** The Varsity 2 Doubles Duo Cassidy Overholt and Peyton Kieper were the MVP’s of the night and received the much deserved game balls. They fought hard by losing their first set, won their second and tyed the third set 6-6, so they had to then compete in a final set tiebreaker to determine the third set winner. Northridge and Central were tied for the Varsity match 2-2 at this point but Cassidy and Peyton knocked out the final win for their match 11-9 in the tiebreaker which made Northridge the overall victor 3-2! It was a marathon match that lasted approximately 3.5 hours ending under the NHS lights. An awesome night for our team!

It’s been a crazy two weeks of weather issues, challenging matches and tournaments. Tonite was our senior night and our last regular season match for our JV team. Our JV team was not able to finish their matches tonite against Memorial when the rain hit and the varsity players moved their matches to indoor courts once again at Eastlake Tennis in Elkhart. However, special note ... our Northridge JV Tennis team ended up taking 5th place at the JV Invitational/JV Conference Tourney in Warsaw on Saturday with most of the team taking 3rd, 4th or 5th places in their respective positions out of the eight teams represented. Northridge placed 8th/last in 2018 so we are excited about the progress and improvement and look forward to a strong 2020 with these young ladies!
