On Thursday September 10th, the girl’s tennis team got another opportunity to make history by being the first team to break in their brand new tennis courts located on campus at Eaton High School. In what otherwise would’ve been just another home match for the Lady Eagles the day suddenly got a buzz and an energy to it when they found out they were going to be allowed to host league rival Valley View. To say the girls have been anxiously awaiting this moment would be a complete understatement.
The challenge of the day was just to make sure they knew they still had a match to play, and a league one to boot, where every court counts. Literally.
At match time, Eaton was focused at the task on hand. Our three singles players didn’t even drop a game, which is impressive and our doubles teams handled their courts fairly easy. First doubles had a bumpy start but then quickly got back on track and finished strong.
The win puts the Eagles at 4-0 in SWBL and 9-1 overall. They will be traveling to Sycamore on 9/11 and then turning back around to play Mariemont on 9/12 for the 2nd rd of the state team tournament.
