UTICA — The Oneida girls tennis team won their third straight Section III title with a 7-0 victory over Christian Brothers Academy Saturday at Parkway Tennis Courts.
The Indians improved their mark to a perfect 19-0 and only lost one match in going 20-1 in three sectional matches. Bri Laureti, Lexi Skibitski and Lauren Skibitski swept the singles for Oneida.
The doubles teams, that haven’t lost a match the entire season, also were dominant. The lone close match was in first doubles as Oneida’s Sam Lusher and Jillian Brodock rallied after dropping the opening set for a 2-6, 7-6 (3), 6-0 victory. The teams of Claire Mancerella/Jenna Russ, Julianna Cavanaugh/Kylie Chesebro and Deanna DiFabio/Hanna Hood won in straight sets.
The Indians now turn their focus to individual sectionals which begin Wednesday. The finals are set for Friday at Liverpool High School.
