From MSHS Girls Tennis Head Coach, Karl Thomsen:

  • “After almost two weeks of no matches (weather) it was great to get back after it. I was really happy with how our #3 doubles team of Laura Barsch and Aubree Blackburn applied what we have been working on in practice. Lucy Stern had a little rust early on, but battled her way through it to have a nice victory over a tough opponent. Maya Griffin and Sam Korpi had a thrilling match at #3 singles. After the girls split the first two sets, we opted for a third set super tiebreak in fear of running into rain and darkness. Sam eventually prevailed 11 – 9 in the tiebreak. I’m hoping these two get a chance to meet during tournament time.

Next Up:

  • The MSHS Girls Tennis team will be back in action tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/13/23), when they travel to Westwood for a dual meet starting at 4:00 p.m.
