Girls’ Tennis Comes Alive

Caleb Primos

The Milford High varsity tennis girls got their first win of the season this past week and then continued the streak by going on to win a second match. The first win for the Lady Bucs came against Seaford and included victories from second and third singles, and first and second doubles. Senior Catie McColley even battled for a three-set match win.

The Milford ladies faced Lake Forest in their second match of the week and pulled off another 4-1 victory. “We are definitely progressing as a team,” said McColley. “We finally got a couple of wins.”

According to McColley, the team’s recent success is due to everyone on the team “learning more and adjusting to their positions.” She added that the biggest improvement has come in her teammates’ ability to play and hopefully this will enable the team to pull off more wins and progress together as a team.

BOYS TENNIS

 

The boys’ tennis team also had a great week, winning two of its three matches to increase its record to 6-2. The six wins equals the combined amount of wins the Milford boys had during the past two seasons.

The Bucs lost their first match of the week against Seaford on Wednesday, but then won the next two matches on Thursday and Saturday against Lake Forest and St. Thomas More. The Lake Forest match included wins from the entire varsity, including senior co-captain Kane Rothermel’s first win of the season. Rothermel won his second match of the season on Saturday against St. Thomas More in straight sets.

In the upcoming week, the Bucs will face Caesar Rodney away on Tuesday and then will compete against Sussex Central on Thursday at the Milford High School tennis courts.
