Melissa Cardinals team tennis breezed to bi-district and area round playoff wins over Dallas Roosevelt and Carrollton Ranchview, respectively, last week and will meet district foe Anna in the regional quarterfinals on Tuesday.
Second-seeded Anna routed North Dallas, 19-0, in bi-district action in Dallas and drew an area-round bye. With its 19-0 sweep of North Dallas on Oct. 15, Anna broke the school record for team tennis wins in a season with nine. Freshman Morgan Sharp won her singles matches, 6-0, 6-0, and, with partner Andrea Alvarez, won doubles, 6-0, 6-1, while serving up eight aces. The Coyotes posted four “golden sets” in the match.
Also in Dallas, Melissa blanked Roosevelt, 12-0, on Oct. 15 and Ranchview, 10-1, on Thursday.
Anna and Melissa then squared off Tuesday at McKinney North High School, but that match was played after press time for this issue.
