The girls varsity tennis team is excited to continue their matches on Saturday despite the oncoming rain.

On Friday, October 6 and Saturday, October 7, the Antioch varsity girls tennis team played in their conference matches hosted by Grayslake Central. Their were many teams in attendance but the lady Sequoits were ready to play despite the incoming rain.

“I am ready to give it my best shot so that I can hopefully place at the end of the day,” junior Emily Gardner said.

By the end of all the matches, senior Kelsey Neville, playing in first singles position, placed third out of all the first singles players. Sophomore Sierra Ward, who was playing second singles, placed third as well. The rest of the team ended up short in their matches, giving the team five fourth place medals to add to their two third place medals.

“It was a long few days in the rain but I am still proud that I managed to do well in these conditions,” Gardner said.

Even after the team had to go home early on Friday because of the rain, they came out on Saturday and played as if there was no delay the day before. Come support the girls varsity tennis team at their next invitational at Lakes on Tuesday October 10.
