Simsbury, CT 06070
After snowflakes and 30s in Chestnut Hill last night, GVT traveled to Ethel Walker, Simsbury today where they were greeted by sunny skies and 60 degrees, and an always game opponent. The Lady Knights succumbed 7-0 at Ethel Walker, but showed improvement in point play and did better in the unforced errors department.
Shuri Okada, playing at #4 Singles, was our standout today, recovering from a lopsided 1st set to nearly steal a hard-fought 2nd set and battled many deuces in the key game at 4-5.
