The Girls Varsity tennis team began their season by winning our home (6-1) opener when we hosted a good team from Miss Porter’s School today. Everyone played well with many games going to deuce, and courteous competition covered all the courts. Suffield players also exhibited patience as they endured high winds today, especially during most of the second sets. The long afternoon closed with a great team image. Everyone enjoyed Jaclyn’s cupcakes and supported Alex while she put together a great third set with reduced errors and increased pressure on her opponent’s ground stroke game. Our next match will be away at Westover.
Shout out goes to our team captains for their leadership for helping us prepare for a great, first match.
