On Wednesday, Sept. 20, the Antioch Community High School girls tennis team took on Grant Community High School. Going into the match with a conference record of 2-2, the girls knew they had their work cut out for them. With 11 girls on the team, the matches consisted of three singles and four doubles. Going into the game, knowing that GCHS defeated a team that ACHS lost to previously was hard for the team to swallow. However, the girls did not back down from the challenge. 

“I think it was kind of good knowing that because it told us that we had to dial in and play our hardest,” senior Nicole Kutcher said. “We really had to focus on winning the match so that it would put us in a good position for conference.” 

The girls varsity team walked away from the match with a 4-3 win, putting them in a good spot for the rest of their season. Whether playing singles or doubles, the competition all around was challenging. Throughout all the heat, the girls were very supportive of each other, cheering teammates on and not letting anyone give up.

Senior Faith Correa, a doubles player,  knows that without the support and trust of her teammates, the team wouldn’t be able to succeed like they have been.

“We had a lot of good communication throughout the game,” Correa said. “We were very supportive of each other and had some great hits and points.” 

Getting ahead in conference and reaching closer to sectionals and state, the girls need to lock in now more than ever. You can cheer on the variety tennis team at any of their remaining upcoming matches.
