Season Recap: Girls JV Tennis

By Ellie Nelson

The team celebrated one last hurrah together at the tennis banquet 
Notorious for being one of the most fun sports teams to participate on at DHS, this season the Girls JV Tennis team proved that they are so much more than pasta dinners and fun practices. Over the past few years, the Girls Tennis program at DHS has grown extremely successful. The varsity team has been ranked as the number one seed the past two years and had exemplary performance in both postseasons despite disappointing forfeits due to issues with CIAC regulations. While many people don’t consider the JV girls when they think about the rigor of the Girls Tennis program, the team had an excellent season this year and we can all expect big things for the varsity next year as some of the JV roster steps up to the big leagues.

“We had a really great season overall. Warde and Staples were our biggest competition but we were still able to tie them which was a huge accomplishment from us. Even though we do like to have fun and enjoy ourselves every once in awhile, this season the girls really stepped up and played really competitively this year. Every practice we would play games which really sharpened our skills for matches. Annabelle Mueller and Abby Stravato were both stud players on the team and I’m really looking forward to seeing even more success for the JVT girls next year” said junior captain Grace Wakim.
