The Schoolcraft girls’ tennis team is off to a good start this spring. They’re 4-1 in their matches even though the weather hasn’t been very cooperative. At Niles Brandywine, the team lost 2 – 6, but took three separate competitors to three sets but were unsuccessful in winning any of them.
Abby Blodget plays first singles. Grace Deyoung is undefeated at second singles with Paxton Green and Maya Pearce rounding out the singles lineup. Returning players Emily Parker and Kayla Julien anchor the doubles lineup. Annika Varker and Kelsey Feddema are a solid at second doubles. Grey Buchheit and Savannah McDonald play at the three spot, with Hope Spencer, Jaice Parker, and Zosha Kuiper all rotating in at playing number four doubles.
“We’ve had one rainout with Kalamazoo Christian, and the Greater Kalamazoo tournament was called off,” according to Coach Eric McGehee. “Certainly, it has been inconvenient, but the Krum Center has been a tremendous asset for our program. Without it, I don’t know where we would be. We will face stronger opponents ahead on the schedule with the conference tournament at Stowe Stadium and regionals at Leeper Park in South Bend.”
