High School Tennis - match 8

Our team played Hanover today. Hanover won the state championship last year and have a very strong team.  We got killed.  I think in total Hanover won 72 games today, Kearsarge won less than 20!
The girls played better than at the start of the season, but I think the back to back to back matches are tiring them out.  Not only is there no time to review and instruct, but there is no down time either, for them to consider their game, their efforts etc.
We have only 5 matches remaining, 3 next week (weather permitting).

Today we went to play our match at the Dartmouth courts.  The facility is gorgeous.  The kids were in for a treat - no cracked courts, no wind, rain, sun or bugs to contend with.  All 6 singles matches went on at once.  It was a nice change of pace from our usual 5 hour matches....
We went out for pizza as a team afterwards, had a bunch of laughs and a good time.  They are a great group of kids and I wish them the best with their futures.
