St. Mary's School vs Henley High School
5 3

St. Mary’s undefeated district record was in great jeopardy after falling behind 3 matches to 1 against a tough Henley team, but clutch performances led to a sweep of the number 3 and 4 matches, giving the Crusaders a 6-0 record in district play. In the number one matches, freshmen, Finley Cox, played her best set of the year and gave notice that she would be a force to be reckoned with for many years, even if she came up short in the match. The number one doubles team of Zoe Alftine and Susanna Schatz have faced tough competition all season, and though they too lost, they seem to be peaking just before the district championship. Alicia Lu continued to improve after her return from Robotic competition, dropping a tough match at number 2 singles. The number 2 doubles team of Leah Sternenberg and Sammi Miller continued their stellar play, remaining undefeated as a duo with an 8-2 victory. Maggie Von Stahl also continued her strong play with an 8-0, remaining undefeated in district play. Eve Von Strahl pulled out a tough 9-7 win in her singles match, and Anais Fang and Jenny Nguyen won in a tie-breaker to preserve their nine match win streak. The clinching match came from TaylorRose Tavares and Meg Wright. After falling behind 3-0, the pair staged a furious comeback to clinch the win for the team. The Crusaders finish their regular season with a home match against Hidden Valley on Friday, before playing in the District Championship next week.
