Girls’ tennis team playing well

September 14, 2006

The Baldwin High School girls' tennis teams are off to a good start.

On Sept. 5, the varsity played at Spring Hill in a quad. Baldwin came in second behind De Soto with seven wins and five losses.

In singles, Mary Clippinger and Holly Ralston both got second place in their separate divisions. Both doubles teams, Emily Krysztof with April Robbs (No. 1 doubles) and Sarah Nichols with Alyssa Peterson (No. 2 doubles), also came in second with two wins and one loss each.

"We definitely need to get ourselves better prepared for the beginning matches," coach Ginny Honomichl said. "It seems that we have so much to work on in so little time."

The varsity Bulldogs were scheduled to compete at the Marysville Invitational on Saturday, but the tournament was cancelled due to rain. They played at the Baldwin Invitational Wednesday, but the results were unavailable at press time.

The junior varsity won its dual with Mill Valley on Sept. 5 with nine wins and three losses. All four doubles teams won their matches and Brianna Krysztof, Marianne Schroer, Aubrey Black, Regan Smith, and Katlyn Roberts all won their singles matches.

"This was a successful dual for us, " Honomichl said. "However, that doesn't mean we don't have plenty to work on. Getting better each time out is our goal."

Schroer agreed.

"Everyone did very well for it being a lot of the girls' first time playing," Schroer said. "I was impressed with the results."
