In what is normally a lopsided win for MVS, the Eaton girl’s varsity tennis team was able to turn the tables on the Rams for the first time ever. However, despite the 5-0 score, the matches were competitive in some spots and there was some quality tennis played as the MVS players are certainly no strangers to tennis courts. Macy continues to showcase a high level of consistent tennis but is really going to need to step up her game in the coming weeks if she wants to do big things in post season play. At 2nd singles, Sophia had a formidable opponent, who could exchange the same powerful shots. Sophia won her first set easily but then quickly found herself down 2-5 in the second. After a little talk, she was able to gather herself, reach down and show some true fight and heart and in dramatic fashion won 5 straight games. That was a great comeback from Soph. I was truly proud that she found a way to fight back. That sometimes goes missing but today she made it happen. That definitely needs to stick around for league and post season play. Grace held her opponent at bay as she played fundamental tennis and waited for the right time to go for her shots. The Eaton double’s teams both got back on track after a tough day at Beavercreek. They’ll both have to step up their games as Tipp City comes to town on Monday and their doubles teams already have wins against the Eagles. Tipp is a solid team. Our girls definitely want a rematch at doubles and our singles will need to be focused. This is Eaton’s last dual match of the season which coincidently will be Senior Night for the Eagles. This win over MVS brings the Eagles to 15-2 for the season.
