Girls Tennis Sweeps Landmark

March 30th, 2011

Yesterday was a great day for Mercy Tennis as they took on region rival Landmark at South Fulton Tennis Center.  The girls played clean, solid tennis and won all five matches! Congratulations to Brandi  Nelson, Tayler Murray, Jordan Hameen and the doubles teams of Yates/Nagaj and Jones/Bui.

Though the boys team lost to Landmark 2-3, there were some exciting matches. Congratulations to Lake McGuffie on his great win in the #2 singles spot, 8-7.  The match went back and forth with some competitive rallies.  Great net play helped Lake take the match after winning the tiebreak 8-6. 

The #2 doubles team of Charlie Faber and Demetrious Dabadee was down early in their match 2-6 before rallying back and coming from behind with terrific tennis to tie things up 8-8.  The tiebreaker was also close but they pulled off a stunning victory winning the tiebreak 7-5 and taking the match 9-8. This was the first victory for both players. Congratulations!

The next matches for the tennis team (pending weather) is at Paideia today and at home  tomorrow against Galloway (boys only).
