Cade Sorensen won three sets in singles for Santa Barbara High in Wednesday’s first-round CIF match but the Dons fell 14-4 to Marlborough.

Sorensen, a senior who has been Santa Barbara’s dependable No. 1 singles player all season long, swept 6-0, 6-2, 6-2. The doubles team of Eva Kershner and Alexia Berton claimed the Dons’ other point.

Dons head coach Sally Becker said the team battled and turned in a well-played match. Despite the loss, the young team improved greatly over the course of the season.

“We are looking forward to next season now that we have gained a lot of experiences and grit, determination and lasting friendships,” Becker reported.
