Lady Eagles tennis still unbeaten in league play

Melissa O’Berto, Arianne Hess and Natalia Fullmer each went 3-0 in singles to lead Boulder City’s girls tennis team to a 15-3 victory over visiting Sunrise Mountain in a league match Sept. 17.

The Lady Eagles, 6-1 overall and 5-0 in the Sunrise League, are trying to go undefeated in league play for a third straight year. Last year, they finished with a school record of 12-0 and reached the second round of the state playoffs.

“We are fired up because we know we have a chance to finish unbeaten in the league for the third time in a row,” O’Berto said. “We are going hard. With five seniors and three sophomores, we are small but mighty. I wouldn’t trade my time with my teammates for the world.”

The doubles teams of Sariah Gneiting and Alexis LeMaster, Iris Meijer and Natalia Fullmer, and Kyra Yamamoto and McKenna Frazier were 3-0 each for Boulder City in the victory against Sunrise Mountain.

Two days later against Desert Pines, the No. 1 doubles team of Gneiting and LeMaster went 2-0 to help the Eagles win 11-7. Hess was 2-1 in singles.

Meanwhile, the boys team sports a 2-5 record and a 2-3 league record.
