Valencia and Hart high tennis both took care of business on Thursday and now set up the biggest match of the Foothill League season next Tuesday.

The Valencia Vikings did so by defeating the Canyon Cowboys 16-2 at Canyon High.

Hart defeated Golden Valley 16-2 on Thursday.

In the Vikings’ victory, their doubles completely swept the Grizzlies with two set wins from Remy Balmain and Morgan Meunitz and Amanda Braun and Lauren Wolf.

Five other different doubles teams took care of the rest.

In singles, Valencia got two wins each from Tina Inchalik, Katelyn Choi and Sabrina Wueste.

Wueste was the only Viking to take down Canyon No. 1 Katrina DeGuzman with a 7-6 (7-4) victory.

DeGuzman won her other sets 6-3, 6-1.

Valencia (13-3 overall, 7-1 Foothill League) lost the first matchup to Hart 12-6 at Valencia High on Oct. 3.

A win would keep the Vikings in the league title hunt.

They have won 10 of the last 11 titles, including a shared crown with Hart last year.

Hart 16, Golden Valley 2

Hart girls tennis defeated Golden Valley at Golden Valley High.

Natalia Munoz and Jackie Munoz won all of their sets without dropping a game.

Alex La Forteza won two of three singles sets.

In doubles, the No. 3 team of Cassidy Wilkinson and Sheridan Mott won three sets.

Bailey Sindle and Lauen Dam won the two sets they played as did the No. 2 doubles team of Carissa Costanzo and Maddison Ladanyi.

Hart is now 8-0 in league and 15-0 overall.

For Golden Valley, singles player Isabeau Lauron won a set 6-3.

Grizzlies doubles team Emily Cuadros and Siyana Andreeva won 6-3.

Golden Valley is now 4-10 overall and 1-7 in league.

West Ranch 13, Saugus 5

West Ranch (7-5, 4-3) won eight of nine sets on the singles side Thursday and added another five on the doubles side to defeat Saugus and clinch third place in the Foothill League, which guarantees the Wildcats a spot in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs.

Saugus changed things up, hoping to take more sets on the doubles side by teaming singles No. 1 Carlie Ozaki and No. 2 Megan Cho, but those two could manage just one set victory in doubles play.

Saugus’ No. 1 doubles team of Caren Rosen and Rachel Callas won two sets 6-1, 6-2

With Saugus being 10-5 overall and with a 2-6 mark in the Foothill, it is holding on to hope for an at-large playoff berth.
