2016 GIRLS TENNIS
The 2016 season has started and we have another great group of student athletes. We miss the 5 seniors from last year’s team but are excited to watch this team progress along the way. Only two players from last year’s varsity return but we add a player, with 2 years varsity experience, who was injured last season. We will do our best to get the newbies ready for varsity action.
We fought hard at the sectional finals against #13 Marion. The players competed at a high level of skill and effort to give us chances to win as a team. The seniors, Sarah and Allison, were the lone winners.
We defeated MG in the first round of the sectionals. After being down 4-1, early in the match, we settled down and competed well enough to overtake the Argylls 3-2 to advance to the finals.
We finished in 4th place of 8 teams at the Concordia Tournament. Haleigh finished 2nd\, losing in the finals to Canterbury, Sarah finished in 3rd, only losing to Canterbury, and Allison finished in 2nd, losing in the finals to Canterbury.
5-0 win over Frankton concludes our conference season…We finish tied atop of the CIC. This gives us four straight CIC championships!
Win over Southwood, 5-0 puts us at 13-2 on the season. With a win over Frankton, we secure at least a tie for the conference title!
The Lebanon Tourney was not a complete rain out…we had a fun day getting a little tennis in!
It feels good to get back on track with a 5-0 conference win!
Close loss to Alexandria gives us our first conference loss since 2013.
We were only able to play one match at the Peru Tournament due to rain.
We had a great win over a good Madison Grant team to keep perfect in the conference! Both of our teams (varsity and JV) competed very well!
The team is starting to play better. We won the Muncie Central Tournament and are looking forward to playing in the Peru Invitational on Saturday.
