Thursday September 6th was Wasatch Girls Tennis final home match for 2018. Earlier we featured our senior girls: Anna Snow, Afton Overton & Emma Berg. Each of these young ladies has been on the Tennis Team for four years. They showed us on senior day an accumulation of experience and knowledge of their tennis skills to help Wasatch win all varsity matches. Special thanks to these young ladies for setting an example not only as team captains but leaders for our team. Results were as follows:
#1 Singles Alysha Damron won 6/0 & 6/1. Alysha dominated this match from start to finish. With one more match left Alysha will go into region playoffs undefeated and will be #1 seed.
#2 Singles Phelan O’Keefe won 6/3 & 6/1. Phelan will also go into region playoffs undefeated and as a #1 seed also. As a freshman she has been delightful and a very pleasant surprise.
#3 Singles Cassie Henderson won also 6/3 & 6/1. Cassie will also go into region playoffs undefeated and as #1 seed. This is Cassie’s first year playing singles.
#1 Doubles Anna Snow and Afton Overton. Won 7/6 & 7/6. These young ladies had their hands full. Maple Mountain always shows up with very good doubles teams and this year was no different. Anna & Afton came thru with a close tie breaker in the first set. The second set Maple Mountain had us down a break but these young ladies returned service very well and started to put away the volleys and broke back forcing another tie breaker wherein Wasatch pulled it out again.
#2 Doubles Emma Berg and Rebecca McGregor won 6/2 & 6/1. Emma and Becca have turned out to be an excellent doubles team. They talk a lot and cover each other very well. Emma & Rebecca will go thru region playoffs also undefeated and go in as #1 seed.
It is always a worry for coaches to play a match after a holiday because you have three days without a practice. This year was not the case. In fact, Wasatch lost one match including all the JV. Our girls did a great job focusing on this match. Results:
#1 Singles Alysha Damron won 6/0 & 6/0
#2 Singles Phelan O’Keefe won 6/0 & 6/1
#3 Singles Cassie Henderson son 6/0 & 6/0
#1 Doubles Anna Snow & Afton Overton lost 4/6 & 5/7
#2 Doubles Emma Berg & Rebecca McGregor won 6/1 & 6/3
