The Lady Bruin netters fell to an extremely talented Madison-Grant team 5-0 on another windy Indiana evening.
Coach Smith shared, “On the positive side, we did win a few more games in the 5 varsity matches than we did last year. On the negative side, we still have a long way to go to be able to compete with the top teams in the conference. Hopefully we can get in a couple good practices later this week and address some of the deficiencies we talk about after the players matches.”
The JV team continues to improve. The doubles team of Brittaney Dillon and Gretchen Messersmith were able to split their two matches accounting for the only win of the night for the Bruins.
