Santa Barbara's Sports News and Information Wednesday, October 24, 2012 Santa Barbara, California

Garrison, Kilstofte to meet for Channel League title Buena’s Caisey Lee Emery Santa Barbara High teammates Mattea Kilstofte and Summer Garrison will meet in Thursday’s Channel League Singles Championship after winning semifinal matches on Tuesday at Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club. Kilstofte defeated Buena’s Caisey Lee Emery 6-3, 6-0. It was an upset of sorts as Emery topped Kilstofte twice in the regular season and came into the tournament as the higher seed. “I was just trying to be aggressive. She’s a very good, consistent player,” Kilstofte said. “So I just had to be aggressive and play really well to beat her.” Kilstofte lost to Emery 6-1 last time they played. “It was a major turnaround and demonstrates the fine tennis that she can play,” said Dons head coach Steve Geremia of Kilstofte. Only a sophomore, Kilstofte will play in her second league championship. Top-seeded Garrison came from behind to top teammate – and housemate – Olivera Tadijin 4-6, 6-2, 6-2.

Tadijin, an exchange student from Serbia, is being hosted by the Garrisons. “We train together too, you know, so yesterday we starting looking at each other, looking for each other’s weaknesses,” Garrison said. Garrison’s serving was a weakness early on and helped Tadijin win the first set. “I have a new grip right now so I’m just frustrated with it. But then I just did second serve first and that kind of got me through,” Garrison explained. The championship match between Garrison and Kilstofte will be played on Thursday afternoon at a location to be determined. The singles tournament began on Monday with 15 players. The Channel League’s doubles tournament begins on Wednesday at Dos Pueblos.

Garrison, Grant-Hale beat SB teammates for Channel League titles Thursday, October 25, 2012 By Barry Punzal The Channel League girls tennis finals turned into a showcase for Santa Barbara High’s dominance in the sport on Thursday at the Knowlwood Tennis Club. The finalists in both singles and doubles were all Dons. The singles final was a matchup of sophomores. Summer Garrison rallied from a set down and defeated Mattea Kilstofte, 3-6, 6-0, 6-2. Garrison is the Dons’ first league champion since Rachel Decker Sadowski in 2007. Lauren Stratman of Dos Pueblos won four straight titles before moving on to Columbia in the Ivy League. In doubles, top-seeded and defending champions Megan Grant and Madison Hale fought back from double match point and pulled out a three-set victory over No. 3 Olivera Tadijin and Lexy Gulden, 4-6, 7-6 (0), 6-1. Grant-Hale rallied from a 40-15 deficit in the second set and rode that momentum for the rest of the match. All four finalists advance to the CIF Individual Regional Tournament on Nov. 19 in Carpinteria. While it might have looked like a Santa Barbara practice to the casual observer, the day was a testament to the strength and depth of the Dons team. “There’s a little different level of determination and effort they’re putting in; they’re not working on their game,” coach Steve Geremia said of the six players on the Knowlwood courts. “They’re trying to put the finished product out there. When we’re in practice, we’re always trying to improve something here and something there, but today was the final exam — go out and play as well as you can.” Kilstofte started strong in the singles final with Garrison, ripping forehands for winners to build a 3-1 lead. Garrison fought back, broke Kilsofte and won the next game with good serving to knot the set at 3-3. Kilstofte stepped up won a long seventh game and took a 5-3 lead after Garrison made back-to-back unforced errors. She closed out the set with some big serves. “The first set I played really well and it went down a little bit (after that), and Summer played really well,” said Kilstofte, who was playing in her second straight league final. Garrison came out aggressive in the second set and never let up. “I just kept more calm,” Garrison said after the first set loss. “In the first set, she was really grooving her shots and I realized I had to break up the momentum, so I started angling her wide a lot more.” As Garrison kept pressuring, Kilstofte struggled. She said afterward that she’d been feeling under the weather and wasn’t sharp. She regrouped in the third set and won a long fourth game to even the score at 2-2. Garrison regained the upper hand in the next game with some excellent shot making. She had a nice passing for a point and a beautiful lob that landed just inside the right sideline. Garrison used her powerful groundstrokes to keep Kilstofte on the defensive.


“My movement wasn’t the best it could have been today and my serving was inconsistent,” said Kilstofte. Garrison admitted her game wasn’t in top form. “I wasn’t at my peak, for sure. I was kind of having an off day. I was sticking to grounding it and not going too much out of my reach.” When reminded of the winning tradition at Santa Barbara, Garrison said, “It’s good to be a Don.” When they were a point away from losing the doubles title in the second set, Grant and Hale said they relied on their experience to pull out the set. “We just kept our heads and stayed calm,” said Hale. Said Grant: “We played so much together; we know how to hold ourselves together really well and we just kept playing good tennis.” Doubles teams lead the way for Dons Dons spikers even Channel League record Dons stride past Villa Park to start CIF march Presidio Sports Santa Barbara's Sports News and Information

(Presidio Sports Photo) Santa Barbara High’s doubles team of Olivera Tadijin and Lexy Gulden continued to defy expectations on Tuesday by defeating another league champion to reach Wednesday’s Round of 16 in the CIF Individual Tennis Tournament. Tadijin and Gulden, runner-ups in the Channel League, have beaten three league champion doubles teams to advance to Wednesday’s matches at the Seal Beach Tennis Center. “It’s so far above what anyone expected them to do,” explained Dons head coach Steve Geremia. On Tuesday, the Santa Barbara duo topped Pacific League champion Elizabeth Lieu and Annie Tung, from Arcadia High School, 7-6 (3), 6-0. “We competed well, we played well, we showed a lot of composure,” Geremia said. ”We had a plan and we were able to follow it.” The Dons trailed in the first set but held serve at 5-6 to force the tiebreaker. Once there, Santa Barbara recorded the final four points after a 3-3 tie to pocket the important first set.

Gulden-Tadijin eliminated in CIF Round of 16 Thursday, November 29, 2012 By Presidio Sports Comments The Santa Barbara High doubles team of Lexy Gulden and Olivera Tadijin joined forces late in the season, but they outlasted everyone in the area, reaching the Round of 16 in the CIF-SS Individual Tournament. The Dons’ run came to end on Wednesday as they fell to Alex Balenstein and Mikey Barthelmess of Laguna Hills, 6-1, 6-4, at the Seal Beach Tennis Center. “This tournament started with 1,056 entries and it’s made up of league champions or runners-up,” Santa Barbara coach Steve Geremia said. “You make it to the Round of 16, that’s a pretty great tournament. We’re so proud of our young women. They played very good tennis throughout.” Gulden and Tadijin were the Channel League runners-up, losing a tough three-set final against teammates Megan Grant and Madison Hale. The team was put together at the end of October and the players turned out to be a good fit. “They struck the ball very well,” Geremia said. “They played against a team that had more doubles experience. Both teams hit the ball the same. “We’re very proud of our team from Santa Barbara High.” -Garrison, Grant-Hale beat SB teammates for Channel League titles Dons dominate at Channel League Tournament Dons fall to No. 2 Dana Hills in quarterfinals Dons dominate in Channel League doubles Dons tennis wins seventh straight CIF match
