Fluco girls tennis falls twice

By Duncan Nixon

Historically tennis is not a sport in which the Fluco athletes have excelled. Their teams are often made up of athletes just starting to learn the game. However, it is a game that you can play for the rest of your life.  For a number of years, before the new high school was built, the boys team played on the Lake Monticello courts and the girls team played its home matches at Camp Friendship. Now there are courts at the high school and the location tends to be a bit windy. The tennis teams can now walk to their home matches.

On May 2 and May 5, the girls team hosted Goochland County and Monticello High. The team results were not good for the Flucos, but Coach Ken Larios said that his team “is working hard in practice and matches.” He noted that against Goochland his players “were catching up.” Unfortunately, they did not manage many wins. The only winner for the Flucos was Jenna Glowatch in the number 2 singles slot.

The Flucos fielded slightly different line ups in their matches last week. Catherine Napier and Glowatch, who are both seniors, played at number 1 and number 2 in both matches. Emma Abel, a sophomore, played at number 3 in one match. Emma Ward, a junior played at number 3 and at number 4. Aubrie Seay, also a junior, played at number 4 and at number 5. Emma Pitman, a junior, was the number 5 player in one match and the number 6 player in the other. Alyssa Johnson, yet another junior filled the number 6 spot for one match.

The girls tennis team played at Orange County on May 10. They will be at home on May 12 hosting Western Albemarle. Their regular season ends on May 17 when they travel to Charlottesville High.
