The girls’ tennis team’s season ended with a sour note losing to Cor Jesu 5-0 in the districts tournament on the Sept. 26. Their overall record for this season is 8-6.

Coach Nick Tanurchis said who were the toughest schools to beat.

“It varies from year to year, but Lafayette, Central, and Marquette are a few schools with usually strong teams,” he said.

Lafayette beat the Patriots 9-0. Central beat the Patriots 9-0. Marquette beat the Patriots 1-8.

Sophomore Maggie Moore said what was one of the easiest team to beat

“Ritenour is one of the easiest teams to beat,” she said.

Tanurchis mentioned who the top players were.

“The top players are Maggie Moore, Emily Xu, Emily Davis, Danielle Mullen, Rebecca Holmes, Amy Zhang, Adela Keller,”  he said.

Tanurchis said,

“The doubles team of Moore and Xu have been very impressive this season and won the Parkway West Doubles tournament by defeating Cor Jesu, Villa, Westminster, and Ladue,” he said.

As many students athletes know it is very difficult juggling school and sports. Maggie Moore mentions how she does it taking six honors classes.

“Time management and self motivation,” Moore said.

Mullen made varsity and then tore her acl in the beginning of the season. She said what her goals were for this season

“Play as well as I can. Finish the season,”  she said.

She also mentioned how it feels getting back to the court

“Pretty good it feels good after a long time,” she said

Tanurchis said what the team needed to improve on.

“We are always trying to be students of the game and work on various aspects such as stroke mechanics, player positioning, and shot selection,” he said.

Moore was voted MVP last year. She mentioned why she likes playing tennis.

“You get to push yourself to do better and push my team to do better,” she said.

Mullen said what her strongest past of the game is,

“My ability to get the ball back,” Mullen said.
