The WAHS Girls Tennis team dropped their season-opening match at home Friday night to two-time defending Class 4 champion Hanover, 8-1.
"Despite the loss, we are happy to be playing!" said Western head coach Ellen Markowitz. "We had a lot of good tennis, along with some nerves, as it was our opening night.
"Hanover is a very strong team, and we appreciate the opportunity to challenge ourselves and get better by playing them. Last year they beat us handily, so it was a positive that we had many competitive matches."
Senior Sarah Inman got the lone point for the Warriors, grinding her way to an 11-9 win on Court 4 after trailing 1-4 early. The Warriors were edged out on Courts 2, 3, and 6, with newcomer Austin Winslow narrowly dropping a tiebreaker on Court 2, and Stephanie Hass on Court 3 and Sarah Randolph Warren on Court 6 coming oh-so-close as well.
"We have a lot to build on from tonight, and we will keep moving forward," added Markowitz.
The Warriors are back in action with another non-district home match on Friday, March 22 against James Monroe. The Yellow Jackets were state runners-up in Class 3 last season. Match time is 5:00 pm at the Western Albemarle courts.
