Landerfelt wins at San Jose tennis event
Madelyn Landerfelt of Minden was perfect in her flight during singles competition last weekend at the Niru’s Tennis Academy Junior UTR Round Robin tournament in San Jose.
Landerfelt, 17, a Douglas High School senior, won three straight one-set singles tests Saturday and Sunday. She came out on top by a 6-1 score against Martina Marica of San Jose, 6-3 over Tanima Joshi of San Francisco and 6-2 over Taylor Lim of San Jose.
The last win was significant since Lim had previously defeated Landerfelt in a three-set tournament match last fall (6-4, 3-6, 6-3). Lim, a Evergreen Valley High School senior, is coming off a successful fall season in which she advanced to the CIF Central Coast Section Tournament girls singles quarterfinals.
Landerfelt was a three-time region tournament girls singles runner-up for the Douglas Tigers in 2013-15.
