Mira Costa’s girls tennis team fell to Peninsula High School 6-12 at Peninsula on Tuesday. Top performances from doubles players sophomore Olga Nagy and freshman Kacey Feng.

Costa began the match with Nagy and Feng won one set 6-1 in first position and sophomores Peyton Douglas and Lindsay Giese won one set 6-4 in doubles. In singles, sophomore Audrey Vo won two sets 6-3 and 6-1. Collectively Costa won three doubles sets and three singles sets.

“We played the best that we could,” Feng said. “The teams scores were not the best today but it was good practice for our home match against PV on Thursday, which is another really strong team.”

Costa, now 8-4 overall and 2-3 in Bay League, will go on to play West Torrance tomorrow at West Torrance High. The Mustangs competed well against the Panthers in the loss to the #2 ranked team in Division 1 said coach Joe Ciasulli.

“We all played well and gave our best efforts,” Nagy said. “Overall if we would have just pulled through on the crucial points maybe we could have won.”
