A quick article about a quick tennis match ... L-S beat ELCO
In another successful tennis match, L-S defeated ELCO 6 to 1. ELCO brought only seven players, barely above the minimum.
In doubles, the Capoferri sisters got off to a rough start, as ELCO won five of the eight games. Having handily won previous matches during the season, the Capoferris' struggles were uncharacteristic, and prompted teammate Sam Tran to say, “That never happens!”
Towards the end of their match, though, the sisters came back to win 8 to 5. The second doubles were in the lead while struggling for a few matches, whereas the third doubles were undefeated in a speedy match.

“Court 3 is killing it! They are doing amazing!” commented one of the players.
Sami Williams and Izzy Mazaheri won their doubles match on the third court, which helped to win all of the doubles matches.
Later, during singles, Lauren Rettew won a very quick match, whereas Taylor Capoferri’s singles match took longer than usual -- her opponent was very well paired against her. This has not been the first time that the Capoferris have played with the top ELCO girl, they have played with her before during tennis tournaments.
