Falmouth High School’s girls’ tennis team has not had a great year, but the Clippers continue to battle despite the losses. FHS came very close to putting one in the win column on the road Monday, May 20, when they traveled to take on Marshfield, but fell short in a tight one, 3-2.
Falmouth (1-11) picked up wins at the top of the lineup, but the Rams’ depth proved to be the difference.
Abbie Corner won at first singles for FHS in a three-setter against Amelia Saad. Corner opened with a 6-0 win in the first set. Saad won the second, 6-4, but then Corner rallied to take the third by a 6-4 score.
Julie Bridges won a bit easier at second singles. The Clipper scored a 6-2, 6-3 win against Marshfield’s Joan Gale.
Molly Gedney fell at third singles against Leslie Abbott. The Ram scored a 6-1, 6-0 win.
In doubles, Melanie Rosenblatt and Callie Shank ran out of gas at the number-one spot. Sofia Curto and Erin Traci won by a 6-4, 6-2 score. Sofia Cilfone and Riley Cooper suffered a similar fate at second doubles. Maddie Moeykens and Kate Collins won that, 7-5, 6-2.
