18U Juniors Edge Pinewoods!


It was a great match.

The Simsmore Jr. USTA 18U match this Saturday against Pinewoods was one of the most competitive and fun to watch matches that I have ever seen as a coach. The match started out with some intense singles play on all courts. After the singles matches were completed Pinewoods was winning the match, despite being down a player and thus having to default both a singles and a doubles match.

The team knew that the overall match would be won or lost depending on their doubles matches, and they rose to the challenge. Colin Kirkland and Jordan Whalen dominated their opponents at the #1 Doubles spot with a 6-0 win. Both Mixed and #2 Doubles went to tiebreakers. Mary Pearce and Rob Brunstad took their game up to another level and won their tiebreaker 5-2. Our #2 Doubles team of Morgan Kille and Meghan Rosenberger both played very well in their tiebreaker, but lost 3-5 while both teams and everyone in the club’s lobby watched on with great anticipation.
In the end, Simsmore was victorious winning the match with an overall score of 53 to 47 games!!
