Devils get their due

Marika Cusick and Caroline Lorenzini are 20-1 heading into Saturday’s Hinsdale Central Sectional.

The Hinsdale Central juniors hope to become the school’s first repeat state tennis doubles champions since Courtney Dolehide and Nida Hamilton in 2006-07.

Cusick and Lorenzini’s only loss came in a dual meet against Alex Chatt and Kristen Thoms Sept. 6 at Lyons.

The Devils should be in contention for another state title in next week’s state meet. Hinsdale Central defeated New Trier 5-1 in a home dual meet Tuesday after losing to the Trevians 3-2 in its only dual-meet loss Oct. 1 at the Lake Forest Quad.
