Girl’s Varsity Tennis rounded out its season with a 5-0 win against Gann Academy yesterday, remaining undefeated and clinching the Independent Girls Conference title.
Both are a first in the team’s history.
“I could not be more proud of the team and their well deserved IGC championship and undefeated season. It has been an absolute pleasure coaching these exceptional athletes,” said Head Coach Jennifer Miller.
Caroline Champa ’20 and Marianne Alagos ’22 won their singles match 8-0, while Donna Colombo ’19 and Co-Captain Monica Morales ’18 finished their final doubles match 8-1.
At number two doubles, Michelle Levinger ’19 and Elizabeth Foley ’20 won 8-0.
Michelle Levinger ’19 attributed much of the team’s success to Miller.
“Last year, we had a strong season, but this year, the combination of strong returning group of players and an amazing new coach helped us win a championship,” Levinger said.
New to the team, Camille Cherney ’20 reflected on the welcoming and cooperative atmosphere.
“We had great team spirit and supported each other during every match. I am thrilled to bring a tennis trophy to the gym,” Cherney said.
Already looking forward to next season, Foley said, “I think our hard work really paid off, as our season turned out better than any of us expected. It’s great to be undefeated, and I think that this championship win pushes us to challenge ourselves to try and win again next year.”
Yesterday, varsity girls lacrosse and varsity baseball also clinched league titles.
