The Girls Varsity Tennis Team completed this 2011 season as Conference IIIA’s Division Champions. What an exciting time it was! At the same time, a bittersweet one, since 11 members of the team are seniors and will be off to college next year.
Glen Cove finished the season with a 9-3 record. As the #1 seed, Glen Cove’s playoff game was against Conference IIIB’s Carle Place. Carle Place was really on their game and was victorious. Still, Glen Cove should be proud of their first-place finish, since it has been more than 15 years since Glen Cove has achieved that level of success.
The members of the team honored as All-Conference were: Christine Adams, Alexandra Gerin, Catherine Liang, and Justine Sawyer. Christine’s record was the best of the entire team, winning 10 of her 12 league matches. Clearly, with a season record of 9-3, all of the girls were true competitors. The seniors on the team were: Sharon Ayiku, Christine Adams, Alexandra Gerin, Lorraine Ballero, Ashley Howard, Catherine Liang, Emily Natale, Kelly Ng, Sarah Farnan, Rina Hernandez, and Joyce Shou. Juniors Katherine Saed and Justine Sawyer, and freshman Lauren Rizzo round out the remaining team members.
To all of the seniors, we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. To next year’s returning players, come back next fall, fresh and ready for a new 2012 line-up.
Congratulations to all the girls, to a season well-played and enjoyed.
