Congratulations to the Montpelier High School girls tennis team and their coaches Wendy Watson and Laura Furber. In the final match, Montpelier defeated Burr and Burton Academy 7-0.
Burr and Burton Academy has had an incredible tennis record. The team hadn’t been defeated in 40 matches during which time they collected several state titles. Burr and Burton has the advantage of recruiting talented athletes from different countries such as Spain.
According to Watson, the goal of the team, even before the season started, was to win a state championship. When I asked Coach Watson how she accounted for the remarkable win, she said the team “was very focused, worked hard on and off the court, were mentally prepared to win important points and had great team chemistry.”
With the loss of only three players next year, the team has a good opportunity to retain their title.
