Wellington tied Sterling for the team title with 32 points, winning their 2nd straight varsity tournament.
Coach Brian Aufdengarten reports:
Top finisher was Kami Reichenberger at #2 singles who went 4-0 on the day. She beat Winfield 7-0, Chaparral 7-0, Sterling 7-0, and Kingman 7-0. That's a pretty decent day she didn't even give up 1 game, not heard of much even some of the best players in the state don't do that often. Kami is settling down and playing well she is 11-1 in our last 3 tournaments.
#1 Singles Ashlyn Gerten is starting to figure things out also and went 3-1 good for second place. She beat Winfield 7-0, Chaparral 7-0, Sterling 7-3, and eventually lost to last years 321A's 4th place finisher 3-7. Ashlyn's match with the Pearce girl was really good many deuce games, she played well.
#1 Doubles today was Rylee Rusk and Calli Hatfield and they went 3-1 also. They beat Winfield 7-1, Chaparral 7-1, and Kingman 7-0. They lost their only match to Sterling who is very good and now 11-0 on the season. We lost in a tiebreak after being down 2-5. i loved our comeback to get it to the tiebreak, best tennis I've seen us play this year. That team has the 3rd place finisher mixed with an 8th place finisher, they are pretty good.
At #2 doubles Wellington had two entries and both of them medalled. Olivia Brand and Crystal Ramirez finished 2nd overall going 3-1, and Airalyn Frame with Jordyn Brown went 2-2 good for 3rd place. Both teams beat Winfield and Chaparral, and both lost to Sterling. In the end the two teams had to play each other with Brand and Ramirez winning a close match 7-5 over their teammates. Both teams battled hard, I think I even heard Frame and Brown let their teammates know they scored more games on Sterling, in a friendly ending to the Wellington vs. Wellington match.
JV is at Winfield on Tuesday, Varsity at Andover on Thursday.
