Tennis Team Drops Tough Match

At number three singles, Antonia Farny lost in three sets as did Kiersten Potter at number five singles. Brooke Walthall had a close, 7-5, 6-4, loss. The doubles team of Gabrielle Toomy and Rachel Brodsky lost 9-8.

We were right in there,” said Coach Debbie Meadows. “I was so proud of the effort my team put into the matches.”
