Girls’ tennis falls slightly behind

Reem Nadeem, Staff Writer

With six wins and four losses, the varsity girls’ tennis team wrapped up their season April 27 at 3:30 p.m. The last game against Herndon High school was a success, yielding a score of 7-2.

Senior team member Miriam Eackloff said the Support the Troops Carnival, which took place the same day, brought many Ram fans to watch the game, and the team’s senior night.

It was supposed to be held the night before on April 26; however, inclement weather postponed the event to the next day.

“Senior Night was a success; we played Herndon and won,” Eackloff said. “I don’t recall the exact score but we did pretty well. The juniors did a lot for us that day and night.”

The atmosphere of triumph was also tinged with some emotion for the seniors on the team, as they said goodbye to their high school sport.

Head coach Jeff Jones  also had to say goodbye to the first group of seniors he has known for all four years, since he began coaching.

Eackloff said, “The seniors this year are Coach Jones’ first four year seniors on the team to graduate since he’s been coaching so it’s kind of sad.”
