FARMINGDALE — The Hall-Dale High School girls tennis team won its second consecutive Mountain Valley Conference championship with a closer-than-it-looks 4-1 decision Wednesday over Dirigo.

“It’s exciting because the girls have such focus in their work,” Hall-Dale coach Guy Cousins said. “Clearly, it was between two quality skilled teams.”

Hall-Dale (13-0) defeated Dirigo 4-1 in the regular season, although two of their victories came in matches that were decided in tiebreakers.

“We knew that one could’ve swung either way,” Cousins said. “We knew (Wednesday) would be a competitive match.”

Two of the matches went three sets, with the Bulldogs winning both.

Clio Barr defeated Addy Fuller at second singles, 4-6, 6-4, 7-5. Anais Truman and Maura Stottler then beat Michelle Morrison and Pin Jintasataporn at No. 1 doubles, 7-6 (7-2), 2-6, 7-5.

Hall-Dale No. 1 singles player Wendy Goldman easily won her match, dispatching Betsy Noyes 6-0, 6-1. Hall-Dale also won at No. 2 doubles, with Jana Parsons and Nicole Pelletier defeating Carol Howe and Grace Hebert 6-0, 6-2.

“It was a lot of excitement,” Cousins said. “There were a lot of great rallies.”
