The girls’ varsity tennis team is off to a remarkable start this year, winning the Somerset County Tournament on Saturday, September 22. In addition to their tournament win, the team holds a winning record. Their goals, according to Coach Marion Weber, “are to finish in the top 3 of the conference, win the county tournament, win sectionals, and make it to the group finals.”

The team has changed considerably since last year, with key seniors graduating and three talented freshmen joining the team. Captains Nicole Kloss (VI) and Allie Matthias (VI) are focused on working with the new team to achieve the goals set by their coach. However, in light of their early achievements, it seems that the team has a good chance of not only achieving their goals but exceeding them.

With much of the season still to be played, the team looks to carry its earlier success into sectionals and the group finals. Above all, Coach Weber is most excited about having “a fun and competitive season.”
