The Trenton girls’ tennis team came onto the courts this afternoon against Woodhaven with a mindset to play aggressively so the Trojans could maintain a perfect league record.

Trenton was successful, after beating Woodhaven 6-2.

“Right now my girls are fighting to be the champion of our league. This win kept us on that road to victory. I’m really happy with how they have been developing since the beginning of the season,” said Trenton coach Lynne Herman

The starting of Trenton’s singles line-up held strong, winning them three of four flights.

Trenton’s No. 1 singles Lauren Solano beat Gabby Kabeth 6-2, 6-0 and Brittany Vinca defeated Sam Pendrick 6-1, 6-1.

At three, Elle Kersten received the third win for Trenton winning 6-0, 6-1 against Kelsey Gordon.

Woodhaven scored their first win of the day at four with Sadi Asghar defeating Diana Kurteshi 7-5, 6-3.

Heading into doubles, Trenton came through with the first win with their No. 1 doubles duo Gabrielle Wojatala and Jordan Sutherby.

Trenton beat Woodhaven’s Mariah Luna and Salina Shubik 6-1, 6-3.

Woodhaven turned the table at two with Jill Collins and Megan Tartal playing strong net which put them on top 6-2, 7-6.

The wins began rolling in again for Trenton in their remaining matches.

At three, Hannah Towe and Evelyn Metric won 6-2, 6-1 against Marvi Chaudhry and Kayla Gamino.

Trenton’s Tiffany Thompson and Rachel Rushlau defeated Anika Chaudhry and Molly Mazzella 6-0, 6-1.

Both teams played their five doubles teams, which has been used this season as a trial.

Woodhaven’s coach Tim Coleman said that they are trying out the five doubles with all teams Downriver this year, but will be deciding on whether or not the match will count for points next season.

Trenton’s five doubles team Alyssa Berry and Megan McNally were victorious against Seher Akhtar and Olivia Shniven.

“I can see the girls becoming more consistent and aware of positioning. The beginning of the season set us back because we don’t have a club or an indoor facility to practice in, but we are doing well this season with the time we’ve had to practice,” said Woodhaven coach Tim Coleman

Trenton will be playing Truman on Monday and Woodhaven is matched up with Lincoln Park on Thursday.
