Sep 17 – Girls JV Tennis

The Lady Dons first road trip was commandeered by Campolindo as the Cougars won a spirited match 7–3. Molly Cronk stepped up to play our first singles match of the year and fought hard before dropping an 8-game pro set 3-8.

At Doubles 1, Maddie MacDonagh and Sam Sweeney provided Acalanes’ first highlight by playing an “up and down and up” match in recording an 8-6 win. Sam and Maddie were up early only to see their lead dissolve before they re-grouped to pull out a victory in a really fine match.

At D-6, Jess Gerson teamed with Maggie Curless to play a terrific match that resulted in an 8-6 Lady Dons win. Both Maggie and Jess dominated the net and covered the court effectively throughout the match. Our final win was in the final match of the day with Niki Palamountain hitting the final winner to secure an 8-5 win with her partner Skyler DeMartini. Niki and Skyler ran down a number of Campo shots that appeared to be winners only to turn them into Lady Don points.

Although we came up short today, we get Campo at our house in October and will look to reverse the result. You should also know that the Campolindo’s Coach Melanie complimented all of you on your sportsmanship and competitiveness.
