Sequoits warming up before their next match.

The girls tennis team took on their crosstown rivals, the Lakes Eagles, on Tuesday, September 19. Both varsity and JV found themselves just a few points away from a victory. The ladies had prepared just a little extra for last night’s matches. Varsity finished 2-5 overall while JV also fell short from a victory with a final score of 3-4. Despite the loss, the girls are still proud of their effort and overall performance.

“We just have to be more positive even if we have hit a shot out or a double,” junior Megan Lawrence said. “Positive attitudes will get us further, negativity gets you nowhere.”

Lawrence and Aubryn Corey, both juniors, fought hard through their match having to go into a third set against their opponents. Also, juniors Starlin Bognar and Anna Baker found themselves in a match which ended in a tie. Although they suffered a loss, the girls are becoming better players.

“I worked hard at practice these past few days,” Baker said. “Making better judgements on shots and where I hit them.”

The Sequoits prepare for their next match this Saturday, September 23, which is an invite hosted at home. As they go into these matches, they plan to work on having positive attitudes and adjusting their hits which will only make them more successful.
