On Wednesday afternoon the girls tennis team got back to work on their brand new courts by hosting Wilmington. In only their second match and after just a couple of practices they’re still getting used to the surroundings but before you know it, it will feel like home. It’s just little nuances. The courts play a little slower, the wind and back drop are different, and even the placement of the spectators changed from the old location. The crowd is a little more on top of them than before. Otherwise, the team has been coming ready to play as they showed against Wilmington.
The Eagles had complete control of the match right from the start. After a couple of rough matches the doubles teams put together strong performances and got easy wins. The singles girls continued their winning ways only dropping 1 game between the three of them. In a rare occurrence, the 1st singles court was the last to finish. Wilmington has a really solid player at 1st singles who can hit the ball well. Despite the lopsided score, the girls had many competitive games and long points. Macy had to work for this win, which is a good thing. I give her credit for dominating the score because her opponent was no pushover.
After many trips to Cincinnati we were happy that Wilmington was willing to travel to us. After we lost all of our matches with GWOC schools, they reached out to schedule a match. That was nice of them to do.
The Eagles on a bit of a winning streak are now 12-1 in match play with league rival Brookville on deck for Thursday 17th.
