Heritage tennis: Girls' singles a force...
By Robert Przybylo
Time to look at the host school for the Heritage Hall Tournament of Champions. The boys are a year older while the girls are still a cut above the rest.
Heritage has two big-time stars in senior Julie Labarthe and sophomore Sarah Bowen, that can’t be denied.
The two were dominant in winning the singles’ titles, not losing a set in all three matches.
A notch below is junior Carissa Villaflor. Villaflor and Bowen can alternate between No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles flawlessly, giving the team a lot of flexibility.
Bowen is a character. From her pink hair to her rocker-like attitude, she is a breath of fresh air.
It’s a shame Bishop McGuinness wasn’t at the tournament because seeing Mia Lancaster and/or Whitney Ritchie against the Charger girls would have been worth the price of admission.
And unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the Irish and Chargers are going to meet up at all this season.
Labarthe said though that’s disappointing, that’s not something they have any control of. “We can only play the girls that are in the tournament.”
The boys are so close to making that break through. Players like Brandon Cohlmia and Jonathan Borsky are starting to get there.
The 4A boys race should be Cascia Hall’s to lose, with Heritage and Metro Christian battling it out for second.
And special thanks to all the volunteers at Heritage for all the food and drinks this weekend. This tournament isn’t just a great gauge of where the teams are, but it’s the best example of trying to get the best teams together for one weekend. It certainly delivered yet again.
