WINNETKA — Despite competing in arguably the state’s deepest sectional, the New Trier girls tennis team had all four of its entrants advance to next week’s state tournament. In the process, the Trevians won the New Trier Sectional comfortably on Saturday.

The Trevians finished first and second in doubles. Senior Laura Swenson and junior Catherine MacKinnon defeated junior Tess Lubin and sophomore Nikki Katz 6-3, 6-1 in the championship match.

New Trier’s Cammy Frei, a junior, and Taylor Tamblyn, a senior, took third and fourth in singles, respectively. Northside freshman Nicole Roc knocked off Niles North freshman Michelle Bacalla 6-4, 6-2 to win the sectional’s singles title. The freshmen are both contenders for the state singles title this year.

Bacalla led the Vikings (14 points) to a second-place finish behind New Trier (31). Loyola edged Northside 13-12 for third. Ramblers sophomore Caroline Witkowski and senior Abby Witkowski both advanced to the state meet by finishing third in doubles.

Regina and North Shore Country Day tied for fifth with eight points, while Evanston (seven) took seventh and Niles West (four) was eighth. Evanston juniors Jessica Ampel and Abbey Moore finished fourth in doubles to advance to the three-day state meet, which is scheduled to begin on Thursday.
