After dropping the season opener to visiting Cosumnes Oaks 6 to 3, the River City High School tennis team reeled off four straight wins last week.  A 9 to 1 win over Amador started the streak as boys singles players Alan Tern and Joseph Johnston led the way with 6-0,6-0 and 6-0,6-2 wins, respectively.  The mixed doubles pair of Phillip Dinh and Jessie Olsen also impressed with their 10-1 win.

A 7 to 2 road victory over Liberty Ranch came next as the Raiders dominated the doubles matches.  Matthew Tagupa and Muradan Chhay teamed for a 6-0,6-0 win at #1 boys doubles and Alex Vigil paired with Dinh to take #2 boys 6-0,6-1.  In girls doubles, Lily He and Beatrice Bui came back from a second set loss to win at #1 6-2,3-6,(10-3) and Jessica Ngo and Jasmine Benafghoul cruised to a 6-2,6-1 win at #2.  Akshay Prabhakar and Olsen won easily in mixed, 6-1,6-0.

The Bear River Bruins left West Sacramento after losing to the Raiders 7 to 2.  Lily He played her best tennis of the young season in a 6-0,6-0 win at #1 girls singles, Julia Quenga took the #2 match 6-0,6-4, and RC swept all five doubles matches again.

The week ended with an 8 to 1 win over visiting Lindhurst as Tern, He, and Quenga took care of their opponents in singles and the girls doubles pairs of Nicole Melido and Bui (6-1,6-2 at #1) and Carlie Blevins and Benafghoul (6-1,6-0 at #2) breezed past the Blazer duos.

River City High School’s girls soccer team won its “Raider Cup Classic” tournament held Feb. 28 and March 1.

The rainy-weekend victory came over 11 visiting varsity teams from Summerville to Nevada Union.

The Raiders faced Armijo High in the finals on Saturday. It was a game of “continuous action,” reports RCHS coach Kamal Singh, with River City prevailing 2-0.

The Raider varsity was anchored on the offense by Jaylem Crim and Keionna Claypoole; in the midfield by Andrea Salcedo, Taylor Martin and Crystal Carroll; and on defense by Annie Wampler, Valeria Salcedo, Marinna Vigil, Melissa Whitesell, Dianerick Ramirez and goalkeeper Erin Delany.

The Raiders defense yielded zero goals during the whole tournament, helping to win its preliminary tournament matches 5-0, 7-0 and 1-0.
The team lost sophomore starting center Hildelice Medina to a season-ending knee injury in the second game.

“You learn to make adjustments,” said Coach Kamal Singh later. “Soccer is a team sport, and I told the girls they had to step up to fill the void of not having Hildelice. (Winning) this tournament was no accident. These girls have been training hard and wanted to win this tournament and make River City Girls Soccer history.”

The team is off to a 7-0 start to its season.
