Girls tennis: Newtown becomes a threat

Another South-West Conference opponent emerges as a threat to the Weston High girls tennis team this season.

The Trojans, who lost their first league match in five years when they fell to Joel Barlow earlier this month, also had their hands full when they visited unbeaten Newtown last Monday. Aside from a win at first singles, they could not figure out their opponent in a 6-1 loss.

Weston’s lone victory came with Kimmy Guerin defeating Caroline Kelly 6-1, 6-1. The Nighthawks took the remaining contests in straight sets.

Catherine Kravchenko lost a 6-3, 6-2 decision to Lauren Frazzetta in the number two spot. Moving up to third singles, Kristen Rivera lost 6-2, 6-1 to Mia Terracino.

The Trojans had no eligible player for fourth singles, losing by forfeit.

The doubles contests were not much easier. Morgan Murray and Jessy Gersh, who lost their first match to the season to Barlow, suffered the same outcome to Julia Frattaroli and Stephanie Roman by a 6-1, 6-2 score at first doubles.

Julia Weisman and Sarah Greisman won just one game off Maggie Kost and Annie Beier before losing 6-0, 6-1. Making it a clean sweep at doubles, Aimee Alexander and Meghan Logan defeated Bari Blitzer and McKenzie Murray 6-1, 6-2 in the number three spot.

Weston righted itself three days later when it went to Wolfe Park in Monroe to face Masuk. All but one match went its way for a 6-1 win.

Guerin remained unbeaten with a 6-0, 6-0 sweep of Lindsey Brooks. Kravchenko defeated Demi Skenderis 6-2, 6-1.

Masuk’s only win was at third singles with Kaileen Boivie defeating Rivera 6-4, 6-0. Greisman had a close second set but managed a 6-3, 7-6 win over Erin Mahoney.

Morgan Murray teamed up with Jennie Bear at first doubles and together they won a close 6-4, 7-6 contest from Lauren Hurley and Mary Lacey. McKenzie Murray and Blitzer were at second doubles and survived a three-setter against Samantha Johnston and Amy Rajport 6-3, 0-6, 6-3.

Weisman and Lexie Hero teamed up at third doubles for a 6-3, 7-6 win over Christina Asetta and Hayley Lazar.

Weston, now 11-3 overall, starts the SWC semifinals today (Thursday) at a time and against an opponent to be determined.
