Manchester High School’s girls tennis team came together Tuesday afternoon to celebrate senior night.

Seniors Madeline Bockus, Natalie Dahl, Dasia Jones, Myhang Ly, Meredith Hartnett, Octka Bowen, Anne Congleton, and Veronica Alvarez were honored by the underclassmen through gifts and posters hanging around the court. On senior night, the girls had 6-1 win against East Hartford.

Their record this year was 8-8, and if the girls beat Bloomfield — which Dasia Jones describes as “doable”—  the Varsity team will qualify for CIAC State Tournament, which will take place this Saturday. The team hasn’t made States in a while, and this is quite an accomplishment for the girls.

Dasia Jones describes the improvement of the team as “crazy … we started hitting over the summer a lot and just running drills and coaches have been surprised at how we totally changed our team around this year.”

Best of luck to the girls as they play Bloomfield and hopefully advance on to States!
