Published DateThe Gilford High School girls' tennis team played its last match of the season on Friday, losing to Bow, 8-1, in the semi-final round of the Division III tournament. The team's overall record for the season was 12 wins, 4 losses.
Charleyne Panner, playing in the second singles spot, was the only Gilford player to earn a point for her team, beating Bow's Nisha Naik 8-3.
Gilford had advanced to the semi-final round after narrowly defeating Profile. Coach Hermann Defregger said, "We knew that playing Profile and Bow will be very challenging for us, but I'm very proud of our team. They gave it their best and that's all I can ask of them each time they step on the court. Tobe in the top four again out of 18 teams in Division III is a great accomplishment for this team. I certainly will miss Cheralynn Corsack and Charleyne Panner, who have been my number one and two for all four years and have had an outstanding high school career."
