Sorry it has been so long since my last post about Nationals! Once returning back to Bethel things have been so busy, finishing up little things here and there and packing up to head home for the summer!
Our match with Oklahoma Baptist went very well. We ended up losing 2-7 but the matches were a lot closer than the final score shows. We won at two doubles with Bree Honer and Ashley Koester 8-1 and we also won the six singles with me (Madelyn Weaver) pulling out the win in straight sets 6-3 6-1. There were five points (matches) in there for us to have been able to pull out a win. These are the best results we have had at nationals yet and so it gives us hope and motivation for the years to come.
This season was a truly amazing one and I am sad it is coming to an end. We are losing two great senior women, Miranda Weaver and Shayne Runnion. These two have been tremendous leaders for our team and like sisters to me. They will be missed.
Thank you to all who have supported our team and have been keeping up with us and how our team has been doing during the season and while we were at Nationals. We have received so much support from our school including lots of snacks and drinks for the trip, a wonderful send off and even our own Athletic Director Kent Allshouse driving the 15 hour drive down to watch us play in Alabama.
We are all looking forward to what next season will hold for us!
