SENIOR RUTH CRUZ gets MVP TODAY! ruth and her partner safiya suliman defeated the wheaton girls today 7-5, 7-5!! they were down in the first set 2-5 and fought back to win. it was neck and neck in the second but in the end they prevailed!! ruth played the best tennis of her senior year and she definitely gets the “game ball”!! had the only win of the day but truly each player on this team is a winner in my eyes and heart!
sadly we are losing 5 out of the 10 players this year so it was a bittersweet day for us. alisha white, our senior and number one singles player finally got defeated after winning every previous match of the season quite handily i might add. alisha played the young lady who actually won the maryland state championships last year so it was a very tough match for alisha. she is still one of the best players i have had the honor of working with and she was a joy to coach. as was all the girls. i honestly can say after 25 years of coaching this was the best group all around i have had the privilege of coaching!! i will miss them so much and can’t wait for next year!! (our senior miss alisha white still has county championships next week so stay tuned!!)
