From MSHS Girls Tennis Head Coach, Karl Thomsen:

  • “Today’s meet was very similar to our meet yesterday against Negaunee; lots of close matches.  I was really pleased with our effort today in the close sets and matches.  The girls showed more mental toughness today, stayed positive, didn’t dwell on their mistakes, and the result was some really good tennis.  Cecelia Jacuzzo solidified the tie with Esky, by adjusting her game in set #2 and showing a lot of grit in set #3.  Hats off also to the #3 doubles team of Eliina Brazeau and Nistha Gautham.  As the first set tightened up, they were able to step up and win those key points.  Meets like the last three (Westwood, Negaunee, and Esky) are what we need to grow and prepare for the end of the season tournaments.

Next Up:

  • The MSHS Varsity Girls Tennis Team will be back at home today, 8/31/22, when they host West Iron County for a meet starting at 3:30 p.m.
