GILFORD — The Golden Eagles girls' tennis team didn't win a single game last season, but going into this spring Coach Hermann Defregger had high hopes for the girls. Last week they went 2-0 against White Mountains and Inter-Lakes, and had a 6-6 record as of press time.

Gilford traveled to White Mountains on May 9 and had a great day with a 9-0 win. Reagan McIntire and Olivia Salesky beat their opponents 8-0. Sarah Fillion, Josey Curley and Hannah Lord had 8-1 wins. Olivia Comeau won 8-5.

The pairings of Fillion/McIntire and Lord/Comeau won 8-0 in doubles matches. Curley and Salesky won 8-1.

"It was the longest away match and everybody stepped up and played very well," said Defregger.

Gilford then had a tough contest against Inter-Lakes, winning the battle 6-3. The two rivals were tied after singles matches and Gilford came back strong in doubles by sweeping the Lakers. Winning singles were McIntire 8-4, Curley 8-1 and Lord 8-6.

Defregger said he is very proud of the team after not winning a match last year, and as of press time they were in ninth place and one shy of making the playoffs. He knows that this week's opponents of Littleton and first place Berlin are tough, but is not ready to count out his team.

"You never know," said Defregger. "Maybe we can sneak in there."

The boys' tennis team continued its dominance and remained undefeated after another perfect week on the courts. Last week they had a doubleheader win over White Mountain with scores of 6-0 and 9-0, as well as a win in a rematch of last year's state championship against Inter-Lakes with a score of 7-2.

In the opening match against White Mountains Gilford swept the singles. Grant Workman won 8-1, Christian Workman won 8-1, Tyler Hanf won 8-0, Connor Craigie won 8-1, Kyle Davies won 8-1 and Alden Blais won 8-2.

In the second match Gilford swept both the singles and doubles matches.

Against Inter-Lakes Christian Workman won 8-2, Hanf won 8-0, Craigie won 8-3, Davies won 8-3 and Blais won 8-5. The pairing of Grant Workman and Craigie won 8-1 in doubles, and Mikey Eisenman and Colton Workman won 8-5.

Gilford will host a quarterfinal match on Tuesday, May 23 at 4 p.m.
