On May 9, the Staples girls varsity tennis team played a home match against Westhill on Senior Day. The overall score was 7-0— a complete victory for the Staples Wreckers. Although the number one singles player, Katie Reiner ’12, was unable to play due to a wrist injury, the number two singles player, Melissa Beretta ’14, filled in for Reiner to help Staples win.

According to co-captain Hannah Bjornson ’11, the best part of the match, apart from the “gorgeous” weather, was that everyone played very well. “Everyone was very positive and in a great mood,” Bjornson said.

On this senior day, the underclassmen displayed posters and flyers of all the senior girls throughout the school. Co-captain Farrel Levenson ’11 explained how this year’s event was different because the team ordered their shirts this year, rather than making them which had been a tradition. In addition, during the ceremony, each underclassman talked about positive qualities of a certain senior. “It was really sweet and the coaches said a few words about everyone, as well,” Levenson said.

In response to the victory, Levenson said that she was very excited. She said that during the 2010 season, Staples beat Westhill 4-3; this year’s score was an improvement. “It was very good to win, especially considering we are playing against New Canaan, one of our biggest rivals, this Thursday,” Levenson said.
