At the midpoint of North Bay League girls’ tennis season, Maria Carrillo is poised to break Montgomery’s run of league titles.

Led by returning All-Empire players Kathy Chu and Carly Chovick, the Pumas are undefeated going into Thursday’s matches. Maria Carrillo’s top doubles team is Lilla Orr and Rose Petrie.

Montgomery, winners of the past four NBL championships, is in second place and Ursuline is third.

Thursday’s matches have Rancho Cotate at Maria Carrillo, Montgomery at Ursuline, Santa Rosa at Ukiah, and Piner at Elsie Allen. All matches start at 3:30 p.m.

In the Sonoma County League, Healdsburg visits Casa Grande and El Molino hosts Windsor. Those matches are set for 4 p.m.
