Tennis Team Loses to HRA
The Varsity Girls Tennis Team dropped its match Tuesday to a powerhouse Hampton Roads Academy squad.
But the loss showcased a promising young player for the Oaks. After all but one of the matches had been completed, eighth grader Aja Shelton, playing number one on the varsity, remained on the court, trading blistering groundstrokes with HRA’s Maureen Slattery, a nationally-ranked senior.
“Though Aja lost, one couldn’t help thinking what promise lies ahead for this Oak, ” said Coach Debbie Meadows. “She has tremendous potential.”
