Oct 14 – JV Girls Tennis – DV 5 – Acalanes 1

The JV Lady Dons dropped a really competitive match today to a fine Dougherty Valley team 5-1. As they did in our first meeting with Dougherty Valley, Maddie Guzaitis and Kelianne Witt provided the Acalanes “1” winning 8-7 in a tie breaker at D-2. Meena Neelakaadan and Hannah Snyder rallied from 4-7 down to lose in a tie breaker 7-8 at D-5. Samantha Bell and Allie Figueredo played very well together against tough opponents at D-3 and after losing a close match 5-8, still had enough energy to go back out to practice together. All of the coaches, DV and AHS, appreciated Skyler DeMartini and Maggie Curless doubling back to play a second set.

The Lady Dons are on the road Thursday at Dublin High.
