HERMISTON - Hermiston's Rachel Berger didn't drop a game, cruising to a spot in the singles semifinals of the Intermountain Conference girls district tennis tournament Friday.

Berger won her first three matches by a combined score of 36-0. Berger, the No. 1 seed in the tournament, remained undefeated on the season.

Berger's opponent in the semifinals will be the No. 5 seed, Crook County's Shyla Hargrave, who dropped four games.

In doubles play, the No. 1 seed, Pendleton's team of Kory Waterland and Nicole Jones was upset in the second round, while the other top-four seeded teams all advanced, including No. 3 Kristine Beamer and Allison Fry, of Pendleton, and the No. 4 team of Hermiston's Anna Frutchey and Michelle Hickey.

All four singles players and all four doubles teams that reached the semifinals qualify for next week's 4A state tournament.

Semifinal play will begin at 10 a.m. today, with the finals tentatively scheduled to start at 3 p.m.
