NorCal juniors gain quarters in Winter Nationals

   Four Northern California juniors reached the singles quarterfinals in their age groups at the USTA National Winter Championships in Arizona.
   Advancing today were 17th-seeded Austen Huang of Elk Grove in the boys 16s, fourth-seeded Sara Choy of Palo Alto and sixth-seeded Katie Volynets of Walnut Creek in the girls 14s, and top-seeded Aidan Mayo of Roseville in the boys 12s.
   Volynets won the USTA Girls 12 National Championships in Alpharetta, Ga., in August, and Mayo captured the boys 12 consolation title in last week's Junior Orange Bowl in Coral Gables, Fla.
   Mayo also advanced to the doubles semifinals of the Winter Nationals with Billy Suarez of Huntington, N.Y. The top-seeded pair will meet fourth-seeded Hugo Hashimoto of San Jose and Alex Lin of Granite Bay.
   The boys and girls 18s and 16s are being played in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the 14s and 12s in Tucson, Ariz.
