The girls' tennis team has penciled itself into the TA history books once again. For the first time, in school history, the team earned a bid to the State Tennis Tournament! They advanced to the Regional Finals by crushing Fort Defiance, 5-1. Battling for singles victories were Malena Hoover, Carter Young, Valeria Santos and Grace Pierantoni. Sealing the deal, with their doubles finesse, were Carter and Rachel Showalter although Val and Grace were ready to also finalize the match! Regional Finals are today at 1 p.m. here at home.
The girls’ tennis team returned from a two week break from tennis and left off where it started by dismantling Spotswood 5-0 in the quarterfinals of the Regional playoffs. Solid singles’ victories were had by Malena Hoover, Rachel Showalter, Carter Young, Valeria Santos and Grace Pierantoni. This is the first TA team victory in Regional play for over 30 years, if not ever! Next up is Fort Defiance on Wednesday at home for the Regional Semi-Finals to determine a trip to the State tournament.
