With each passing week, it seems one’s chances of getting struck by lightning on a clear sunny day are greater than the Arcadia girls’ tennis team losing a game this season.
The Apaches’ most recent 17-1 victory over Burbank on Tuesday improves their record to 17-0 and 8-0 in the Pacific League. Some of the most notable performances from the match came from doubles action as the teams Francesca Yao/Angel Pan and Jean Chen/Michelle Dong both won all three of their sets.
Tuesday’s win was an improvement for the Apaches as they only defeated Burbank 14-4 in their first meeting on Sept. 25. Interestingly enough, this marked Arcadia’s smallest margin of victory this season.
Arcadia’s biggest feat up to date was taking the Beckman Tournament out in Irvine. In that outing, the Apaches defeated Mater Dei 7-1, Irvine 8-0, Laguna Beach 8-0, Foothill 8-0, Beckman 6-2 and Yorba Linda 8-0 to take the crown.
Only six games are left in the regular season and it seems very likely Arcadia remain undefeated all the way through. However, the Apaches still have a couple of tough nonleague matches against San Marino and No. 4 Palos Verdes.
