The FHC girls varsity tennis team took on a tough Grand Rapids Christian team on Tuesday, and while the team didn’t leave with the outcome it wanted, there have been multiple improvements in multiple flights.

With some finalizations to the lineup coming shortly, the young four doubles tandem got a crucial win in three sets. With a few flights winning their respective matches, the team is just getting ready for a deep run at states. The singles flights made their presence known winning all three matches that were completed. the third and fourth flights dominated their opponents winning in only two sets each. Lily Ohlman, playing two singles, had a come from behind victory after losing the first set 2-6. In the end, the girls ended up tying the Eagles 4-4. 

The girls are improving day in and day out, grinding to be at their peak when the end of the season comes. The hard-fought match didn’t result in the way FHC wanted it to be, but it’s the end of the season that counts—not 4-4 ties early on in the season.

In this match, senior Libby Moog went down early in her match with a foot injury. As her career at FHC has been riddled with injuries, the team can only hope her injury is minor and that she will come back in due time.

“The injury is unfortunate, but it will just make me appreciate every match from here on out because this could happen any match, and it could be my last,” Libby said.

As Libby looks at it with optimism, the rest of the team also hopes she can get to full strength. While she is a suitable captain and leader for the young team off the court,  on the court, she is even more valuable, showing tremendous grit on the court.
