Staples Girls Tennis suffered a hard fought loss to Darien 3-4 yesterday in windy, cold conditions. The team held line 3 singles after a marathon match by Karenna Birns but lost on singles lines 1,2, and 4. Victories at line 1 and 2 doubles made for a down to the last match outcome on line 3 doubles. Unfortunately, it didn’t go the Wreckers way. It’s early in the season and the team will regroup and hope for a chance to play the Blue Wave again in post-season play.
Staples Girls Tennis defeated Wilton 6-1, bringing their record to 4-0. A couple of tough three set matches with Line 1 Doubles emerging victorious and Line 1 Singles a hard fought loss. The team is set to face Danbury (home) and Darien (away) this week.
