Two Non-Conference Matches This Week For Girls Tennis

Posted on: September 5, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE:  Junior Amanda Reinhart extended her win streak with another two wins last week, and Milford was thisclose to upsetting Anderson for the team’s first win of the season.  The Eagles, who are starting to gain momentum and confidence, will have a chance to grab that first win this week as they take on Mason B and Wyoming in the coming week.

 

A LOOK BACK:  Milford hosted Division II’s top-ranked Seven Hills High School last week (Aug. 29), and though the Eagles gave the Stingers a challenge, Seven Hills came away with the win, 4-1.  Amanda Reinhart won 6-1, 6-1 over Seven Hills' L. Sagger at first singles, while the rest of the squad was much improved playing in hot and humid conditions.  Final results:  Reinhart (M) d. Sagger (S) 6-1, 6-1; Tehrani (S) d. Faler (M) 6-1, 6-2; Alper (S) d. Breuer (M) 6-0, 6-1; Blatt-Choo (S) d. LaFrance-Spencer (M) 6-2, 6-1; Duncan-Parameswaran (S) d. Thomas-Neil (M) 6-1, 6-1.

Looking for their first victory of the season, Milford made a visit to take on the ECC’s Anderson.  In a very close contest Milford lost, 3-2.  Amanda Reinhart and Mallory Faler collected wins for the Eagles:  Reinhart d. Kaylor 6-0, 6-0; and Faler d. Fender 6-1, 6-1.  Leah Breuer took the first set over Anderson’s Conway 3-6, but Conway came back to win following two sets, 6-2, 6-1.  In doubles, LaFrance-Spencer fell to Whitehead-Moulas 6-1, 6-0; and Stump/Stith of Anderson d. Thomas-Neil 6-2, 6-2.

 

THE WEEK AHEAD:  Nearly halfway through the season, the Eagles have another two weeks with a fairly light schedule before tournament action begins.  The Lady Eagles are on the road this week, with a trip to face Mason B as well as an away match with Wyoming High School, ranked #9 in Division II. 

  • Tuesday, 9/6:                    Milford @ Mason B, Mason High School, 4:00 pm
  • Thursday, 9/8:                   Milford @ Wyoming, Wyoming Country Club, 4:00 pm
