Another great match up today in girls tennis as Godinez hosted Westminster. The Grizzlies have battled with injuries to its top players this season. Despite not having its #1 singles player in the starting lineup the Grizzlies played strong. The Grizzlies kept it really close down only 1 in the first round with a score of 2-3, and looked like they would tie it with the last set of the first round, but lost a close one to fall down 2-4. The second round was equally tight again, with Westminster increasing its lead to 6-2 before the Grizzlies closed the deficit with the help of singles player Maria Nieto. Doubles team of Elaine Nguyen and Melissa Peinado helped lead a come back to cut Westminster’s lead to 7-5. The last round was equally competitive but westminster just kept winning close sets to shut down Godinez’ comeback. Despite coming back from injury, senior Melissa Peinado, played through pain. Her doubles team went undefeated on the day.
