FHS won the showdown with Cardinal Spellman, 4-1, and moves on to the next round.

You know you’re having a good day when the other team’s players are wondering how any other teams had been able to beat you during the season. FHS head coach Kara Pease laughed when some of the Cardinal Spellman players made that query after they’d lost their doubles match against the Clippers yesterday during the first round of the MIAA Division 2 South tennis tournament.

FHS did not play perfectly, but the Clippers were very good as they knocked off the Lady Cardinals with relative ease, taking a 4-1 decision. FHS advances to the quarterfinals. Foxboro, the No. 2 seed, will face the winner of today’s play-in game between Duxbury and Canton. The winner of Foxboro, and one of those teams, will then meet Falmouth in the quarters.

Corrinne McGillicuddy disposed of Sarah Wang in straight sets, 6-1, 6-1, at third singles, to finish off the win for FHS in no time.

At first singles, Caroline Cobb lost a battle against Kaitlin Hughes, 6-4, 6-4. Sarah Monteiro took a three-set win for FHS at second singles, 6-2, 2-6, 10-6.
