The Champlain Valley Union High undefeated girls tennis team begins the Vermont State Individual Tournament in Montpelier on Thursday, running through Sunday.
“We have a strong field of players entered in that tournament and if we play well should advance several rounds,” Coach Amy deGroot wrote in an email to the Observer.
Next week, team playoffs begin for the Redhawks, which scored the number one seed.
“We will continue to work hard and compete well through the playoffs,” deGroot wrote.
On Wednesday, after the Observer’s press deadline, the team played St. Johnsbury High in its last regular match of the season.
On May 20, the Redhawks beat Mount Mansfield Union High 7-0, with all seven seniors on the team—Andrea Joseph, Emily Polhemus, Evelyn Mitchell, doubles Claire Stoner and Paige Watson, Natalie Puma and Marissa Landry—winning their matches.
