Tennis wins back to back matchups

The tennis team faced off against a competitive New Prague squad on Thursday, September 7th, after a comprehensive 7-0 victory against Glencoe earlier in the week. That match saw decisive victories from Sophie Lynch (6-0, 6-0), Ally Agerland (6-0, 6-1), Maggie Berg (6-4, 6-1), and Laura Kirsch (6-4, 6-4) in singles. Lindsey Harris and Alexis Pricco also cruised to victory in doubles (6-1, 6-0).

New Prague proved to be a more difficult opponent. Having lost to them last year, the team hoped to bounce back in this home contest. Fortunately, they were able to string together a series of successful matches to beat New Prague 4-3.

Before the match, Sophie Lynch was asked how she felt about the matchup: “I am a little nervous, but am very confident and happy with my team and feel like we will win.” Nerves were not a factor for Sophie as she beat her opponent handily, losing only one set. Other wins were contributed by freshman Ally Agerland, junior Maggie Berg.

Lindsey Harris and Alexis Pricco once again had a great match in doubles, losing the first set but showing great resilience in winning the next two. The Holy Family girls looked very focused and locked in. With some senior leadership, the ladies were able to improve their record and will begin preparing for their next opponent, Litchfield on Tuesday.

The team hopes to build on their recent success and make another run deep into the postseason. Hopefully more State Tournament hardware is in the near future.
