The Falmouth girls dominated in doubles, but were swept in singles on June 2 in their second round MIAA tournament match-up against Foxboro. With a 3-2 win, Foxboro moves on to the Division 2 south semifinals, while the Clippers’ season came to a conclusion after a 15-4 campaign.
Coach Kara Pease’s team was in it, but the second-seeded Warriors were too much at the top of their lineup.
Foxboro rolled in the singles arena. The top player for the Warriors beat Caroline Cobb, 6-0, 6-0, at first singles. Sarah Monteiro suffered a 6-4, 6-0, loss at the second spot. In the third spot, Corinne McGillicuddy dropped a 6-1, 6-2, decision.
The Clippers’ Maryasia Moskal and Holly O’Sullivan won easily at the first singles spot. The duo from FHS beat Sophia Jaberi and Morgan Noender by a score of, 6-3, 6-2, to pick up the point there.
Second doubles ended with an identical score, and with FHS on top as well. Jackie Grinnell and Emily Maness scored that win against the team of Reece Matringnetti and Michaela McCarthy.
Coach Pease said that the loss was a tough one. She was pleased with the way her team played throughout the season. In the coach’s first season, the Clippers dropped their first match in league play, with a shorthanded team, to Nauset High and then won every Atlantic Coast League match-up the rest of the year, taking a share of the league crown at the end.
