Wareham girls tennis wins senior night match
The Wareham girls’ tennis team smashed Westport during Wednesday night’s match, which also served as the team’s celebratory senior night.
The team won 5-0, continuing the squad’s undefeated streak. Coach Geoff Swett said that beyond a single match against Cohasset in last year’s playoffs, the team hasn’t lost a match in two years.
The team is currently ranked No. 2 of 64 teams in the state’s Division 4, behind only Hamilton‐Wenham Regional High.
Wednesday night’s varsity lineup included all of the team’s six seniors, who Swett will lose next season.
“It will have a huge impact,” Swett said, but he added that the team will retain a star player – sophomore Brooklyn Bindas, who Swett called the best player in the South Coast Conference. Plus, on Wednesday night, the junior varsity team won all of its matches, he said, so there’s still great players to work with.
Bindas won her No. 1 singles match 6-0, 6-0 on Wednesday, as did No. 2 singles player and senior Saige Galhardo. Senior Giuliana L’Homme won No. 3 singles 4-6, 6-0, 10-3 in a hard-fought match that saw her bounce back quickly after the first set.
Senior No. 1 doubles team Olivia Powers and Mackenzie Brodley won their match 6-0, 6-0, and senior No. 2 doubles team Chloe Hogan and Allison Sciaraffa won theirs 6-1, 6-0.
In his description of the seniors on his team, Swett praised the players for their commitment and spoke to how long he’d been playing with some of them, since 2017. Combined, the senior girls brought 29 years of tennis experience to the team this year, Swett said.
The team will take on Nauset Regional High School on Thursday, and then the girls will have about a week to prepare for the playoffs, Swett said.
