Amid the confusion and uncertainty that has consumed high school sports, the Pingry girls’ tennis team is unfazed. With a perfect record of 10-0-0, the team is cruising through its matches, looking to cling on for an undefeated season.
Leading the team is captain Caeley Feeney (VI), who is staying positive despite the compromises the team has had to make. Naturally, news of the team’s limited 12-match season disappointed the team, particularly with the cancellation of many larger tournaments including Counties or Preps. “I feel like our team is so strong this year and we could have gone really far,” Feeney said. Nonetheless, she and the team are grateful for their chance to play at all and are making the best of their remaining practices.
If anything, “quarantine and remote learning has made me appreciate the season so much more. I will not take any matches for granted,” Feeney promised. As the team approaches the latter half of its matches, Pingry girls’ tennis is looking ahead to a promising second half of their season.
