Athlete Of The Week - Elise Derby
September 15, 2010
Elise Derby, a sharp-serving senior standout on Oakdale High’s varsity girls tennis team, has been lights out in early Valley Oak League action.

The returning No. 1 singles player hasn’t missed a beat since 2009 success; shellacking singles players from Lathrop, Sonora and Manteca in one-sided wins and a 9-0 total tally.

She went 18-5 in three match wins against Lathrop on Thursday, earning Athlete of the Week honor for her efforts.

Oakdale, which has qualified for the playoffs after lucky coin-flip calls each of the past two seasons, will rely heavily on success from Derby as they work through league action this season.
