The girls tennis team eagerly waits to begin their first meet of the season. The team won their first meet with a score of 5-0.

The varsity girls tennis team celebrated their first victory at the first meet of the season on Friday, April 5 against Hammond High School.

“We did really well as a team. Everyone on varsity won their matches,” said Kathryn Toth (12).

The girls overall won the meet with a final score of 5-0.

“We started off a little slow; the first sets took a little while to get into a groove but after that we flourished,” Toth said.

The team has potential to keep flourishing throughout the year, and the girls look forward to many more meets in which they hope to dominate at.

“I think we’ve worked really hard transitioning from conditioning from practice and all the girls put all their effort into getting better,” Emma Rogers (12) said.

The improvement and hard work paid off not only for the entire team, but individually, some girls celebrated their personal improvements.

“On this team, I have played doubles for the past three years, so when I was changed to number 2 singles, I think it is fair to say that I panicked a bit. I had been training for singles during practice, but it was overall a completely different experience,” Marlo Owczarzak (12) said.

Owczarzak won her first varsity singles match ever.

“I was used to always having someone else on the court with me and talking to them, and since I didn’t have that other person, I pretty much talked to myself the entire match,” Owczarzak said.

The girls started off their season on a high note and intend to make the remainder of their season as successful as their first meet.
