GIRLS TENNIS HIGHLIGHTS
Kathryn Ashford won at No. 1 singles and Buchanan gained a measure of revenge with a 7-2 rout of Clovis West, which beat the Bears 5-4 for the Division I championship last year. Buchanan (15-0, 4-0) won five singles matches to clinch the Tri-River Athletic Conference showdown with Clovis West (3-1) that was postponed last Thursday because of poor air quality.
Stephanie Jones pulled out a 1-6, 6-2 (11-9) victory over Theresa Sweeney at No. 1 singles to help Mt. Whitney down Golden West 8-1 in the West Yosemite League.
