At last, the Nelson girls tennis team got to play on its home court Monday afternoon after waiting for the resurfacing to be completed.
The new court is gray but will later be painted.
Nelson broke in the new court with a 6-3 victory against Amherst.
“This was our first true home match,” said Nelson coach Holly Jones. “I know the girls were thrilled to finally be able to play on the new courts. I was very proud of the girls, and I know everyone was happy to get a win.”
Jones was missing her number on-seeded singles player Destinee Glover who was sick and couldn’t play.”
Elizabeth Campbell, the number 7- seeded singles player took over that spot.
“I was proud of the way the team stepped up when one of our players was not in the lineup,” said Jones. “After our loss against Waynesboro last week, we worked on serving, communication, and doubles strategies. I was especially happy with the way our doubles teams played last night. It was nice seeing the girls’ hard work finally pay off this season.”
