SW Cowgirls sweep the Lady Bison 9-0 in non-conference tennis action
Returning to seasonal norms in temperature and sunshine, the SW Cowgirls readied themselves in anticipation of hosting the Lady Bison of HPC after the rain out at HPC last week.
The Cowgirls had all but Annie Vo in their line up. Silly academics and Early College. We will hear from her in future postings.
Unsure of the strengths of the Lady Bison, the Cowgirls took to the courts at full swing.
And did they power through.
The short of it all. Though the Lady Bison had competent games, they were just outmatched by the strength and depth of the Cowgirls. To their credit, they had some impressive games down the line, but the Cowgirls were there to answer almost every shot taken.
In Singles, the Lady Bison only managed two games in total against the Cowgirls.
Having secured the match, I dropped out Dubs #1, pushing up Meghan Whalen and Gretchen Cross back to their old position last year. Brain farting early in the match, they never were behind, finishing their opponents off with the next four games against HPC’s #1 & 3 seeds. #1 court final score, 8-4
Hopefully giving Nicole Sopala and Tran Nguyen a better challenge, Coach put them in the #2 dubs spot. Apparently they were up to it. They dropped but one game in their 8-1 victory.
This gave opportunity to some of the mid seeds to show their stuff in varsity action. Maggie Mugi (Early College) and Bea Calwitan. No Problem here! This duo blitzed their opponents 8-1 as well.
Cowgirls improve to 2-0 in non-conference play.
