With two more dominant performances last week to close out the regular season, the Niwot High School girls tennis team has all the momentum it needs rolling into the 4A Region 5 championship.

The latest victims of the Cougars’ current winning streak were Valor Christian at home last Monday and at Greeley Central last Tuesday.

Against Valor Christian, all three singles competitors won in straight sets, led by dominant sophomore Julia Pentz who won her one singles match 6-2, 6-0.

For the doubles teams, the one doubles team of senior Emma Lerner and junior Amanda Duquette and the two doubles team of sophomores Erin O’Neill and Jewel Ng both won in straight sets. Neither doubles team has lost now in six straight matches.

It was a complete win for Niwot against their last league opponent in Greeley Central, as they took the match 7-0.

The singles competitors only dropped five total games in the match, while winning 36. Sophomore Taylor Thulson won her two singles match 6-0, 6-1, while freshman Rachel Drake won her sixth straight three singles match 6-2, 6-0.

Every doubles team won its match in straight sets except for the four doubles pairing of freshmen Yui Ishikawa and Sreeya Kairamkonda, who dropped their first set 2-6 but rallied back to win the next two, 6-4, 6-2.

The Cougars now prepares to start the 4A Region 5 championships and hopes to carry all the momentum they have built with them. The regional championships start Wednesday, May 4 and go through Thursday, May 5.
