MHS Girls Tennis Taking Aim at Districts

The Milford High girls tennis team dropped its first three matches of the new season, but that has not stopped head coach Jim Beyer from saying his team should be able to earn a spot in the sectional tournament. "We are aiming to make the districts and we have enough talent to do it if we can put it together," he said. "It will be tough but it's definitely doable with the experience we do have back."
Milford will be lead by senior Kelly Beyer, who won two of her first three matches. The daughter of the head coach has been ranked regionally and may play in college, but a lot will depend on the quality of her senior season.
"She is playing steady," said Jim Beyer. "It's her third year playing first singles and she is a solid ground stroke player who hits it hard from both sides. She is probably the steadiest player we have had in the program in a few years."
Senior Kayla Williamson and sophomore Kate Rosenblatt will be playing second and third singles early in the season. Both are returning varsity players who are new to singles, a challenging endeavor in a tough league like the Hockomock.
"This is one of the better leagues in the state for girls tennis, so unfortunately, they need to learn on the job," said Beyer. "Kayla is a great competitor and Kate has the potential to be a number one singles player next season, but right now both of them are developing and finding their way."
Senior Shannon Breen and junior Aislin Varney will be the top doubles team. The pair had not played together on the high school stage but did play together in a summer league. "Shannon could possibly move up to be a singles player," said Beyer. "They have some talent and some experience playing together, but this is a tough league, so they need to take their game to a higher level."
Juniors Rachel Nolan and Kim Hays will form the second doubles pairing early in the year, but Beyer gives his players the chance to move themselves up within the lineup and into the lineup. He holds challenge matches to keep practices competitive and help the team improve more quickly.
The Scarlet Hawks have a varsity roster of 15 players and another dozen who will gain experience at the junior varsity level. Beyer hopes the experience and strong early schedule will help his team grow on a steeper curve.
"We have a good combination of veterans and some incoming players as well," he said. "We need to make sure we win the matches we need to win and the ones we should win. I want to see us qualify for districts as a team and I believe we can do that. Right now, we are finding out way."
