John F Kennedy High School
Watkins Mill High School
The tennis team represented Kennedy at Watkins mill on an amazingly beautiful October afternoon! We changed our lineup a bit and moved everyone up since the opposing team had only four players.
Leticia was down a set in number one singles and came back, fought hard, and won!! It was the best thing to witness-a player fighting back from behind to win!! And Safiya had a thought time with her opponent as well-as a coach I asked her to go outside her box and play in a way she wasnât planning yet she did it for me! And she did so well! In the end she barely lost in a third set tie breaker, but the fact that she became a princess warrior on that court was magical to behold!! Way to go Safiya!! You will get her next time!! Ruth was unstoppable and simply dominated her opponent with amazing slice winners!! No doubts in her victory today!! Our freshman maria played at four against a senior and the seniors experience as an athlete payed off today. Maria was defeated but a lot is to be learned from a loss and maria is only going to get better!! We are so lucky to have such a refreshing and positive role model on our team-you are awesome maria!! You are a winner to me!!
