Varsity Girls Tennis Scores a Shutout Win
Deerfield’s varsity tennis girls were back on the courts Saturday with visiting Berkshire. The team delivered a well-rounded effort and logged wins at every position. The team’s played a no-repeat format so that ten players from each side competed.
Olivia Waterfall had a hard-earned win at third singles. The first set came down to a tie break which Olivia won 7-3. During the second set, she found her rhythm and began hitting winners to compliment some great first serves. Another singles highlight was a dominant second singles win from Hunter Pulliam, her first singles victory for Deerfield!
The doubles match-ups also went Deerfield’s way. Congratulations to Kiki Brainard, Alex Kelsey, and Linnea Dreslin on their first career wins for Big Green. The weather cooperated and both teams demonstrated great character on a great day of tennis.
The team sets its sights on midweek play with a trip to Simsbury, CT to take on Westminster this Wednesday.
