won her match 7-5, 6-3. No.2 player Nanette Duxin, Gallovits’ doubles
partner, won her match impressively, 6-0, 6-2.

game all day. Jessica Balbuena, Marina Raic, and Kia Asberg all won their
matches 6-0, 6-0. The other Seminole victory came from junior Ali Weber at
the No.3 spot.

first kid’s day of the season. There will be free popcorn and drinks, and
many prizes to give away. Due to possible weather conditions the men’s team
has moved their match to 11:00am as well. So tommorrow morning the women’s
and men’s team are in action at 11:00am, the women play against Illinois
