|Date:||September 22, 2017|
The DA girls keep adding to a list of firsts this season. With an 8-1 win over defending state champs Charlotte Country Day, the Cavs defeated the Bucs for the first time in over 20 years. Once again, the DA doubles took charge of the match as Galloway/Towning and Riepl/King won in matching 8-1 scores. Joy Callwood and Renee George battled with the Bucs Addison and Shuford before eventually taking the last two games and winning 8-6. In singles play, the back of the DA lineup pushed ahead as the Cavs took first sets on courts 2-6. Four Cavaliers finished within two minutes of each other to build the DA lead to 7-0. Galloway on 2, Riepl on 6, George on 4 and Towning on 3 lost a combined 7 games in their straight-set wins. Taylor Hunter took a 6-0 first set but had to rally from 2-3 down in the second for a 6-3 win. Then all eyes moved to court 1 where Callwood and Addison battled. In fact, the first game took well over 25 minutes and went to 9 deuces. At the first changeover on court 1, court 4 had already played 7 games! Addison won the first four games before Callwood took 5 of the next 6 to knot the match at 5-5. Addison took the first set 7-5 and Callwood led 3-2 in the second before she had to retire. DA is now 11-1 and will host Providence Day at 10 am Saturday.
