"We played a very competitive match against St. Thomas More. Sarah had good wins at #5 singles and #3 doubles (with Savannah). Lauren came from behind to win a tie breaker and Zazzee played steady tennis to win her #6 singles match," said coach Barb Rickord. "Our score against Madison indicates improvement since we played them last week, but I definitely feel that most of the girls played better and came away more satisfied with their matches. All I ask is for them to try to improve with each match, and they are making the effort. The wind was also certainly a factor, especially for our less-experienced JVers."
