Archbishop Carroll rolls to Catholic girls' tennis title

Freshman Tess Ginn, senior Belle Way, and junior Rachael Tygh swept the singles competition Friday to send the Archbishop Carroll girls’ tennis team to a 4-1 victory over Cardinal O’Hara in the Catholic League final at the Legacy Tennis Center.

By winning, Carroll avenged a 4-1 loss to O’Hara 10 days earlier in the Catholic League Class AAA final.

Ginn, at No. 1 singles, and Tygh, at No. 3, earned straight-set victories. At No. 2, Way, a senior captain, rallied past Talene Brinkert, 1-6, 6-4, 6-3. Way came back after trailing, 2-3, in the third set.

Juniors Mary Saint-Antoine and Stef Barkofski contributed the Patriots’ fourth point. O’Hara’s lone win came at second doubles, as Kate Feehery and Lauren Granata prevailed in straight sets.
