Manteca High’s girls tennis team continued its Valley Oak League title defense with a 9-0 shutout of visiting Lathrop on Tuesday.

The Buffaloes, who improved to 4-0 in league and 7-3 overall, dominated all three doubles matches, losing only a single game. At No.1 doubles, Alondra Avila and Jasmine Ellington defeated Lexi Bonifacio and Trisha Garlit, 6-0, 6-1. Manteca’s Kaitlyn Hoyer-Haylee Both and Yadria Avila-Gladis Sandoval tandems blanked their opponents.

Liz Diaz held off Jaynah Palma in the battle of No. 1 singles players. Sealy McAdams (6-0, 6-2), Elizabeth Tolbert (6-3, 6-4), Julia Saling (6-1, 6-2), Fechi Nkwocha (6-1, 6-1) and Allison Rachels (6-0, 6-0) took care of the rest.

Manteca looks to keep it rolling Thursday at Kimball.
