Tonight was the first night for the NLC conference tournament for girls tennis. Meg drew a tough opponent - Plymouth's #1 singles. She had played her Monday night and lost 6-0, 6-0. The girl was definitely good, but unfortunately extremely unpleasant. Tonight was no different. Meg did play better than Monday and won some great points. We were impressed with how well she hit the ball. The outcome was the same, and the opponent was just as unpleasant, but Meg felt great about how she did.
Doug missed the first match as he and Cam went to Miss Cheryl's retirement party. I was glad that they were able to go. Cal, Meg and Cam thrived in her preschool and it was nice that they were there when she was honored. After the dedication of the playground in Cheryl's name, Doug dropped Cam off at home. He made it to Meg's second match of the night. This time she was pitted against Northridge's #1 singles player. This girl had beaten Meg before as well, but she definitely was friendlier. Meg played fantastic. Both Doug and I were impressed. Meg won the first game, but ended up losing in two sets. After catching her breath and talking to us for a little bit, she was able to process the loss and felt great about how she played tonight. We were very proud of her.
