Stanford-bound Hardebeck, Scholl beat top seeds

   Krista Hardebeck, a Stanford-bound resident of Santa Ana, and Chalena Scholl of Pompano Beach, Fla., upset top-seeded Ellen Allgurin of Sweden and Eugenie Bouchard of Canada 6-4, 6-4 Wednesday in the first round of girls 18 doubles at the prestigious Orange Bowl in Plantation, Fla.
   Hardebeck, the top female recruit in the nation, and Scholl are scheduled to meet Peggy Porter of Dallas and -- take a deep breath -- Clementina Eugenia Riobueno de Paola of Venezuela on Thursday. Porter and Riobueno de Paola advanced by a walkover from Katy Dunne of Great Britain and Deborah Kerfs of Belgium.
   Meanwhile, three players from the San Francisco Bay Area reached the girls 16 doubles semifinals.
   Unseeded Caroline Doyle of San Francisco and Kimberly Yee of Las Vegas, who stunned top-seeded Katie Boulter of Great Britain and Alexandra Morozova of Plantation in the first round, routed eighth-seeded Alexandra and Madison Bourguignon of Issaquah, Wash., 6-1, 6-2.
   Unseeded Hadley Berg of Greenbrae and Mary Closs of Menlo Park downed third-seeded Rasheeda McAdoo, a Palmetto Bay, Fla., resident and the daughter of basketball Hall of Famer Bob McAdoo,  and Johnnise Renaud of North Miami, Fla., 6-1, 7-6 (5).
   Doyle, the reigning Easter Bowl champion in girls 16 singles, also advanced to the third round of that event with a 7-5, 6-2 victory over -- what is it with these names? -- Tornado Ali Black of Boca Raton, Fla.
   Hillsborough's Connor Farren, the last remaining player in boys or girls 18 singles, lost to 16th-seeded Hassan Ndayishimye of Burundi 6-3, 6-3 in the second round.
   But Farren, Mackenzie McDonald of Piedmont and Stanford-bound Trey Strobel of Bradenton, Fla., moved into the second round of boys 18 doubles with separate partners.
   Farren is seeded sixth with Marco Aurelio Nunez of Mexico. McDonald is playing with Filip Peliwo of Canada, and Strobel is teaming with Markos Kalovelonis of Greece.
