Share post:

The Verona High School girls tennis team made a complete sweep of Whippany Park on Friday in the first round of the N2G1 playoffs. Verona came into the match-up as the #3 seed, while Whippany Park was #14. The match had been postponed from Wednesday after a rain storm that also scrambled Verona’s Senior Day.

Alyssa Deo set the tone at 1st singles, defeating Vanessa Qiu 6-0, 6-0. Kylee Gallagher took on Kelli Su in 2nd singles and came away with a 6-2, 6-3 win. Ashley Baumgard rounded out the singles play by beating Clarisse Noristz 6-1, 6-0.

VHS’ doubles teams were equally dominant. At 1st doubles Sara Sexton and Gillian O’Donnell defeated Sara Kahn and Lydia Bao 6-1, 6-1, while the 2nd doubles pairing of Brooke Anquillare and Caitlin Remler defeated Emma Zachary and Julie White 6-0, 6-1.

The next N2G1 playoff will see Verona hosting #6 McNair Academy, which defeated Cedar Grove in its opener. That contest is set for Monday, October 7.
