The Arroyo Grande High girls tennis team continues its quest for history on Friday in Claremont.
The Eagles, guided by head coach Lori Hollister, battles Laguna Hills at 10:30 at the Claremont Club in the CIF Division 3 Finals. AG is playing in its first CIF final since 1983 in search of its first-ever title.
Arroyo Grande is 20-1 and coming off its third-straight undefeated run through Pac 7 League play. The #2 seed in the division has cruised through the playoffs. The Eagles routed La Reina 17-1 in the first round, blanked Oakwood on the road 18-0 in the second round and topped Capistrano Valley 11-7 in the quarterfinals. Wednesday, the Eagles dominated Aliso Niguel 17-1 for a spot in its first final in nineteen years.
Laguna Hills upset #1 seeded Malibu in the semifinals 11-7.
This marks the Eagles' third-straight opponent from the Sea View League. Capistrano Valley was the league's #1 seed, Laguna finished second and Aliso Niguel was the league's #3 seed for the playoffs.
As of 9:30am, the courts were dry in Claremont and rain was not in the forecast until late afternoon.
