FHC Girls Varsity Tennis Dominates the Northview Wildcats


From the moment the first match’s serve was put into play, the Rangers unleashed on the wildcats, instilling even more confidence for their much anticipated season.

FHC girls varsity tennis defeated the Northview Wildcats 8-0 on Monday afternoon at FHC’s home courts. The opening duo, seniors Alexis Bonner and Molly Wiener, had the first chance at setting the stage for the lady Rangers. They did not disappoint.

It was two time state champion Alexis Bonner who tossed the ball up and over for the pairing, and the competition between the two duos was downhill from there.

Alexis and Molly displayed strong defense, reacting and talking well with each other to rally the ball over the net. They also found no trouble in scoring. Both senior girls sport a powerful serve that caused a lot of problems for the Wildcat ladies.

The girls held momentum through all of the competition, only falling once to Northview in one game that created little confidence for their adversaries. The senior duo won the match in two straight sets, prompting the rest of the girls to do their thing and finish out the day without a single loss all around.

For Alexis Bonner, this season’s expectations are high. She is eager to make her last go as a senior really count, and she’s having a blast while at it.

“This group of girls is my favorite one yet,” Alexis said. “My expectations are to win conference, regionals, and states.”

Her goals were simply stated, but she gave some valuable advice to the younger girls coming up in the program who may someday want to make a championship run.

“Practice as hard as you can with every chance you get,” Alexis said. “Use every opportunity that you have and capitalize on what you see in front of you. Always work hard and never let your head down.”

Senior Molly Wiener was also very satisfied with the result, and is eager to finish out the rest of the season with a championship run.

“Alexis and I communicated really well today at the net,” Molly said. “We’re really enjoying this year’s season, and we want more than anything for us to make a run to states and win it all.”
