FOLSOM — Last week’s Delta River League tennis championships at Broadstone

Racquet Club mirrored the Oak Ridge and Ponderosa High move to Division I — deeper, tougher and better competition. Where in past season’s the year-ending tournament was kind to Trojan and Bruin netters in the Sierra Valley Conference finals, this year it wasn’t as the DRL, featuring division winner St. Francis, was unrelenting.

Oak Ridge did have finalists in Super Singles,  No. 3, 5 and 6 singles and No. 1, 2 and 3 doubles, but no winners. Troy’s top singles player, Tori Trylovich, by coming in second in the Super Singles bracket, qualified for individual sections that begin this Thursday at the Laguna Creek Racquet Club. But first, Trylovich plays in Oak Ridge’s first-round Sac-Joaquin Section D-1 playoff opener tomorrow at Broadstone against Merced.

At the DRL tournament, Trylovich had a first round bye; toppled Bruin Kaitlyn Roberts 6-0, 6-1 in the quarterfinals; defeated Troubadour Monica Yassear in the semifinals; before Pleasant Grove’s Guennard, bested Trylovich 6-7, 2-6 for the division title.

Trojan Victoria Waugh (No. 3 singles) won her first match but lost the finals to St. Francis. Same for Julia Dunnigan (5) and Kaitlin Corell (6) who reached the title match only to fall victim to a Troubadour.

Oak Ridge came close in Super Doubles when Katrina Lund and Julia Lund reached the semis but were defeated there and then in a playoff for the final slot to qualify for sections. The Lunds lost a three-setter to a Pleasant Grove duo to end their tournament. Trojan doubles teams Lauren Roppolo-Alexis Hill (1), Tia Nguyen-Gabby Zeagler (2) and Morgan Dial-Rachael Librach (3) also made the finals but lost.
