Nelson reaches last 16 in Junior Orange Bowl 12s

   Northern California's hopes in the Junior Orange Bowl now rest with Priya Nelson.
   The seventh-seeded Nelson, from Sacramento, topped Marylove Edwards of Nigeria 7-6 (2), 6-2 today to reach the round of 16 in the girls 12s at the Junior Orange Bowl on clay in Coral Gables, Fla.
   Nelson, who won the Easter Bowl 12s in March, will face unseeded Mao Mushika of Japan in the singles-only tournament. Mushika routed Ada Jane De Alcantara of Boca Raton, Fla., 6-1, 6-1. Nelson could face second-seeded Sofia Costoulas of Belgium in the quarterfinals.
   Fourth-seeded Vivian Ovrootsky of San Jose and unseeded Hina Inoue of Los Gatos lost in the girls 14s. No. 17 seed Klara Milicevic of Sweden outlasted Ovrootsky, who won the Eddie Herr 14s two weeks ago on hard courts in Bradenton, Fla., 3-6, 6-4, 6-3. China's Li Zongyu, also seeded 17th, beat Inoue 6-4, 6-4.
