We Played Some of Our Best Tennis Today

Suffield Academy Girls Tennis versus Deerfield Academy, April 17, 2013

The girls took advantage of our great spring weather today to put forth their best tennis this season. Deerfield’s squad was disciplined by managing their errors and sustaining quality shots with depth. On all the courts, our players matched groundstrokes very well all afternoon. At number two singles, Emily Hudson pulled out a victory from a long second set. Sarah Berchuck secured her fifth win of the season; she remains undefeated. Everyone else earned Tiger Pride as many games went to deuce and contained great rallies. The scores do not tell the whole story. Millie and Hailey fought back from 1-5 in the first set to force a tie-break. We are now working on serves more this week and gearing up for a good match against Berkshire.

About Bill Sullivan

I am an English teacher working with great students at Suffield Academy. I also teach seniors in various project-based learning environments. Some of the #PBL topics included global issues, such as Pandemics, Climate Change, and Water; more recently I have asked students to research and identify topics important to our school community and their generation. We curate these topics with a #StudentCenteredPBL. For the past eleven years, I also created a driving question for a class to research a local history mystery and present their findings in a community program partnering with our local historical society. These topics encompass researching the lives of enslaved individuals who were contributors to the foundation of our community.
