In one of the most highly-anticipated local girls tennis matches of the season, Miramonte hosts Campolindo today at 3:30 p.m.
For the past three years, the Matadors and Cougars have ruled the Diablo Foothill Athletic League, combining on a 100-8 record. While Miramonte has had the upper hand over Campolindo in the past, the Cougars got revenge last year and ended up winning the DFAL.
Miramonte returns DFAL singles champ and All-Times selection Shawdee Rouhafza. Campolindo counters with its No. 1 player, Kim Kennedy.
Campolindo also won the tough Mission San Jose Invitational Sept. 9-10 in Fremont. The No. 2-seeded Cougars beat No. 1 Arroyo 5-2 in the championship match. Campolindo also defeated No. 3 Carondelet (another local power) earlier in the tournament.
So what do you girls tennis fans think of tomorrow’s matchup and which team do you think will win the DFAL? Is there another team out there to challenge Campolindo and Miramonte? It’s still early in the season and the Cougars and Matadors play each other twice in league play, but this match could go a long way in determining the league champ.
At the very least, it will set the tone. Campolindo and Miramonte enter the match each 3-0 in the DFAL.
