Turpin Tennis

The tennis team had an amazing showing at the ATP sectionals this week.   They advanced more people than ever before in Turpin's history to the district tournament on October 14.  Sophomore Sarah Clark won the singles bracket to qualify first with her solid serves, steady play, and her speed  to get to any balls on the court the opponent chooses to send back and then send it where they are not.    The doubles team of sophomores Brooke Malone and Morgan Kaas were also champions of the doubles bracket.   Their teamwork and communication with each other as well as net skills allowed them to defeat their opponents.   Sophomore Ellen Benintendi and partner Senior Allie Fermann  also advanced to districts as the third place team.   This is the second year for this dynamic duo to move on.   Senior Lydia Dunkle won 3 long matches before falling to the skills of the second seed,  a great finish to her 4 year tennis career.  Junior Audrey Williams  battled in singles to come up short in spite of her solid play.   

     Good luck to the ladies on Thursday at Districts.
