On Halloween afternoon, the Los Banos Tiger girl’s tennis team was “treated” to an 8-1 victory in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin section tennis playoffs over Mira Loma from Sacramento.

The Lady Tigers swept through Mira Loma with only one blemish on a perfect set of matches. Los Banos number 1 tennis player, Kloe Cotta, and number 3 player Sahar Ayubzai easily defeated their opponents, with only Melina Mejia dropping a close set to her opponent. The Tigers claimed all the other singles and doubles matches to advance into round two of the Sac-Joaquin section tourney.

In the second round of the playoffs, the Tigers dropped a 6-3 match to Placer; however, Los Banos’ number one singles player, Kloe cotta, advanced in the section playoffs. The Tiger doubles team of Hailee Moore and Melina Mejia also advanced and will represent Los Banos in doubles.
