Even though the girls' tennis season was cut drastically short due to the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantines, Ray Knight, the new varsity coach, liked what he saw.
"I got the opportunity to work and practice with the team, and I was happy with their enthusiasm and efforts," he said. "We had a few practices and got shut down for two weeks. When we went back, we played eight matches but got eventually shut down again, which meant no playoffs for the team." Next fall, he looks forward to helping the players improve their tennis skills even more.
The Middle School girls’ tennis program provides an excellent opportunity for students to learn about the sport and meet other students who have interest in tennis. This team serves as an important foundation to students as they prepare for the increasingly competitive varsity team in the Upper School.
Upcoming Girls' Tennis Schedule
Over the last few years, the girls’ tennis program has established itself as one of the top teams in the area and in the state. In total, the program has won 12 conference titles (2004-2007, 2011-2017, 2019), six Prep B Championships (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2018, 2019), five Non-Public South Sectional Championships (2012-2016), and one Non-Public B State Championship in 2007. This recent string of success has made it one of the top athletic programs here at Gill.
