Tennis

The Middle School Tennis Team played a Match at Home vs. Glynn Academy Middle School from Brunswick on Tuesday the 18th.  Our Girls won 4 – 3!  We are especially proud of our ladies that work extremely hard to win week after week!

Our Guys fell 1 – 4 but we always appreciate their heartfelt effort.

Winning Highlights:

#1 Singles – Alex Hoffman, #2 Singles Lily Beth Redick, #3 Singles Lexi Polychrones, #3 Singles Joshua Skalla, #1 Doubles Alli DeYoung and Caitlyn Skalla. Congratulations to our winners!

We had a very special doubles match on Tuesday – Emma Lee and Lucy Smith Biemiller played for 2 hours and did not end up with the win, the score was 5 – 8 but the match was one for the books!  The girls gave it everything they had!  It was exciting to witness their Raider determination! Thank you very much to Coach Theresa Portzer, who officiated over the long match!

The Team Party was enjoyed by all on Thursday afternoon and big THANKS to all of the wonderful parents that made that happen!
