Rockford varsity girls tennis named conference winners

First ever in school’s history

Conference champs Courtney and Renee Fedeson competes at number two doubles.

After play was delayed due to rain on Saturday, May 12, the competition continued on Monday, May 14, with every player knowing what was expected. They went into competition with a three-way tie between Rockford, Hudsonville and West Ottawa. Everyone knew they had to give their best and one extra step higher to win, and they did. The girls played their hearts out and no matter for which position, because it was all for the team.

“Conference was something we’ve never achieved,” said Coach Tom Huizing. “We wanted to represent our school and the program. We knew that we had a chance at the conference title. It was just a matter of doing it. We put out the best on the court and it was good enough. I’m very proud of these young ladies. Their hearts are big and their game backed them up.”

Rockford’s varsity girls tennis team is victorious in conference play.

Renee and Courtney Fedeson (two doubles) and Allysa Bowman (four singles) were conference champs, while Marjeanne Bothma (two singles) and Paula Downs and Brittney Raisch (three doubles) were conference runners-up.

“Winning conference is really exciting, especially since it was the first time ever for Rockford,” said senior Lauren Korlewitz. “We had a great day and all stepped up to beat teams that we weren’t expected to. It wasn’t easy, but we fought hard and earned the win.”
