Doubles Pairings Lead Varsity Tennis to 4-4 Tie

After a disappointing 7-1 loss to Meadowbrook on Wednesday afternoon, the varsity tennis team rebounded the following day against Fessenden with a 4-4 tie. Belmont Day needed a pair of wins from their double parings to fight back to even in the match. Milly Noble and Everett Dalton had a gutsy performance at #4 Doubles winning 7-6 in a tie-breaker. At #2 Doubles Eli Burger and Eden Lewis jumped out to an early lead and closed out their opponents for a solid 6-3 win. Head Coach Jim Walker was proud of the way his team responded against Fessenden and hopes to close out the season on a high note during these next two weeks.
