­lenged.

“The whole team’s im­proved,” added Tyng. “I think Abby prob­a­bly played her best match of the year at No. 2. Celina and Emily have been undefeated all year play­ing 3 and 4 sin­gles.”

The Lions (6-2, 5-2) have also im­proved.

“Last year we were 4-14 so we took our bumps and bruises, but this year we’re just hav­ing fun,” Lions head coach Dee Fisher said. “They’re a pleas­ant sur­prise. Rick’s a good coach. He’s got the girls fun­da­men­tally sound and they work well to­gether.”
