Gilford girls' tennis bests Laconia but falls to Littleton

The Gilford High School girls' tennis team stands at 3-2 after posting a 9-0 win against Laconia on Monday and falling to Littleton on Wednesday. Monday's contest was closer than the final result would indicate, though, as Laconia's top three singles players – Mikayla Bordeau, Rebecca Dragon and Kailey Nute – each lost their matches by only two games.

Winning matches for Gilford were all of the the singles players: top-seeded Lindsey Corsack, followed by Emily Hanf, Abby Lines, Kayla Vieten, Abigail Kourafas and Sisi Remick. Combining as doubles teams, the Gilford players were similarly able to handle their Laconia opponents.

Littleton got the better of Gilford on Wednesday, handing the Golden Eagles a 7-2 defeat.

Corsack won the first-seeded singles match 8-2, but none of the other Gilford players were able to surpass their opponents. Gilford's only other win of the day came from the doubles team of Lines/Vieten.Gilford will have a chance to earn its fourth win this afternoon, when White Mountains visits.
