PETERSBURG — The drive from Sebring to the Treasure Island Tennis and Yacht Club is just more than two hours. It took less than half that time for St. Petersburg Catholic to send the Blue Streaks packing. SPC won every match at love and rarely broke a sweat in steamrolling Sebring 7-0. The Barons advance to Thursday's region final, where a win would give them their third straight appearance in the state tournament. "I feel pretty confident about our girls' chances," St. Petersburg Catholic coach Brett Hayman said. Every Barons singles player won her match 6-0, 6-0, each in 30 minutes or less. Julia Jones (No. 1), Alyssa Bellini (2), Jerica Coley (3), Danielle Nickerson (4) and Molly Smith (5) were the Barons' five singles winners. Jones and Bellini teamed up at No. 1 doubles and Coley and Nickerson combined at No. 2 doubles to blank their opponents. "It was a short day of tennis for the girls," Hayman said. Class 4A: Dvorak still leading Green Devils Led by another strong effort from sophomore Emily Dvorak, host St. Petersburg took four of five singles from Lakeland and won 6-1 overall. Dvorak, Agatha Ambrozy, Suncica Beba and Tiffany Easton all won their respective singles matches in straight sets. "The girls squad definitely took care of business today," said coach Alan Turnquist. "They did a very good job out there." Class A: Shorecrest gets another shot at Berkeley For weeks, Shorecrest had its eyes trained far down the road toward a possible region final against Berkeley Prep. For that to happen, the Chargers had to get past Tampa Prep. Shorecrest did that, easily dispatching the Terrapins by winning four of five in singles. Tampa Prep decided not to play either doubles match. The Chargers started strong with wins by Morgan Basil at No. 1 and Kathryn Kamarnicki at No. 2. Shorecrest came back with Madi Klavans (No. 4) and Sydney Klavans winning. "The girls have been focused on getting to states," Chargers coach Elaine East said. Shorecrest faces Berkeley Prep on Thursday. The Chargers lost to the Buccaneers earlier this season. Class A: Canterbury shut out by Bucs Berkeley Prep's path to the state tournament last year had its share of bumps. The Buccaneers had to win a play-in match to make regionals, then won their next two matches by one point. The This year Buccaneers swept Canterbury 7-0, earning a match with rival Shorecrest on Thursday for a trip to state. Class 3A: Seminole comes out swinging Seminole won its first four singles matches against Largo to advance to Thursday's region final 6-1. Warhawks No. 1 Amy Lowther won 8-0 over Brianna Couture. Tara Lynn Carey was tied at 5-all with Valari Eisele before winning the final three games in an 8-5 victory at No. 2 singles. Lorenza Cuminetti registered Largo's only point after knocking off Kristin Thomas 8-6 at No. 5 singles. Class 3A: East Lake ends it for Gibbs again East Lake knocked Gibbs out of the playoffs for the second straight season with a 4-3 victory on the road. Gibbs led 3-2 after the singles matches, but East Lake won both doubles points to advance. The Eagles No. 1 doubles team of Laura Ospina and Raquel Moya rolled to a 6-0, 6-3 victory over Gibbs' Jibri Bailey and Dianeka Perrien, setting up a winner-take-all match at No. 2 doubles, where the Eagles' Karly Gilchrist and Natalie Mahy downed Gibbs' Ebony Lamar and Masani Bailey 7-6 (7-2), 6-3.
