JV Tennis Team Faces Varsity Squad

February 22, 2013
Charger Boys 1:Indian Rocks Boys 6
Charger Girls 4: Indian Rocks Girls 0

Last Friday, Shorecrest’s JV tennis team played host to Indian Rocks Christian’s varsity squad. Casey R (#1), Joshua S (#2), Mitchell G (#3), and Scott M (#4) all played well, but unfortunately they ended up dropping their singles matches.  The “Match of the Day” for the boys has to go to sixth grader William F.  William playing in the #5 position found himself down 1-5 early, but after that William turned around his play and went on to win 8-5.  Congratulations William!

On the girls’ side the outcome was better.  Before the beginning of warm-ups, Michelle M (#1) suffered a minor injury which forced Adrianna Linn to step into the number one position in singles. Adrianna maintained her calm and played a wonderful match defeating IRC’s number one player by the score of 8-4.  Bella R (#2) also played a beautiful match taking care of her opponent 8-2. The “Match of the Day” for the girls is given to Rina L (#4).  Rina, in only her second start as a sixth grader, found herself in a marathon of a match.  Rina kept the match close, and the two of them played a 10-point tiebreaker at 8-all. Rina came out the victor winning 9-8 (10-5).  Well played! In doubles, Adrianna and Bella had an easy time winning 6-0.

Next Week’s JV Tennis Matches:
Monday (3/4) home v. St. Stephens 4:00
Wednesday (3/6) home v. Admiral Farragut 3:30
