“It was a very good outing for the team. We played better than last week and we have had very little time to practice because of the weather. Every match was well contested and we were able to come back in several matches after being down early. Kimmie Farmer started slowly in the first set but came back to win big in the second and take the third set tie-breaker. Carlene Link played her best match ever and was very consistent and focused. We scored strong wins at all three doubles and worked well as a team. If we are going to challenge most teams this year we will have to play smart and consistent in doubles. The team is improving steadily and hopefully we will get some better weather so our practice time will increase,” said coach Greg Donner.
