Cypress Bay boys, girls win district titles

 

Special to The Miami Herald

The Cypress Bay tennis teams, as they have done all season with the girls finishing the regular season unbeaten and the boys only sustaining one loss, trounced the competition in the District 13-4A final Tuesday at Midtown Athletic Club in Weston.

Cypress Bay, boasting a tennis program accustomed to state success — nearly swept every individual championship.

The only classification the Lightning failed to win was singles No. 2 on the girls’ side, and that was because Cypress Bay’s Shene Disbergen had to make an early exit in her first-round match on Monday because of a nosebleed.

Disbergen, a freshman returned Tuesday for the second day of the district final to pair up with Pierina Imparato, also a freshman, to win at the No. 1 doubles spot.

Imparato beat Antonella Santeusanio of St. Thomas Aquinas 6-2, 6-1 in the final of the singles No. 1 bracket. Imparato, known for her impregnable defense, played a more aggressive style to claim the individual district title.

“She was actually playing more offense, and she was attacking on the ball,” said Cypress Bay girls coach Marina Andreoni-Stewart, now in her ninth season with the Lightning. “Her defense was [also] very good.”

Andreoni-Stewart was blessed with an incoming freshman class that has bumped last season’s top players down in the rankings. Senior Barrie Gordon, who played at No. 1 singles last year, is now at the No. 4 position because of three international freshmen — Imparato (Venezuela), Disbergen (South Africa) and Sibel Can at No. 3 (half-Colombian).

“They’re young, but it’s easier to coach them,” Andreoni-Stewart said. “They’re very good players.”

The St. Thomas Aquinas girls’ team finished second in every classification except No.2 singles. The the Raiders’ Nia Bryant after Disbergen was eliminated early.

The Raiders’ boys and girls suffered their only loss on the season to Cypress Bay.

On the boys’ side, Ryan Smith led the Lightning with a 6-1, 6-2 victory over St. Thomas’ Daniel Torres.

The Lightning boys (11-1) is off to a strong postseason start as they look to defend last year’s Class 4A state championship.

The lone loss on the season came to state power Miami Dr. Krop, a match which coach Vince Grossi says made his team better prepared for a postseason run.
