The Rockford girls varsity tennis team celebrates their first-place victory at the Ludington Invitational on Saturday, May 2.

The Rockford girls varsity tennis team brought home a first-place trophy last week from the Ludington Invitational, which occurred at Ludington High School’s brand-new Schoenherr Tennis Center on Saturday, May 2. The invitational also featured Traverse City West High School. Forest Hills Eastern High School bowed out, citing swine flu concerns.

The Rams posted 10 points, the TC West Titans 8, and the Ludington Orioles 6. Rockford players who received medals for winning their flights were Alex Stembaugh (third singles), Mackenzie Young and Michaela Young (third doubles), and Lindsay Gauger and Meliah Mead (fourth doubles).

Earlier in the week, the Rams traveled to Grand Haven and posted a 4-4 tie. Stembaugh won at third singles, 6-3 and 6-2. Also snagging wins in Grand Haven were second doubles players Anna Sinkevics and Heather Williams (6-3, 7-6), Young and Young at third doubles (6-0, 6-0), and Gauger and Mead at fourth doubles (6-3, 6-2).

At a non-conference match last week, the Rams claimed a 5-3 victory over Northview, the alma mater of Rockford Coach Tom Huzing.

A full schedule was planned for the week of May 3, as the Rockford team was to play two matches that were postponed by rain earlier in the season, as well as two scheduled matches. The week is expected to culminate on Saturday with the OK Red conference meet at Jenison High School.

So far for this rainy spring season, the Rockford Rams girls varsity tennis team has a record of four wins, one loss and one tie. The team has won two invitationals and came in second in another.
