SOQUEL — Two Aptos High girls tennis players stayed undefeated, while the team’s top singles player rolled past her opponent on Thursday afternoon at Soquel High.

Teagan Knight, the team’s No. 1 player, improved to 7-1 on the season as she defeated Soquel’s Lillie Vogt 6-0, 6-0.

Aptos’ No. 2 player, Rachel Riddick, stayed unbeaten by shutting out Caitlin Buse 6-0, 6-0.

The Mariners’ No. 3 player, Kelly McMinn, kept her undefeated streak intact at 7-0 by defeating Sarah Humphreys 6-2, 6-4.

Aptos, the defending Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League team champions, was on its way to its eighth consecutive team victory and an 8-1 overall mark. They haven’t lost since its season opener against Stevenson.

The temperatures were a lot more welcoming than Tuesday, when both teams had to battle through 100-degree heat along the coast.

Knight led the way, needing less than an hour to win her match. In the second set, she had two streaks of seven points won in a row. She put pressure on Vogt for the majority of the match, forcing her to chase multiple cross-court shots.

Her first seven-point streak came to an end when Vogt hit a return shot that smacked the top of the net and crashed down onto Knight’s side of the court. Knight responded with two winners and took a 3-0 lead.

Knight’s second seven-point streak came in the final seven points of the game. She hit a lob over Vogt to end the match.
