The Varsity Spartan Tennis girls finished the season third at Sectionals, with their bid for a historic back-to-back Team State appearance falling short by just one match. The ladies had a rollercoaster ride of a season with multiple lineup changes as the team welcomed five freshmen and six returning players. They clinched tough wins and experienced close losses, earning an 8-1 Conference and 10-3 Invite record. As the season came to a close with indoor tournaments at Nielsen, ten Varsity players took the third-place title for Conference on October 3. The next Monday, nine of those players returned to Nielsen for the first day of Sectionals while the lineup switched, hosting last year’s top four singles players. The 3 and 4 Singles, Nikita Remesh and Jessica Jiang, won the Sectional Championship for the second consecutive year.
The JVA and JVB girls also had great seasons full of laughter and fun. JVA Conference took place on September 28, with seven seniors, including first-year players, competing in their last tournament of Spartan tennis.
The JVA and Varsity teams concluded the season with a banquet at Dahmen’s. They celebrated their accomplishments and teamwork and toasted to another year of hard work, achievements, and enjoyment.
