The game against Hillsdale High was tied 3 to 3 until the last match where Carlmont suffered their first loss.

Coach Amina Halsey knew going into the game that it will be a difficult match up, probably the hardest of the season, and she also expected it to be a close game.

Coach Halsey said, “It is going to be a tough match but they are ready for the challenge.”

The preparation and work the team has been demonstrating prepared them for this match up.

The doubles were played by sophomores Cassidy Sobey and Morgan Watson, sophomore Zoe Wildman and senior Michelle Guan, as well as junior Julia Mirande and sophomore Sydney Cho. They were all victorious; however, the singles played by junior Pareesa Darafshi, senior Cori Sidell, sophomore Mar Bugueno and junior Veronika Dvorakova led to a loss.

Watson won her match with a score of 6-1 and 6-2 in doubles with her partner Sobey. Watson said, “I was pretty confident but still a little nervous because they have improved throughout the past year, and during the course of the match there were some close calls.”

Darafshi did not win her singles match and says, “I got creamed. 6-1 and 6-2 was my final score.”

She then explained the importance of her match and said, “Every match counts and last year Hillsdale had a really talented player who beat us and this year they added two new players who are just as good as her.”

All three singles matches lost their sets and with one match left, the game it was tied neck and neck 3 to 3 with their top player and captain Sidell still competing.

Sidell put up a hard fight against her opponent, but ultimately ended up losing the match, leaving the Scots with a record of 7-1 overall and 5-1 in league.
