Girls Tennis Tops St. Gertrude

DSC_1223The Varsity Girls Tennis team defeated St. Gertrude 6-3 at their Homecoming match on Saturday.

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon and the girls from both teams were decked out in their uniforms plus a bit of pink to honor Breast Cancer Awareness. Joining them for warm-ups on the court were Emma McMonagle in grade 3, Angelina Lancey in grade 4, and Solana Wesley in grade 5.

In doubles, the girls won only one match out of the three. Brooke Walthall and Carson McMonagle had a huge comeback at #3 doubles, winning 9-7 after being down 4-7. In singles the girls came storming back and won 5 out of 6 singles matches to win the match. “It took a tremendous team effort to pull out the win,” said Coach Debbie Meadows.

Winning in singles were: Rachel Brodsky at #2 singles (6-4, 7-5); Antonia Farny at #3 singles (6-3,6-0); Brooke Walthall at #4 singles (6-2,6-3); Kiersten Potter at #5 singles (6-4,2-6,10-5); Carson McMonagle at #6 singles (6-2,6-3)

Late Goal Carries Boys

DSC_1218For the Oaks’ boys soccer team, the defense Wednesday was downright offensive.
Defender Chris Beck scored the winner off a pass from Michael Ortiz with a couple of minutes left in the match to defeat Peninsula Catholic, 2-1.

Only a few minutes into the contest, defender Chandler Gillikin scored for Collegiate.

So the win began and ended with a case for the defense.

The team is 5-6 on the season.
