Girls Tennis Hopes for Mountain League Title with a 4-3 record

With the season over halfway done, the girls tennis team has a strong 4-3 winning record.

“We are definitely a lot more competitive and you can definitely see the improvements,” said sophomore player Lindsey Walk.

Stand-out girls this season include Bellwood senior Tina Hollen, senior Grace Gensimore, and sophomore Winnie Grot.

“Last year, I was the only returning player and this year over half the team was returning. We came back with more experience and ended up actually being co-champions of the Mountain League,” said Hollen.

We are definitely a lot more competitive and you can definitely see the improvements.”

Compared to last year, the number of girls in tennis has grown from 13 to 20. Since only one senior graduated, many girls are returning and are continuing to improve on their hard work from last year.

“The team last year improved so much from the beginning of the season to the end of the season, but it didn’t show on our record. This year they just picked up where they left off and they just keep continuing to improve each and every match,” said 5 year tennis coach, Randy Irvin.

“All the girls have been improving so much [so far this season],” said Irvin.

The tennis team hopes to win the Mountain League. If the girls can win the match against Huntingdon on Tuesday, September 26th, then the girls will be co-champions of the Mountain League.
