On a beautiful Saturday morning the Eaton Girl’s Varsity Tennis Team ran into a very well assembled Alter team and for the first time all season left the match without winning a court. As odd as it sounds, this was a very good match for us. First of all it was played in a slightly unusual manner. This was not a regular scheduled match for us. During the season we had a couple of cancellation and in the meantime Alter was really positioning themselves as the 2nd best team in the area behind Oakwood and we were the 4th ranked team in Division 2. So I reached out to the Alter coach trying to arrange a match full well knowing there was a slim chance of us winning it. That’s not what we were after though. I really wanted to see how we matched up #1, and #2, to show our girls that there is still a lot of work to do on our end. Two of the courts we were in. Grace at 2nd singles and Tess at 3rd singles had opportunities to win their matches. The Eagles have no reason to hold their head down as Alter has two singles players seeded and two doubles teams seeded in the upcoming Dayton sectional tournament. We definitely plan to schedule them for next year. If these girls really want to be the best, then you have to beat the best.
