Oceanside nets tennis title
(Page 2 of 2)
Oceanside 's girls' tennis team outlasted playoff opponents North Shore and Locust Valley by identical 4-3 margins to win the Conference II title.

With Mullins and Schwarz as anchors, doubles play was also comprised of senior captains Danielle Bloecker and Kelsey Bass in the No. 2 position, senior Rebecca Herz and sophomore Sami Bloecker at No. 3, and seniors Sara Dauber and Maggie Poulos at No. 4.

Della Rocca was impressed by the leadership displayed by Bloecker and Bass as captains in setting the tone for the team by organizing pasta dinners before matches and sleepovers throughout the season.

“The captains really did a phenomenal job bringing the team together,” she said. “The team really bonded.”

Della Rocca said a team dinner celebrating the magical 2013 season is planned prior to the Nov. 19 Oceanside school board meeting where girls tennis along with other standout fall teams and athletes will be recognized. The season brought such enjoyment to Della Rocca she wishes it could have gone on even longer.

“When the season was over it was sad,” she said. “This team really has a piece of my heart.”
