Basha 5, Chandler 4: For the first time the school that Eddie Basha helped found defeated his alma mater in tennis. Chandler was coming off a tight victory over Perry, and, despite losing 2 of their top 3 players from 2012, has a young team with a lot of potential. Sophomore Julia Ortiz is one of the top players in the East Valley, only losing to Hamilton in singles so far this year. Basha was playing without its regular No. 4 starter, which meant it had to move the bottom three players each up a slot and alter our No. 3 doubles team. Briley Rucker won a huge third-set tiebreaker in singles to even the match at 3-3 going into doubles. The star of the match was Basha's No. 2, Jewel Brundrett, with a singles victory (6-1, 6-1) and then teaming with captain Luz Garcia to win the decisive doubles match, 9-7.
