Clarke County Girls Varsity Tennis extended its winning record with a victory over Jefferson County, West Virginia this afternoon. Today’s victory marked the team’s tenth win with only four losses.
Head coach, Ted Schulhof attributes this year’s success to several factors; “The girls have really worked hard on the basics. They all really love the game and have a lot of fun when their on the court.”
Elizabeth Schaffer, this year’s second seed, has improved from the sixth spot last year. Schaffer attributes her current 10-6 record to better concentration and more practice. “I’ve improved my game a lot from last year mostly by working on better shots and volleys.”
Coach Schulhof says that next week’s match with division rival George Mason will be an important test for the team. “They’re a good team, but I think that we’ll be up for the challenge.”
