Varsity This week the Hornets saw action against Proviso East. Proviso East was only able to furnish a lone singles player at the varsity level, and junior Chase Metcalf made quick work of the match with a 6-0, 6-0 victory. The Hornets spent a lot of time on the practice courts, gearing up for what will be a match heavy next 3 weeks. With some tough competition coming up, the squad looks tough and ready to contend for a conference championship.
Week of August 31st
Varsity This week the Hornets played their first matches of the season against Morton and Addison Trail. On Wednesday against Morton, the Hornets avenged a 3-4 loss from last year, with a 7-0 win. They girls played great up and down the lineup. Veteran members of the team Sam Heinking, Courtney Kaplan, Jada Lunsford, Rayva Verma, and Rachel Sitasz came to play, and the lineup was bolstered by the addition of junior Chase Metcalf and three freshman! (Aditi Ranjan, Rachele Cameli, and Arya Selvaraj). New to the varsity team included juniors Jeanette Krstev and Gabrielle Alcantara who won a heck of a nail biter (squeaking out a 10-8 3rd set tiebreaker win). On Thursday it was back to business against Addison Trail, with a 7-0 Hornet win. In two matches junior Chase Metcalf is yet to drop a single game, and the 1st doubles team of Rachele Cameli and Courtney Kaplan continue to impress atop the doubles lineup. Next week the Hornets take on Leyden and host a Saturday dual against sister school Hinsdale Central. Let’s go South!
