Hey there tennis fans!
Spring Break came to a close and that meant that things were starting to get serious for the Lady Lions as our biggest and most important matches were vastly approaching. In fact, we just had our very first conference match this past week against Santa Clara!
I unfortunately got a little under the weather with a heavy cold/sore throat type deal last week so I was sitting out of practice and taking care of my body, but I knew my team was working hard to be as ready as possible for that first conference match. Santa Clara has always been a tough and competitive team in our conference so we wanted to definitely put on our game faces and best game plans and attitudes forward. On Friday, we flew up to norcal for our match against the Broncos on Saturday. After establishing a pretty solid doubles line-up over the past month, our execution and teamwork looked great out there and we successfully secured the doubles point, which put us in great position to take the match. We won at 2 and 3 and big shout out to Kristine and Reka who pulled out an 8-0 victory at No. 3 dubs.
Santa Clara's singles line up was solid especially their top players but Jessica, Kristine, Miya and Laura put up great battles! Reka and Ellie had great wins at 5 and 6 which gave us an ending result of a close 3-4 total match score! It's tough to walk away with the loss, but I am so proud of all of them and that is a great tight first match to start off our conference matches.
Next week, we turn around to the bay area on Tuesday morning to play USF on their home turf. The match will be on Wednesday morning! Wish us luck and we hope to do LMU proud and come back home with the win!
That's all for now! GO LIONS!
