Benet Academy senior Felicity Kolb runs to another court to return a difficult shot to secure our Play of the Week! Presented by Trunnell Insurance.
We head to the tennis courts for this Play of the Week where Benet Academy faced Naperville Central and senior Redwing Felicity Kolb shows you why you can never give up on the play. Off her serve, the return just barely bounces inbounds, creating a highly difficult chance to reach the ball, but Kolb somehow stays with the play tracking it down in the other court. Eventually it leads to a backhand shot by her teammate Kaitlyn Lee securing the point and look at Lee’s face. She can’t believe what just happened. Just amazing hustle by Kolb.
Kolb’s previous match
Benet Academy girls tennis takes on Naperville Central in a non-conference matchup where the Redwings defeat the Redhawks in a rout.
The girls tennis season marches on with a non-conference matchup between Benet Academy and Naperville Central. We begin with number one doubles as Giana Xiao and Mira Patel from Naperville Central welcome Redwings Kaitlyn Lee and Felicity Kolb.
Early on in the first set, the Redhawks get a boost of confidence as Xiao’s serve forces a shot from Kolb into the net. Point to Central.
We get all four players involved in this volley. Central in the near court with Benet in the far court. Eventually Kaitlyn Lee drops a quick return that lands near the back line. Patel can’t get enough on her backhand to get over the net. BA takes the first set 6-1.
Kolb serving now in set two. A nice return from Xiao forces Kolb to run onto the court next to her just to get to the ball. Look how much ground the senior covers to make the return and get back in time. Eventually Lee drops a backhand shot in for the point. Great hustle from Kolb who gets some props from her teammate. Benet wins in straight sets 6-1, 6-2.
