Oct 16 – JV Girls Tennis – Acalanes 3 – Dublin 3

The JV Lady Dons earned a split with Dublin High Thursday afternoon 3-3. This is a distinct improvement over our first match with the Lady Gaels, which was a 1-6 loss. Allie Figueredo and Samantha Bell continued their winning ways of late playing at D-2. Playing through some questionable line calls early in the match, Sam and Allie maintained their poise for an 8-3 victory. Claire Terentieff and Alex Awwad at D-4 played really well as a team in winning 8-2. Claire handled a number of balls at the net while Alex effectively covered the backcourt. Playing as a last minute fill-in, Melanie Tymm teamed with Alexia LUCEY at D-5 and powered their way to an 8-2 win. Melanie played a number of winning volleys and Alexia served effectively throughout the set.

It was a good effort by all of our lines. We had to contend with a strong wind and for our later lines, failing light. Good effort by all today.
