Irish girls better than advertised
By Robert Przybylo
If it appears I’ve gone gaga over the McGuinness girls tennis team, umm, I’m sorry?? There’s a fine line between admiring greatness and becoming a cheerleader. I don’t think I crossed it while others seem to differ.
Anyway, it was a great way to close out the girls tennis season. McGuinness ends at 122-0 and losing 14 games in 16 matches without losing a set.
Other random thoughts…
Man, I really felt for Edmond North’s Rachel Mitcham. The sophomore was on the court at 11 a.m. Saturday. She got off the court for good at just past 7 p.m. Two matches that took more than six hours. Add in another hour and a half for lunch and warming up, but it’s still a marathon day.
In the end, she lost to Putnam North’s Cassie Carver in three sets. The Panthers senior has admittedly lost focus and appeared to have thrown away her shot. Up 3-0 in the first set, she lost 6-4. She bounced back and won 6-4 in the next two sets for the title.
That brings me to my biggest dilemma for the All-City team. Peta Lancaster of McGuinness is a lock, but who is the second No. 1 singles player, Carver or Heritage Hall’s Julie Labarthe??
Labarthe lost to Lancaster in the finals, but umm, who wouldn’t have?? Labarthe defeated Carver in an earlier matchup this year. Like I said, it’s The Boneman’s Conundrum.
