Tennis, Girls: Junior Varsity defeats Suffield

Event Details

The Big Green brought down the Suffield Tigers 7-0 on a cold Wednesday afternoon. With Maddie Chai filling in a vacancy on the varsity team, Helena Tebeau led the charge against Suffield’s #1 and everyone else stepped up to contribute to the shutout. Tebeau, Ally Edwards, Claire Zhang, and Soo Oh all handily defeated Suffield’s singles players, with no more than 3 games going to the Tigers. Edwards and Zhang then won in exhibition matches against members of Suffield’s varsity team. On the doubles side, Tess Mannix and Whitney Vogt got their second victory of the season. Sasha Hinckley and Julia Bewkes, reunited after the 2015-2016 season in which they did not lose a single match as a doubles pair, took down their opponents in a short pro set. Finally, Acy Cai and Ally Kell found their doubles mojo and gave Deerfield its 7th point in a decisive victory. The team looks forward to facing off against Williston this Saturday at home.
