Tennis, Girls: Varsity defeats Longmeadow HS

Event Details

The Deerfield varsity girls travelled to nearby Longmeadow, MA on Wednesday to play a ten player, no repeat format match. The team pulled up two junior varsity players to fill out the lineup. Thank you to Ally Kell and Anne Brown for stepping up and lending us their services. Tori Waterfall faced off with one of New England’s top players, Iris Gallo. The match was great experience for Tori; the two exchanged some fantastic points. Deerfield swept the other singles points with strong performances from Ashley Manning, Adeliza Grace, and Lisa Chen. First doubles pair, Emma and Sophia, dominated with a 10-0 victory. At second doubles, Alya Abd Aziz and Catalina Llorente took some time to settle in to the match and even fell behind 4-5 at one point. The pair dug in and loosened up in time to come back and win. Aly Kell and Anne Brown lost to a senior doubles team at third, but played hard and learned a lot in their first varsity outing. The team improves to 7-3 with only one regular season match remaining. The squad is back on the courts this Saturday at Choate Rosemary Hall.
