The Marblehead High girls tennis team ended the regular season with a 13-5 record and was ranked 20th coming into the Division 2 state tournament, where they opened up against host Milton (11-6, 13th seed) in a Round of 32 match-up on June 1. But despite going on the road, they still took care of business against the Wildcats, 3-2.
Coach Tracy Ackerman’s team has since advanced to the Sweet 16 against a more familiar opponent in Masco (15-0, fourth seed) on Monday, June 5, at its Boxford campus after the Current’s press deadline.
Pauline Geissler lost in first singles to her Milton counterpart, 0-6, 0-6. Andrea Potvin fell in second singles, 3-6, 1-6. But Charly Cooper got her teammates on the right side of the scoreboard with a 6-1, 6-0 triumph in third singles.
The first doubles team of Courtney Yoder and Aviva Bornstein was also victorious, 7-6, 6-4. Aoife Breshnahan and Lucia Levin helped clinched the road win in second doubles, 6-2, 6-0.
