Other winners in the match were Stacy Plett (6-2, 6-2) at #2 singles and Kyleigh Gast (6-3, 6-4) at #3 singles. “I was a little apprehensive going in today,” said Coach Turner. “We have been struggling with our confidence lately, but we stayed pretty focused today. I was especially pleased with Ashley. She played her best tennis of the season.” The win moves the Foresters to 3-6 on the year.
