Coming off of another great season in 2016, the Wreckers are ready to go to the championship again for girls tennis. Last year they went 16-1-0, with their only loss occurring at Darien. In the 2016 postseason, the Wreckers clinched the Class L State championship, defeating Greenwich, but fell short to Darien again in FCIAC finals.

 

This year, the Wreckers are shooting for both titles. “This upcoming season our main goals are to finally win FCIACs since the past two years we have lost in the finals,” Kristen Butler ’18 said. Junior Gabriela Vega agrees, saying “If I could change anything I would change the outcome of the FCIAC final. Every player really gave it all they had”.

 

Butler also says that the team wants to win states, repeating last year’s success. Both Butler and Captain Tess Rubin ’17 believe that incoming freshmen will help achieve those goals. “This year we are going to have a stronger team,” Rubin said.

 

Vega attributes most of the team’s success to its “depth” and “chemistry.” “Every spot on the court, whether it’s doubles or singles, was very strong and everyone could trust each other,” she said. She also pointed out the difference that this made was heightened because of the individual nature of the sport.
The chemistry does not seem to have faded. “I think this year in particular we have such good team chemistry, which always helps,” said Butler. Butler also added that the players are going to try to get a bigger crowd to cheer them on. She also said the team is going to try to “really cheer each other on and come together as a team when we really need to”. This will help when playing their past FCIAC final opponent: Darien. “Darien is our hardest competitor, so in that match especially we are going to be a stronger team” Butler said.
