Bacharach and Becker dropped the first set 4-6 to Granite Bay’s top pair, but rallied to win the next two sets 6-4, 6-4 to claim the title. “Beating (Granite Bay) in singles and doubles gives us a lot of confidence for when we meet them in the section finals,” Del Oro coach Jill Tooker said. The Sac-Joaquin Section Division II team tournament begins Monday with Del Oro visiting Oak Ridge at 2 p.m. The section singles and doubles tournaments begin Nov. 14 at Johnson Ranch.
