The Western Albemarle Girls Tennis team downed Charlottesville Thursday on Senior Night, 9-0, improving to 13-1 on the season. Afterwards, the team celebrated the careers of their four graduating seniors: Haven Higgins, Sarah Inman, Corinne Jennings, and Anna Savage.
"These four have been dedicated teammates and have served the program well, and we are so grateful to have had them on our team," said Warriors head coach Ellen Markowitz. "They are role models for their younger teammates, and demonstrate that leadership comes from everyone, and players can lead in different ways, on or off the court.
"We will miss them next year. Corinne is off to Virginia Tech, Sarah to Elon, Haven to UVA, and Anna to JMU. They have been a joy to coach, and always brought their best effort, attitude and respect to their teammates and coaches, and represented Western with class."
The win over Charlottesville capped a run of three district victories in consecutive nights for the Warriors, who improved to 12-0 in the Jefferson District with two matches to play next week. Western will host Albemarle on Monday in a rematch of a tight 5-4 match won by the Warriors on April 23, before traveling to Fluvanna to close out the regular season on Tuesday. Region play begins the week of May 20.
