The Cardinals swept the doubles play with the second doubles match finding the Spartans tandem of Nikki Olsen (Mohnton, Pa./Governor Mifflin) and Emily Price (Hampstead, Md./North Carroll) dropping a narrow 8-6 loss.
Catholic was strong in singles play as they won all six singles matches in straight sets. Lauren Valles (East Northport, N.Y./Northport) had the closest singles match as she fell 6-4, 6-2 in the fifth singles match.
