"Today's match presented some tricky conditions with the combination of wind and heat for the first time this year," said Cameron Scott, Heights coach. "I was pleased to see our girls think through those elements and figure out what adjustments needed to be made. I continue to love how our doubles teams keep becoming more and more aggressive by the day. And I loved to see the way Kennedy Hunter bounced back and took control of her match early; she's a far different player than she was a year ago."
The junior varsity team came away with an 8-1 victory in some windy conditions. Singles wins came from Abby Weber, Hailey VanOeveren, Maddie Nickel, and Cortney Martin and doubles wins came from Katy Beery/Addi Gordon, Sofia Scalvini/Brooke Sears, Haley Griffard/Kate Biggs, and Gwendolyn Kelley/Caitlin Hartwick.
