CVU girls tennis squad to face Rice (4/22/10)

April 22, 2010

The undefeated Champlain Valley Union High girls tennis team will have its second go-around with a tough Rice Memorial High squad at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday on the Green Knights’ home courts.

The Redhawks scuttled the Knights 6-1 on April 8, but as coach Amy deGroot noted, Rice was without one of its best players.

In the meantime, the Redhawks, at their home Shelburne courts Monday, rolled past South Burlington High, 7-0. The victory lifted CVU’s season mark to 4-0.

Kylie deGroot, the team’s number one singles player who is headed to the University of Vermont, scored a 6-0, 6-2 victory over the Rebels’ Samantha Wulfson. Other CVU singles winners were AnnaClare Smith, Abby Stoner, Colleen McCarthy and Andrea Joseph.

Triumphant doubles teams were Emily Polhemus-Claire Stoner and Kristen Donaldson-Megan Henson.

Last Thursday, the Redhawks blanked Essex High, 7-0, also on the Shelburne courts.
