Last week was difficult for the varsity tennis team.
Apparently even teen-agers get tired if you play five meets in nine days, said Derrick Abromeit, coach. The girls just seemed to run out of steam in their matches, but they played tough and competed throughout.
Monday we made up a quad from the beginning of the season (four weeks ago) with three tough Sunflower league teams, Olathe East, Olathe Northwest and Mill Valley. Blazers ended up losing to all three teams.
We were without Jenna Mahoney who was resting a tender hamstring, Abromeit said. There were some bright spots however. Maycee Beasley filled in nicely at #1 singles, winning one and losing two hard-fought matches. The star of the team was sophomore Lauren Mulwa at #3 singles. She won two matches with scores of 8-6 and lost one match 8-5.
Tuesday we finished our season with a dual against Spring Hill. All three doubles were close, 8-6. Unfortunately Blazers were on the short end in two of them. /singles play was frustrating. The Blazers lost 4 of 6.
Jenna and Kelsey Moroles-Macedo teamed up in a doubles win, and then both girls won in singles.
