Dade’s number two singles player Lance Moore’s match went back and forth for well over an hour and half but after three hard sets he took the loss. The number three singles ended up with a win after a forfeit. Aiden Ross and Jonathan Dupree, number two doubles, also took the dub on the court with a 6-4, 6-3 win.

Everyone got their money’s worth watching number one singles, Alleigh Daniels, play another two-hour match. She won her first set 6-2.

Then, her opponent came back and won the second set 4-6. Daniels dug deep to come back from the upset and left it all on the court, defeating her opponent 6-2 in the third set to secure the Lady Wolverines’ match victory.

Number two doubles, Cassidy Klitzke and Bella Varricchio, brought the lights on that evening to finish their match. They also took their match into a tie breaking third set. They played hard but lost in the third set.

Wolverine tennis coach Jennifer Wood said, “We knew it was going to be a tough match going up against Darlington, who hasn’t lost yet in our region. But each line went out on the court ready to play.”

“The Wolverine players walked off the court with their heads held high and the coaches congratulating them on their points and games won.

It proved that each player’s game had improved this year. Our number three Lady Wolverine doubles team played an expedition match against Darlington and came close to winning. Kayci Moore and Lydia English played while their teammates cheered them on in a match full of excitement and great points. They lost 3-6, 3-6 which was the best score of the day,” Coach Wood added.
