On Thursday Sept 17 the girls tennis team traveled to Brookville for a league match against the Blue Devils. In a contest where the Eagles were strongly favored, mother nature decided to get involved and make it a windy day which tends to neutralize the stronger opponent. However, despite the wind, the Eagles were able to make the necessary adjustments and handle all five courts without too much trouble. To make matters worse for Brookville they had a last minute scratch to their lineup which caused some extra pressure for them. I give them absolute credit and respect because many of their players were put in a tough spot and they stepped up and played hard given the circumstances. I admire players like that.
The girls tennis team is now 5-0 in the SWBL and 13 -1 overall. They’ll have some fun playing in a doubles tournament at Chaminade Julienne on Saturday and then will get prepared for a stout ST Ursula team and then a showdown with Oakwood next week.
