FARMINGTON — The Farmington High School girls tennis team put on a dominant display over the weekend.
The Lady Scorpions took the top two places at the FHS Tennis Invite on Saturday in Farmington.
The girls varsity team defeated its junior varsity team 7-2 in the finals to claim the championship.
The Lady Scorps' JV was placed in the bracket after Taos High school pulled out of the event.
"The trouble with tennis is the limited amount of kids you can play," FHS head coach Pat McGrath said. "Taos was not able to come so we were able to put a second team in."
The second string Lady Scorps won their pool with Piedra Vista and Miyamura, defeating the Lady Panthers 6-3 and the Lady Patriots 8-1.
The varsity squad took care of Espanola Valley 8-0 and Grants 6-3 in pool play to set up the all-FHS final.
"The finals was a difficult match for the first string with all the pressure on them, and it showed with some close matches," McGrath said. "We are improving but we haven't developed an identity yet that the past teams have had. The problem is we have a lot of girls who are very close making it tough to decide what the line up will be."
The JV squad got two victories at No. 3 and No. 6 singles from Brianna Horvath and Arin Coleman, while Payton Sandavol pushed Sydney Schumacher to three sets at No. 1 singles.
The varsity swept the three doubles matches, and Danielle Nguyen, Liza Briody-Pavlik and Riley Coleman joined Schumacher with singles victories.
Farmington will compete again next weekend at the Taos tournament.
"We are half way through the season and we are three for three in tournaments," McGrath said. "We have one month to figure it out and I have a feeling each week will be different."
