The high school girls’ tennis season got underway in Nassau County on Monday as some schools took to the courts for the start of the fall season. It was good to be a road team yesterday as a number of squads picked up victories away from home.

In Conference I action, Port Washington traveled to Oceanside and upended the Sailors 4-3. The Vikings were led by Blake Dolin and Maddie Rosenbaum, who knocked off Vicky Ozadosky and Chloe Lewis 6-1, 6-1 at fourth doubles to seal the win. Also in Conference I, Roslyn went to Cold Spring Harbor and routed the Seahawks 6-1.

Great Neck South put together an impressive performance on Monday, taking out Friends Academy 6-1 in Conference II-A play. They won all of the doubles matches on the afternoon, and were led by juniors Haarika Reddy and Emily Bae who battled back from a set down to beat Devika Kedia and Marina Hilbert 1-6, 6-2, 6-4 at first doubles.

Also in Conference II-A, Oyster Bay went to Garden City and beat the Trojans 5-2. Senior Jo-Jo Pinnock and junior Adriania BiFulco led the way with a 6-2, 7-5 victory over Leslie Wann and Dale Poole at first doubles, while Jessica Layne beat Olivia Guarnieri 6-0, 4-6, 6-3 in third singles.

Great Neck South will travel to Garden City on Wednesday for another Conference II-A showdown.

Massapequa cruised past Carey/Sewanhaka 5-2 in Conference II-B action. The most exciting match came in third singles, when Nicole Schiraldi of Massapequa edged out Morgan Trifon in a tiebreaker 6-3, 2-6, 11-9.
