The Del Norte High girls tennis team dropped a home match to McKinleyville 8-1 on Tuesday.

“The girls played strategically good tennis, but they made too many unforced errors on the big points and lost matches because of that,” said Del Norte tennis coach Jane Rumiano.

“They all played better in the doubles matches, and each player played more aggressively, especially at the net, where many points were won by well-placed, well-paced volleys,” Rumiano said.

Del Norte’s No. 1 singles player, Jordan Babich, lost to Corina Gloor, 3-6, 6-7 (4). No. 2 Debbie Yang was beaten by Wendy Witte, 5-7, 4-6.

No. 3 Alexis Wright lost to Stormy Rhain Jake, 0-6, 3-6, while No. 4 Raili Makela was defeated by Abby Morgan, 2-6, 5-7.

Del Norte’s No. 1 singles player, Jordan Babich, couldn’t get past McKinleyville’s Corina Gloor. The Warriors dropped all six of their singles matches.
