Pioneers Hand Fairfield First Loss in Seven Meets

From the Fairfield Ledger--

The Maharishi School girls’ tennis team looked at home on the Fairfield Middle School courts Tuesday, posting its third team sweep of the season with a win over Fairfield.

Led by commanding wins at the top of the lineup, the Pioneers swept both singles and doubles matches to take a 9-0 victory. The MSAE victory handed Fairfield its first home loss of the season as well as its first in seven meets.

Minna Mohammadi and Katya Sheridan needed very little time to pick up wins at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively. The two Pioneers won 10-0 in each match before teaming up for a 10-0 win at No. 1 doubles.

MSAE’s Sophia Medvedeva posted a 10-1 victory at No. 3 singles, while No. 4 Pearl Sawhney rallied for a hard fought 10-8 win over Fairfield’s Megan Palmer. Other singles victories came from Dia Huggins at No. 5 (10-2) and Alina Knight at No. 6 (10-7).

Medvedeva and Sawhney picked up a 10-2 victory at No. 2 doubles, while the No. 3 Pioneer duo of Huggins and Knight won 10-1.

In JV action, MSAE’s Jacqueline Leete won 8-6 at No. 7 singles and the Pioneers’ Flower Shreck posted an 8-2 victory at No. 8. Shreck and Hifza Akbar were victorious at No. 4 doubles, as well.

Fairfield (8-2) returns to the court Thursday at Keokuk. Meanwhile, the Pioneers (5-0) will stay in Fairfield for a matchup against West Burlington/Notre Dame Thursday.
