Sports News: Raiders Win Section 1 Championships

radierstennischampsThe Raiders Girls Varsity Tennis Team won the Section I Championship on Sunday October 13. The girls played over the course of three days against Somers, Harrison, and Byram Hills for the championship. Although some of the matches were very tight, the girls pulled through and continued to work their hardest and cheered each other on. The team sent one singles player and four doubles teams into post-season play.

On Friday October 11 the Raiders went 4-0 against Somers, then scored another 4-0 victory over John Jay. Harrison proved to be a very tough adversary in the semi-finals, where Scarsdale came out on top 4-2. Many of the matches against Harrison were split sets and went into grueling tiebreakers.

The final match was against Byram Hills when Scarsdale again scored a 4-2 win and took the Section 1 title. The victory capped off an excellent regular season when the team finished undefeated with a 16-0 record with no one on the team losing a single league match.

According to Coach Jennifer Roane: "This is the first team section 1 championship for Scarsdale. We were seeded #1 going into the tournament; The girls handle the pressure well and let their tennis speak for themselves."
