The no. 2, 3, and 6 matches were taken in straight games by Ava Marseglia ‘26, co-captain Amrita Natarajan ‘22, and Macy Isenberg ‘22. Marseglia took advantage of great positioning on the “T” to hit aggressive kill shots into the front corners, while Natarajan used deep cross courts to stay in control of the points, and Isenberg employed high serving and lobs to keep her opponent in the back of the court. In the no. 4 and 5 positions, co-captain Mackenzie Caruso ‘22 and Ilianna Brett ‘24 fought hard to defend the serve and won their matches 3-1, with especially impressive fourth games that demonstrated their adaptive strategies. In the no. 1 position, Sophia Lazor ‘27 had a tough battle (1-3) against an opponent with precise drop shots, but Lazor never gave up and played excellent length shots on both sides of the court. The match of the day came in the no. 7 spot, when Katharine Doar ‘22 traded games with her opponent only to come back from a 2-1 deficit and take the match 3-2. Doar took charge in the last two games with her effective serving off the wall and deep drives to the back on both sides. It was a spectacular showing all around!
