Squad opens with Scrimmage at Plattsburgh

After only 4 days of practice, we thought we'd see where we were against outside competition. We headed over to Plattsburgh, who was 1-4 at the time. It was a successful outing, although we didn't play a real match, just a series of several games. It was informal enough to allow us to stop and explain something on court if we wanted, but formal enough to hopefully get the pre-season jitters out!?! We had strong showings from our returners, and some impressive input from our freshmen class of Ellen Dahlberg, Elissa Goeke, Jane Handel, and Caroline Cordle. I think we're all optimistic about our upcoming season, and will be anxious to head down to Wellesley this weekend where we'll open our season for real. Our first test will be against Amherst on Friday night, and then both Eastern Connecticut and Wellesley on Saturday.
