After a narrow victory against St Francis on Wednesday, the Metea Valley Mustangs visit Neuqua Valley girls tennis. The Wildcats are fresh off a 6-1 victory over Naperville Central on Tuesday.
The first singles match features Meera Baid for Metea and Emily Chiou for Neuqua. And it’s Baid who shows off a nice forehand as she takes a point in the first set.
Little later on, she shows the backhand as well. Baid wins the match in two sets.
Sofia Ramos and Abby Allen are forming a strong number 1 doubles pairing for the Wildcats. Ramos slips this shot between two Mustangs for the point.
Match point and Mayling Alonso is unable to return the serve, Neuqua takes it with a pair of 6-0 sets.
Wildcats Hannah Kesterberg and Emily Piao didn’t need a third set either. Kesterberg serves but it’s mishandled by Varsha Murall. After a long rally, the Mustangs’ return hits the net. Neuqua wins at #2 doubles too.
In the #3 singles match, Olivia Li is in control. Li’s backhand is too much for Alisha Arya to return, Li wins in 2 sets.
