Academy Park’s Rajah Azor and Penn Wood’s Ixchele Ortiz played to a rare 6-6 (10-10) tie in their No. 1 single match Monday. It had the makings of a Del Val League classic.
Unfortunately, Ortiz had to retire after the first set due to injury, awarding Azor the match victory. AP’s No. 1 doubles tandem of Taylor Smith and Aasiyah Bey won their match to seal the Knights’ 3-2 victory.
Cheyenne Phillips won 6-0, 6-1 at No. 3 singles for Academy Park, which won its fifth straight Del Val title last week. Penn Wood’s Sallay Ghollie battled Camille Erskine to a 2-6, 7-6 (9-7), 6-4 victory.
