HUGE win against a very good Madison Grant team! We knew going in we would have to be at our best as MG returned their entire varsity and are much more experienced then us. Very tight match throughout that came down to a three setter to determine it.
Colleen and Blaine played great singles against two very solid players on Crouse and McGuire. Colleen got us started by her big win as she had lost a three setter to McGuire last year in conference play. She did a great job of being consistent with her shots all match. Blaine also played very well and mixed up her shots nicely against their top senior. Blaine keeps learning on the run at the 1S spot and shows great toughness throughout her match.
Being up 2-0, Jordan came off after playing a tight 1st, could not get her consistency to match Gunning to make the score 2-1. A very close 1D match saw the Tigers fall as Megan & Anna lead in both sets but could not finish them off and to MG credit they played very well attacking the net
The match tied 2-2 saw the 2D team walk out to start the final set. Everyone knew it was the deciding point and the Tigers did not flinch taking a big lead by attacking and settling the tone early. Mary & Madelyn worked wonderfully together and played the best they have so far in this early season.
