    LITTLETON — Chatfield senior Jenna Alvarez has handled her demotion better than most.

    “Honestly, playing No. 2 doubles is frustrating after playing No. 1 doubles last year,” Alvarez said during the Class 5A Region 8 girls tennis tournament May 5 at Ken Caryl Ranch House. “The girls at No. 1 doubles right now have been together so long it didn’t make sense to split them up. I love my partner and we are doing so well.”
