Page had a slow start winning the first set 7-6, but came out strong the second set and win 6-0. Page feels great with her performance after winning her match vs. a very talented senior from Saratoga.
“The reason that Saratoga is so good is their team is deep, which means they have really strong players all the way through, so there are no free matches” said Rachel Owens
Despite losing today Page feels like their team has been playing well with all of their losses being very close. “ We need to work on our tiebreakers (10 points that are played after opponents split sets) because we usually lose them. Every loss so far this season has been because of tiebreakers.” Page Said.
