Lowell girls endure tough times on court

The blue Lowell tennis coach Bonnie Wall is seeing is not from the skies above, that blue has been covered by clouds.

Wall and her Red Arrow girls’ tennis team has been covered in a blue funk directly related to the tough times they’ve been experiencing on the court.

Lowell was bounced by Mona Shores, Northview and Portland by identical scores of 7-1. The one point in each of those matches was served up by its top-seeded player, Kelly Trapp.

The Red Arrows lost later to Jenison 6-2 with Trapp and its number one doubles team of Kelsey Mankel and Rachdel Stougaard earning wins.

Trapp finished second at the Northview Quad, losing to Catholic Central phenom Sidney Liggins. Lowell was third overall.

“Losing is depressing. We’d better toughen up and practice and play hard,” Wall concluded.
