BUHS girls tennis team is eliminated
BURLINGTON -- The 10th seeded Brattleboro girls tennis team was swept by No. 7 Burlington, 7-0, in the first round of the Division 1 tournament on Tuesday.
"As expected, Burlington was a very strong team. It was a tough way to end our season, but we had a good year. Everyone seemed to improve a lot throughout the year. Win or lose, this team enjoyed the match and each other. It was a joy for me to be able to work with them," said BUHS coach Tom Weber. "We have a solid nucleus coming back next year. I hope this team recognizes that to really compete with the very best, they need to put in the work in the offseason."
Katie Tsukamoto, Jenn Hutton, Taylor Bird, Jaida Henry, Grace Willingham, and the first doubles duo of Aliza Racine-Haley Marcil all lost in two sets. At second doubles, Burlington's Katherine Becker-Lily Weissgold defeated Brattleboro's Greta Larson-Danielle Looman 4-6, 6-1, 10-6.
The Colonels finished up with a 5-10 record. Burlington will host No. 15 St. Johnsbury in Friday's quarterfinal.
