Andover Beats BB&N And Exeter in Big Wins

Despite playing in rough conditions on Friday, Andover Girls Tennis showed off its mastery over BB&N for the second time this season in a 7-2 victory.

Due to a late arrival by BB&N, the teams were forced to play matches shortened to eight game presets for both singles and doubles.

Andover knew that BB&N was seeking redemption after Andover’s victory three weeks earlier, and Co-Captains Katherine Lee ’13 and Borkeny Sambou ’12 led Andover to victory again even in virtually unplayable windy conditions.

“No matter how skilled anyone was at tennis, it wasn’t relevant. All of the matches really came down to strategy and who could use the wind best to win points. It wasn’t necessarily a pretty win for us, but a win is a win,” said Charlotte Aaron ’13.

Aaron had a strong singles match for Andover, and also played well with her doubles partner MJ Engel ’13.

On Saturday, Andover slaughtered Exeter 8-1. Andover had to play eight game pro-sets for doubles, due to time constraints once again, but this setback did not pose any serious problems.

Andover showed off its strength, particularly in doubles matches again with the pairings of Lee and Camille Price ’15, Aaron and Engel, and Sambou and Katherine Tobeason ’14.

Though Lee lost in her singles match to Exeter’s number one player, her performance was probably the strongest performance of the day. Lee fought hard, focused on playing her own game and exemplified tremendous consistency and composure in all of her hits.

Andover’s match against Middlesex was rained out on Wednesday, but it looks to continue its current winning streak against Milton next Wednesday.
