The Lady Vikings Tennis team won their season opener on the road against Covington 3-2 with a Varsity Singles sweep.
After Avery Lasecki and Kaitlin Whitford ended their triumphant second sets at #3 and #1 singles, all eyes were on Ellie Easton to seal the deal for the team. Covington’s Emma Taylor, a strong, left handed Junior, kept Easton fighting for the next point. A late second set full of lobbing into the wind and exciting rallies at the net, Easton ended the match with a drop shot to the right alley that Taylor failed to return.

#3 Singles Avery Lasecki 6-1, 6-0
