Harwood 6,  BFA St. Albans 1

On Monday, May 10, the Harwood girls’ varsity tennis team crushed BFA St. Albans at the Collins Perley Sports Complex. The Highlanders won 6-1, only losing one singles match.

“The HUHS girls’ varsity team exhibited talent and flexibility on the courts this past Monday, quickly adjusting to the indoor venue from a season of outdoor practices and competitions,” said coach Jo Lynn Ostler. “While the courts were faster and a bit slick, all team players moved gracefully to adjust their game.”

“Further, our singles players held to consistency during play and doubles rendered the same; along with tenacity,” said Ostler.

“They played well,” said coach Seth Mikle. “Each one of those matches could have gone the other way. The team is young and they don’t have a lot of match experience, but they are gonna get better with each outing. They are still learning how to close out a matches.”
