With the girls’ golf and tennis regular season at end, the postseason is in full effect. Preparation is the key to success in the postseason.
“In practice we would mainly focus on groundstrokes and footwork, so we can be as consistent as we can in matches,” freshman Ellie Geoffroy said.
Geoffroy is a new addition to the team, and as a freshman state qualifier, was a great addition.
“I wanted to play with the good people; in practice and in matches. I needed to get used to the higher level,” Geoffroy said.
The postseason was going well for Geoffroy’s doubles team, but then ran into a private school.
“The postseason went poorly. We got knocked off early by Saint Thomas Aquinas because we had poor season.” Geoffroy said.
Just like that, the tennis season was over with a tough, early loss. With the tennis ending, the golf season is coming to an end as well. The golf team had two girls that went to state; Hailey Barbour and Maura Flahive.
“Hailey and I ended up playing in difficult conditions. The course had multiple puddles scattered around it so if you hit near or in one of those, it was really hard to bounce back,” senior Maura Flahive said.
The girls didn’t have a stellar regular season. Playing in the state tournament meant they had nothing to lose, but a lot to gain as well.
“We entered the tournament with a positive mindset, and tried to just enjoy being on the course. With the competition at state this year, it would be tough to get in the top 20,” Flahive said.
Flahive and Barbour ended up finishing well, considering the competition and conditions they had to play in.
“We ended up finishing in the middle pack, I got 47th out of 87 and Hailey got 57th,” Flahive said.
Both sports played well the whole season and look forward to improving next year.
