The girls varsity tennis team finished second with nine points this past weekend; there were huge contributions from 3 singles, junior Andrea Wang, and sophomore Emily Johnson at 4 singles. Each won both of their matches, totaling four points for the team; however, the other five came from the doubles flights. 1 through 5 doubles swept St. Francis, but none of them could compete with the strong doubles lineup of Troy.

The five doubles flights let up just two games combined against St. Francis. 1 doubles, consisting of seniors Lyndsay Werkema and Katie McClure, 3 doubles, consisting of junior Jenny Baer and senior Myah Leavenworth, and sophomores Olivia Hooper and Mina Siebert at 4 doubles, all won 6-0, 6-0, which is an impressive feat against any team.

While Emily and Andrea were the only singles players to win, freshman Libby Moog at 1 singles put up a tough fight against Troy; she lost 6-4, 6-3.

The Rangers singles players have played well most of the season, along with the doubles flights; however, they have both yet to click at the same time. There have been glimpses of this combined success against Cedar Springs and in a few other matches, but the results have not shown consistently.

The Rangers need both to come together and to start playing well at the same time as conferences and regionals creep closer. For now, though, they look to play well against Greenville at home on Tuesday and especially on Wednesday at state contender East Grand Rapids.
