Tiger girls’ tennis takes 7-0 loss at Golden

The Summit High girls’ tennis team struggled to a 7-0 loss Thursday in a Jeffco League match at Golden High School.

The Tigers, who have had a number of matches postponed or canceled due to poor weather this season came out a bit sluggish against Golden, SHS head coach Sean Carlton said.

“All of our girls seemed to get off to a slow start in the first set and then in the second sets, we just couldn’t finish off points,” the Tiger coach said.

Summit wound up being swept in every match.

“They were definitely on their games and played on a whole another level,” Carlton said.

Julie Oberriter, Jessica Covaciu and Amy Modglin each lost their singles matches. Then Sophia Bolt and Ania Zawadzki lost at No. 1 doubles; Melissa Gordon and Julie Arbuckle lost at the No. 2 spot; Melissa Chumbley and Christine Fernandez lost the No. 3 match; and Kenzie Morgan and Amanda Moore lost in No. 4 doubles.

Although the Tigers are still a respectable 2-3, Carlton said the lack of matches and the strange schedule thus far has had an impact on his team.

“I think it plays on the girls’ minds to have it all planned to play then have it canceled,” Carlton said. “They have to be ready and have that mind-set of being ready and focused either way.”

Still, Carlton said his team’s recent play, regardless of score, has been a good sign of some things to come.

“They’re in there with every team that we’ve played,” he said. ” … They just have to finish points and have positive mind-sets. They have to play to win and not play to not lose.”

The Tigers are back in action April 20 at Evergreen.
