Girls Varsity Tennis
The Girls were not as fortunate as the Boys, being swept by an impressive Lady Marauders club.
Quotes from Coach Marsh:
"The Women's score does not reflect how hard they fought, and how proud I am of their Warrior spirit. We have 16 women on the team and there is tons of potential and talent. Cricket Daniel and Abby Cook bring great senior leadership and hit the ball very well today. I was impressed by the play of Brett Heath, who played a wonderful singles match. Also, Abby Lee and Anna Stencel made their Brookwood Tennis debut and played well. We are fortunate to have Danyelle Copeland as an assistant coach. She possess the skills to help these teams grow."
