TOWAMENCIN- A veteran CB West squad was just too much for the young Maidens on the tennis court Friday afternoon, as the Bucks cruised to a 5-2 victory.

Despite a strong effort from their doubles team, the Maidens dropped all the singles matches to fall to 3-2 for the season and 2-2 in the conference. The doubles teams stepped up, taking two out of four matches, but their effort was not enough to overturn the game.
“In my opinion, we have nothing to be ashamed about,” said Coach Maxwell, “we are a very young team, and CB West has tons of seasoned veterans. We really gave our all against one of the toughest teams in the conference. This does not shake our confidence.”


Maxwell, the first-year coach, was not particularly worried about the score line. She believes is all about building a team and creating a good atmosphere.
“I want all of my players to cheer for each other on the sideline,” commented Maxwell, “I don’t think they are used to that, but I’m teaching good sportsmanship and attitude. I am looking forward to creating an atmosphere for future teams to follow, so all our underclassmen can carry this on.”


The team cohesion was already evident, as every single player waited until all the matches were done, cheering and complimenting their teammates.
The Maidens team will next travel to Souderton on Thursday, as they continue their conference schedule.
