TUCSON, Ariz. -- Second seeded Lucinda Gurney of Palos Verdes, Calif., defeated fourth seeded Tracy Ishii of Torrance, Calif., 6-4, 6-2, Sunday to win the girls 14s singles title at the Easter Bowl junior tennis tournament.
Gurney's 77 minute baseline triumph came a day after her older sister, 14-year-old Melissa, had captured the girls 18s championship and marked the first time in the 17 year history of the tournament that the same family had won two championships the same year.
Lucinda is 13.
The girls 16s title went to unseeded Amy Schwartz of N. Miami, Fla., with a 6-4, 6-1 triumph over sixth seeded Halle Cioffi of Knoxville, Tenn.
In winning her first major national title, Schwartz broke serve for 5-4 in the first set and won the set when Cioffi made two groundstroke errors from 30-30 in the next game.
In the final set of the 76 minute match, Schwartz won the last six games.
Third seeded David Kass of Columbus, Ohio, defeated fourth seeded Martin Blackman of New York, 6-2, 7-5, to win the boys 14s championships.
The tournament, sponsored by Head, was played at the Sheraton El Conquistador Resort.
