On Tuesday, Sept. 22, the Washington Lady Blue Lion tennis team hosted the Miami Trace Lady Panthers for a Frontier Athletic Conference match.

Miami Trace won the match, three courts to two.

At first singles, Washington’s Brooklyn Foose beat Savannah Wisecup, 6-3, 6-2.

At second singles, Miami Trace’s Alex King beat Mei Kobayashi, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5 (8-6).

“That was a great match,” Miami Trace head coach Kim Schirtzinger said.

The teams split the matches in doubles.

At second doubles, Miami Trace’s Dee Page and Brooklyn Riggs won over Sofia Siscoe and Abby Wilson, 6-4, 6-0.

Schirtzinger also gave a shout-out to Abby Rose.

“Abby played all of our j-v players one game each,” Schirtzinger said. “And she was so happy to do it.

“So, parents got to watch their kids play at least one game since Washington had no j-v players (Tuesday). She played nine different girls.

“What a rockstar she is,” Schirtzinger said. “She helped my j-v girls out during play and she smiled the whole time. A big thanks to her!”
