League championship week spilled into this week with the EBAL playing its singles championship today at ClubSport in San Ramon. That meant the familiar sight of Monte Vista’s Mia Giovanetti and Foothill’s Kerri Kummer playing each other had to wait until today. Those who were there can tell you that it was worth the wait.
Kummer won in three sets, 2-6, 6-4, 6-0 to take her third straight EBAL singles title. Here are a few observations from ClubSport.
1. Both of these girls should be in the NCS singles draw. They won’t be, because Giovanetti should qualify in doubles later today, but they both deserve a shot at the crown because the brand of tennis they put forth today was top-notch.
2. Kudos to Giovanetti for playing so well while dealing with a cold. You could hear the sniffles all match.
3. At one point, Foothill coach Noel Madden asked Kummer if she wanted a cape so she could be Super Kerri. I guess we found out that she is, in fact, super.
So, a league title recap:
ACCAL: Jennifer Lau, Alameda
BSAL: Elena Pan, Albany
BVAL: Noelle Eades, Carondelet
DFAL: Lauren Curry, Northgate
EBAL: Kerri Kummer, Foothill
We’ll see these girls next at James Logan High School on Nov. 14-15. Of more immediate importance is the NCS Team Tournament, which starts tomorrow at various sites throughout the East Bay. Still available is a blog mention for whoever finds me tomorrow and mentions that they read the blog.
