Girls tennis

Krista Thomson, last year's runner-up, expects her biggest challenge for the Section VI girls tennis title to come from a freshman.

The Orchard Park junior is the No. 1 seed in singles entering Friday and Saturday's competition at the Southtowns Tennis Center. Williamsville East ninth-grader Lindsey Shosho is seeded No. 2.

Thompson beat Shosho in the ECIC finals, but Shosho beat Thomson the week before in the finals of team championships. Thomson has the edge in experience, having played in three sectional tournaments while Shosho makes her sectional debut.

The favorites in doubles are sisters Nicole and Tricia Sargent of Hamburg.

Nicole, a senior, is looking for her fourth trip to states. They are seeded No. 1, coming off a win at the ECIC doubles qualifier last weekend. The No. 2 seeds are Kerry Kline and Jackie Rycyna of Williamsville East.
