Fallbrook netter Savannah Homuth was among the division winners at the 33rd annual Fallbrook Fall Junior Satellite Tournament which was played Sept. 7-9 at the Fallbrook Tennis Club.

Homuth teamed with Clayton Jones of Palm Springs to win the Mixed 14 Doubles division. They faced the Fallbrook duo of Leyla Homuth and Quentin Deming in the final, and a pair of 6-2 sets gave Savannah Homuth and Jones the championship.

The Fallbrook duo of Quentin Deming and Leyla Homuth made it to the finals in Mixed 14 Doubles at the Fallbrook Fall Junior Satellite Tournament at the Fallbrook Tennis Club.

Savannah Homuth and Jones had advanced to the final with a three-set semifinal victory against San Diego players Evelyn Grisco and Aidan Wong. Grisco and Wong won the 6-2 first set. The second set was tied at six games apiece, which triggered a tiebreaking game to seven points, and Homuth and Jones were on the winning end of the 7-3 tiebreaker. Homuth and Jones then prevailed in the 6-4 third set to advance to the final.

Leyla Homuth and Deming defeated the San Diego tandem of Noelle Dang and Dylan Truong in a 6-3, 6-4 semifinal.

The Homuth sisters also both reached the finals of singles divisions. Savannah Homuth played Grisco in the Girls 14 Singles championship match Grisco won by a 6-4, 6-0 score. Leyla Homuth and Chaeyule Kang were in the Girls 12 Singles final; Kang won the 7-6 first set by winning the 7-4 tiebreaking game and then prevailed in the 6-1 second set.

Deming reached the Boys 14 Singles semifinal before losing a 6-2, 6-2 match to Temecula's Jensen Davis, who subsequently defeated Matthew Wang of Oceanside in the 6-4, 7-5 championship match.

"Fallbrook had a pretty good showing actually," said tournament organizer Rex Neilson.
