After rain/hurricane delays McDougle Girls Tennis finally played their first match on Friday, Sept. 21, the first day of Fall.
It was like being throw to the lions, in this case the "Cougars". Fortunately the cougars were friendly, some helped our players with scoring and rules, and the McDougle team made the most of a overmatched situation. Our team was impressed by the skill level of some of the Cougars, and learning was abundant. McDougle was not discouraged and rumor is that the players are eager to get back on the court. In fact some will practice over the weekend to get ready for the next challenge vs. Phillips on Monday. Hats off, or shoes off, to our number 1 doubles team, Piera and Sophie. They battled to 6-8, clearly a moral victory against a much better (playing) team.
