Although we lost our match 6 to 1, the MacDuffie girls played hard. Many of their games were decided after numerous rounds of deuce. With great teamwork and strong net shots our #2 doubles team Basak Ozgur and Kacey Deecher provided us with our one win, beating their opponent 8-2 on Saturday. We are looking forward to our next match with Marianapolis on Monday.

MacDuffie- 2, Stoneleigh Burnham- 5

The girl’s varsity team were eager to get their first match of the season started yesterday. Congratulations to Natalie Papas who contributed to the two MacDuffie wins. Natalie played #4 singles winning her match 6-1, 6-3 using some smart singles strategy. She then teamed up with Maju Azevedo to play #3 doubles, the girls easily won their match 6-0, 6-0. Many of the matches were close and the girls fought hard but ultimately fell to Stoneleigh Burnham. This is just the start of the season and the girls are looking forward to getting back out on the courts and winning the next one!
