Both the Varsity and JV showed their improvement over the course of the season through this meet, as our scores were better this time compared to the first time we played Spencer, which was the first meet of the season.  The varsity lost 0-9 last time, and this time we got one win and had much closer sets in many other matchups, while the jv won both times, but this time by a 7-2 margin, improved from the 6-3 victory in April. The one varsity victory was Will at #4 singles, and he played an excellent match, playing the net extremely well and keeping his opponent back by hitting deep shots.  Hunter was very close to victory at #3 as well, losing in a match tiebreak.  Hunter moved better than any match I've seen him play, and played great defense against a very aggressive hitter.  Michael also had a great first set against the top player in the conference, getting up 4-1, until Alex really turned it on and grabbed control of the match late in that first set.  In the doubles, all three teams started strong, but all lost close sets, and then things just got away from us at the end as the second sets were not as close as we would have liked.  We, of course, would have liked to win more matches than we did, but Spencer is the team to beat in the conference this year.  They are undefeated on the season, and have hardly been challenged by anyone, so just keeping a number of sets and matches close shows we have improved and fought hard against a very tough lineup.  -Coach Dan Taylor
