Thursday, Aug. 10, 2023, the MHS Girls’ Tennis team traveled to the Cache Valley Invitational and brought home first place  in the event that included 16 teams from across Northern Utah.  Three singles players and three doubles teams represented the Trojans and competed against several 4A and 5A schools to earn their first place finish.  Senior Savannah Dutson went 2-1 at 1st Singles while junior Sophie Rabe tallied a 3-0 record at 2nd Singles.  At 3rd Singles, senior Kelsey Scoresby earned a perfect 3-0 record.  The 1st Doubles team of senior Carys Morgan and sophomore Macey Dee played to a 2-1 tournament with 2nd Doubles matching their record.  Teaming up for 2nd Doubles were combinations of Willa Anderton, junior; Kaitlyn Carter,  junior; and Isabella Dickman, sophomore.  The tournament also hosted a 3rd Doubles bracket, and Morgan was represented by Anderton, Carter, Dickman, and junior Averee Mecham who went 2-1 as coaches tried different combinations early in the season.

“Our first week went really well,” Coach Katherine Hadley reported.

The team has played three individual matches against 4A Logan and Ridgeline and 5A Provo.  Each season match ended 3-2 for the other schools as the Trojans continue to play a tough preseason lineup to prepare their young team for Region 13 competition.

After a home match against East on Wednesday, Aug. 16, the team headed to sunny St. George for a two-day tournament Aug. 18-19.  They will commence region play Aug. 24 at Rowland Hall and will return for their next home matches against Grantsville  Aug. 29 and St. Joseph Aug. 31. λ
