Boys fall short against Maui Prep.
Last weekend, the Molokai High girls’ tennis team took home its first two Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) wins of the season with a solid 3-0 victory in both matches over Maui Prep. The boys’ team fell short, losing both matches 0-3 at Molokai High School on Saturday.
The Lady Farmers’ Aloha Will defeated her first opponent, Aja Toscana 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 singles, and then took victory over Samantha Hartsell 6-3, 6-1 in her second match.
Senior Kalani Wainwright, a three-year veteran of the tennis team, also defeated both of her opponents at No. 2 singles, the first 6-1, 6-1, and then in her second match, 6-0, 6-0.
“I’m excited to get my first [two] singles wins,” Wainwright said. “I normally only play doubles but there wasn’t enough people this time around.”
. But the important thing is that they have fun.”
The tennis team will compete against Maui High on March 26-27 at Molokai High School.
