This tennis season for South is not filled with wild expectation, but certainly filled with expectations. With seniors Lorena Jevnikar, Andreanna Zaverl, and Gigi Crockett-Tomasio, the team bursts with experience and leadership.
However, the opening match pitted our tennis mavens against Mayfield, who are not only the favorites to win the WRC, but stocked with three dynamite singles players. The scores below do not reflect the fight and grit our girls showed, but the high level of tennis certainly bodes well for the season.
First doubles marked the South’s bright spot as Zaverl and her partner Irene Rozenberg handled their opponents efficiently with pinpoint crosscourts and volley winners. Zaverl and Rozenberg embark on their journey to be the top rated doubles team in the WRC, so we shall see…
