The VESgirlstennisteam accomplished a major feat this year—following a regular-season perfect record (10-0), they wonthe Blue Ridge Conference Championship.
Saturday’s match against twice-defending state champion North CrossSchool includedthrilling but convincing victories for Hundley Burger’20, Bebe Brogan’19, Carly Chafin’21, Katey Thomson’19 and Sally Curme’19 at #1, 3, 4, 5, & 6. Galyah Ghajar’21, at #2, went to a tie-breakeragainst her opponent, but this time came up on the short end. CarlyChafin’s match was the “clincher” to secure that necessary5thwin. Individual BRC awards were numerous, including BRC Player of the Year Hundley Burger, and a well-deserved “Coachof the Year” for Anna McWane.All-tournament players were Hundley, KateyandCarly. All-conference nods went to HundleyandGalyah.
