Matt Blanchette


It was an emotional day for Aleksandra Drljaca and the entire Djljaca family. The East Greenwich junior, playing just days after her grandfathers death, rallied after losing the first set 6-4, to beat Smithfield's Jenna LaBarre, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

In doubles, the LaSalle pair of Annie Venditti and Natalie Pitocco beat East Greenwich's Julia Waicberg and Kerri Whelan.
