Freshman Kelly Dame rescued the DHS girls’ tennis team from suffering its first shutout of the season when she battled Hingham’s Danielle Vanzura to a 4-6/6-4 tie before winning a tiebreaker, 10-5, in the third set for the Lady Dragons’ only win in a 4-1 loss to Hingham.
“She has an incredible competitive nature,” said Coach Jutta Rossano of Dame.
Not as fortunate were the other singles players, as Michaela Dowd and Casey Reinhart were both shutout, 6-0/6-0, to Katherine Ripple and Julia Krumholtz, respectively, at No. 1 and No. 2.
Lilly Weil and Caroline Phinney suffered the same fate at No. 1 doubles in their shutout loss to Madi and Nikki Lund, 6-0/6-0, while the No. 2 doubles tandem of Meg O’Neal And Nicole Hanrahan fought valiantly and played great tennis according to Rossano before falling, 4-6/5-7.
Now sporting a 10-4 record, the Lady Dragons began a stretch of four matches in four days on Monday when they took on Hanover. On Wednesday afternoon they will host Marshfield at 4 p.m.
