The Recorder – HS Roundup: Mohawk Trail girls’ tennis pulls victory out of Turners (PHOTO)

Wednesday was a great time for Mohawk Trails Avery Dupree to get his first win of the season.

Dupree took on Turners Falls’ Steph Peterson in the No. 1 single and won with a 6-0, 6-0 victory, which helped lead the Warriors to a 3-2 girls victory in the Powertown tennis team.

“The fight went well,” Dupree said. “I kept my focus throughout. It was a beautiful day. It was windy, which made serving difficult, but I overcame it.”

The senior was one of three Mohawk Trail players to win Wednesday as the Warriors swept all three singles matches.

For Dupree, she is hoping for a big year in her final tennis season.

“I’m really looking forward to my senior season,” Dupree said. “I’ve been building up to it for a long time and I’m super excited to play No. 1 singles again. I’m hoping for an 80 percent victory season. I do not want to lose too much. I’ve lost enough, this is my year. ”

Paige King came away with a 6-2, 6-0 victory in No. 2 singles against Thunder Haley Randall, and at No. 3 singles, Palmer King won a 6-1, 6-0 triumph over Turners’ Abbi Holloway.

Dupree has been impressed with how her Mohawk Trail team looks so far this season.

“They’re fine,” Dupree said. “We have a lot of new kids this season and everyone is super excited to get out and play. They show interest, they work hard and it shows.”

For Holloway, it has been about getting more reps in the fighting action, with Wednesday’s competition being only the second of the season for the Thunder.

“The season has been good,” Holloway said. “I want to work on my backhand. It may improve a little bit. I’m working on some other things, but it’s something I hope to get better at by the end of the season. Everyone is getting back on track. Everyone feeling really good, just getting the groove back. ”

Turners won both doubles, with Maddy Lilly and Maria LaBelle winning a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Warriors Lauren Lovett and Dakoda Chasse by No. 1 doubles, and Tatianna Carr and Jill Reynolds taking over the Mohawk Trail’s Dakota Cusumano and Sam Missoula 6- 0, 6-1 on No. 2.

Despite the loss, Chasse – an eighth grader – feels she is getting better and enjoys playing doubles.

“My skills are the same, but I learn a lot,” Chasse said. “Everyone is supportive and helpful. I’ve only played doubles. I like working as a team and strategizing and helping each other.”
