Raider girls' rackets win/lose

Emily Williams and Lyric Witten both dispatched their opponents with ease.
Areielle White played a long, close match with Ashley Potts that ended in victory for White.
“The match lasted over two and a half hours,” Raider Head Coach Steve Archer said. “After dropping the first set, she bounced back and out-hustled her opponent, finally winning the third set in a tiebreaker. … The whole team cheered her as she got on the bus.”

Hayley Seylor and Harmony Witten put together a win over Ireland Corringan and Janae Dasef 7-5, 6-4. In the last Tanya Ang and Kendra Descoteaux defeated Becky Coffland and Desiree Elliot 6-3, 6-4.
