The Amery girls tennis team picked up another win, this time defeating Barron 6-1 on Aug. 31.

The Warriors swept all the doubles matches, highlighted by Hannah Bottolfson/Deidra Meyer’s 6-3, 6-4 win at No. 1 doubles over Lainy Zern and Grace Bever.

“They had a great combination of positive energy and footwork during their match,” said Amery coach Tanya Julson.

Another win Julson was impressed with was Ally de la Cruz at No. 2 singles. She had to go three sets in defeating Phoebe Jenne 7-6, 2-6, 6-2.

“She was very focused and kept her opponent on the run by placing shots to the openings,” Julson said.
