The Derry Area Girls Tennis Team lost a Section Match to the Valley Vikings by a score of 4-1. Earning the lone victory for the Trojans was Allison Johnston and Danielle Dominick; at First Doubles, with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Brinley Hegedus and Marisa Barca of the Vikings. Allison played her best Tennis of the year this afternoon and showed true Senior leadership. She was disciplined and very focused throughout the match. Danielle keeps improving match after match and her hustle is absolutely impressive to watch. We need more out of our other Seniors, plain and simple. They need to start stepping up and playing the type of Tennis that they are capable of playing. Derry will be going to the Sectional Singles Tournament this coming Wednesday and Thursday at Valley High School. Participating in that for the Trojans will be the First and Second Singles players, Leah and Tara Perry. This will be a good opportunity for Leah and Tara to avenge some earlier season losses and work on advancing to the WPIAL Tournament later next week.
