The girls tennis team placed second in its triangular on Monday, Oct. 5, losing against Lansing but winning over Bonner Springs at home. The team went 2-2 in singles and 2-2 in doubles for a record of 4-4 overall. 

Senior Sally Carey went 1-1 in singles, but faced tough competition at the meet.

“I was playing someone who put a ton of spin on the ball, and I’ve never played anyone who’s done that,” Carey said. “The ball would bounce, and then, instead of coming straight on its regular course, it would spin off in a random direction.”

To combat this and get a better score, Carey said she will be more energetic while playing.

“[In order to try harder next time], we need to be on our toes and more ready,” Carey said.

Carey also recognizes how her game has improved throughout the season, despite this challenge.

“If I was down, I would realize I need to put much more effort in, and then come back,” Carey said.

Senior Shelby Hudson and her partner, junior Alea Ashford, went 1-1 in doubles.  Hudson notes that although this score was not perfect, there were some positive outcomes to playing at the meet.

“I think Alea and I did really well together,” Hudson said. “Personally, my groundstrokes were a lot better and I wasn’t afraid up at the net. In the past two meets I’ve competed at, I just played at the baseline.”

Hudson accredits the team’s success to its players, who share a strong bond on the court.

“Number one doubles, [senior] Katie [Burke] and [senior] Paige [Weibe] did phenomenal,” Hudson said. “They get along really well and you can just see they work really well together.”

The girls tennis team finished their season with a JV meet at Bonner on Tuesday.
