First NLC Win at #1 Singles

Tonight was Meg's second match of the week and her first in conference.  The girls played at Goshen and it was a chilly one.  Doug, Mom and Dad all made it by the first serve.  Cam and I arrived after his practice ended.  Meg started off on fire and was up 4-1 early.  Goshen's player hung in there and started to make a rally closing the gap to 4-3.  Meg's coach talked to her at the change over and gave her some strategy tips that worked well for her.  Meg finished the set at 6-3 and although she lost her serve in the first game of the second set, she was able to cruise to a 6-1 win.

We were all really proud of Meg.  She has worked hard on tennis this winter and it has paid off.  This season will be a challenge for her.  Playing #1 as a sophomore will be tough.  Glad that she could start the conference matches with a win.
