Girls Varsity Tennis · Girls Tennis Drops 2 at Lapel Invite

The Lady Bruins traveled to Lapel on Saturday to play host Lapel in the morning and then play New Castle in the afternoon. Things didn’t go to well for the team as they lost 5-0 in both matches. With Tori Baker out for the day, the Singles lineup had to be changed with Audrey Foster and Brittaney Dillon moving up to 1 and 2 singles. Calista Johns stepped in to play 3 singles for the day. The 3 ladies combined were only able to come up with two games total against their Lapel opponents. The New Castle match was a little closer as the three singles players came up with 13 games in that match, but were still swept in straight sets.

In doubles play, the 1D team of Ashley Willmann/Skylar Stephens played well In losing efforts against two of the better teams they have seen this season. The 2D team of Kayleigh Clevenger/Jenna Keplinger struggled throughout the day. Coach Smith shared, “Hopefully the two teams picked up on some of the things their opponents were doing to beat them and can use this to help improve their game.”
