The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) girls tennis team claimed their fifth consecutive state title in a rematch with North No. 1 Winchester High School 3-2 in the state Division 2 championship on Wednesday at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury. The match was rescheduled from Tuesday due to rain.
The Vineyard’s first singles Kelly Klaren won 6-0, 6-0, second singles Victoria Scott won 6-3, 6-0, and third singles Hannah Rabasca had the deciding match, winning 6-2, 3-6, 6-4. First doubles Molly Pogue and Chesca Potter lost 4-6, 4-6, and second doubles Alex Rego and Tessa Hammond lost 1-6, 2-6.
“I want to thank the girls for giving me the opportunity for being their coach this year,” Coach Chris Scott said in a phone call with The Times. “It was a huge privilege. I cannot say enough about their character, their commitment, and their toughness. They represent MVRHS absolutely with great pride. I don’t take this for granted. It’s a great feeling.”
