District tennis: Carrollwood wins A-8 girls title

Carrollwood Day notched a first in Thursday's Class A, District 8 tournament at Hillsborough Community College. The Patriot girls won the school's first district title in any sport, according to coach John Most.

CDS, led by sisters Jacque and Lauren Fitz-Randolph, beat Tampa Prep. Jacque Fitz-Randolph topped Academy at the Lakes' Daniella Moreno-Kaste 6-3, 6-1 at No. 1 singles. Her sister beat Berkeley Prep's Yunhan Xu 6-1, 6-1 at No. 2. The sisters also teamed up for a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 1 doubles, which they also won a year ago.

Tampa Prep beat out Berkeley Prep for the boys title with both teams advancing to Tuesday's regionals.

Qualifying for state as an individual was the Fitz-Randolphs' brother, Eric. He saved two match points at No. 1 singles to knock off top-seeded Jake Gabay of Tampa Prep 2-6, 7-6, 7-5.

"I am so very proud of the effort and desire given by all of our players," Most said. "They display great character and pride on and off the courts."
