Rye Country Day Girls’ Tennis

By Melanie Cane

In its first year as a spring sport and therefore in the FAA league, the Rye Country Day Girls’ Tennis team finished the season with a 10-4 record. In their last regular match, May 12, they beat King 5-2. All of the doubles teams won 6-0, 6-0.

Freshman Sena Selby, the top singles player, played her best match of the season. She beat King’s top player who until then was undefeated in league play.

On May 15, Selby and the No. 1 doubles team of Lily Rosen and Sofia Wilmer made it to the semifinal round of the FAA tournament. Both Selby and Rosen/Wilmer lost in the semifinals to the eventual champions.

Coach Jen Smith said it was a terrific season. “This being the first time the girls played in the spring, the team did quite well. I am very proud of all the players and thank them for their commitment.”
