Middletown's girls tennis team defeated Glasgow 5- 0 Tuesday afternoon.
“We are getting better with each match, but we still have lots of room for improvement,” said Middletown tennis coach Fred Winterling after his Lady Cavaliers defeated Glasgow Tuesday afternoon in straight sets, 5-0, on a sunny but breezy afternoon. The Cavaliers also have a 5-0 record on the young season.
“I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made, especially with the weather situation all spring. But I’m also pleased with the fact that our younger players are making good progress and learning a lot from our experienced players. A lot of our girls were playing junior varsity last year,” said Winterling.
Sophomore Latifa Hinaway won the first singles match over her Lady Dragon opponent Pan Ding by the scores of 6-0, 6-1.
In the second singles match, senior Kait Weaver defeated Jackie Cornejo 6-1 and 6-1.
Senior Justice Mallard rounded out the singles play with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Eden Negusse at third singles. “It was a little windy when we started, but I think we handled the situation very well,” said Mallard.
Middletown’s first doubles team of Anna Mooney and Tatiana Hines had no problems with their opponents and won their match 6-0, 6-1.
Last, but not least, the Lady Cavs second doubles team of Alana Hidge and Chelsea Moyer won their match 6-0, 6-1.
The Cavaliers have won 24 out of the 25 sets they have played this season.
Their next matches are Wednesday at home against Brandywine, and Thursday at home against Appoquinimink starting at 3:30 p.m.
The Lady Dragons are 0-5 on the season. Their next match is Thursday against Padua Academy at 3:30 p.m.
