Twelve Tigers traveled to Jackson for our first entry into the Jackson Invitational Tennis Tournament the weekend of March 28-30. Mia, Sonali, Neha, Harper, Aasha, Julia, Erica, Romy, Sarah Jacobs, Ella, Natalie and Lauren showed west Tennessee that USN came to play! Impending rain forced the tournament to be completed in one day. Our team showed resilience and competitive spirit to play all of the matches required of them. Every girl won at least two matches, with Aasha, Ella, Romy and Erica each coming away with a medal for winning their singles flights and Romy and Erica teamed up to capture the doubles medal. Lauren, Sarah Jacobs, Natalie and Julia all made it to the finals of their singles flights--just coming up short in the final match. The last match finished at 9:00 pm and a trip to Sonic topped off a long day of matches!
Six senior players were recognized for their contributions to the team on Monday, April 1. Dedication, attitude, work ethic and competitiveness were themes as a large crowd gathered at River Campus to applaud the girls who have committed their time and energy to our team. Mia Pretorius, Sonali Dasari, Rosalyn Baxter and Georgia King began their USN tennis careers in the 6th grade playing for our MS Tennis Team. Grace Rieneits joined the team as a sophomore and Caroline Sigmund has stepped in to play in her final year at USN. We love our seniors! Thanks for your leadership and competitive spirit.
On Saturday, May 11, our JV Tennis Team will travel to Ensworth High School for a season ending JV Tournament. Currey Ingram, CPA, USN, FRA, LA, and BGA are among the schools that will compete in the second annual JV Tournament.
Mark you calendars! All JV players will be entered and compete individually and as a team.
