Westwood’s first-doubles pair of senior captain Delaney Griffiths and freshman Emma Falkowski won their match in straight sets (6-2, 6-0). Meanwhile, juniors Danielle Sutrich and Juliana Mikesell dominated their way to a 6-0, 6-0 victory in their doubles match to give Westwood a 2-0 overall lead against the Hillers.

Gabby Heaney-Secord gave the lady-Wolverines the overall victory by battling her way to a 6-2, 6-4 victory in her singles match.

Senior captains Lauren Klaff and Delaney Griffiths provided excellent leadership throughout the entire season, while head coach Martha Laughna guided the ship by teaching her players the importance of hard work and discipline. Congrats to the lady-Wolverines on an incredible season and for their run to a conference title.
