Milton’s Girls’ Tennis Team Poised to Clinch Fourth ISL Title

by on Friday, April 14th, 2017

Milton Girls’ Varsity Tennis is known as one of the strongest teams on campus. Seeing as MAGVT won ISL’s for the past three years and New England’s for the past two, the team’s competitors have a reason to be afraid. Not only did the team go undefeated last year, but MAGVT flaunted its strength in winning 15-0 against Rivers, St. George’s, Middlesex, Lawrence, Governor’s, and BB&N. No fan could forget the team’s championship 5-3 win against Phillips Academy Andover in the NEPSAC Class A Finals last spring, in which dozens of fans stormed the courts to celebrate a back to back New England’s win.

This year, the girls — despite losing their #1 seed Maddie Dewire (‘16) who continues her career at Amherst College — are expecting another record year with the addition of three new players to the previous eight person roster. The newest “cubs” Lizzy Hall (IV), Pari Palandjian (IV), and Nina Subkhanberdina (II), join Charis Palandjian (II), Christine Flatley (II), Julia Lebovitz (I), Katherine McDonough (III), Mollie Ames (I), Natalie Wamester (II), Semi Oloko (I), and Te Palandjian (I). On the addition of new players and the biggest team of her high school career, veteran Natalie Wamester foresees another great year as she believes that the team’s ladder is “deep” and that “the chemistry has been working really well so far!” Natalie additionally notes that while they added three new players, she still gets the sense of a “small team dynamic,” and she truly feels that MAGVT is “more of a family than a team.” Nina Subkhanberdina is enjoying the beginning of her season so far, and she appreciates how everyone on the team “is really nice and supportive.” Like the majority of her teammates, Nina eagerly awaits her Andover match. Charis Palandjian, who will play alongside her sisters Te and Pari this year, “enjoys spending time with them on the court” and is excited to compete with both her sisters for the first time.

The team plans to start its season in the same fashion as previous years; having played at tournaments and clinics primarily at the Weymouth Club in the offseason, in season, the girls — with their strong ladder of players — will continue their team-oriented work ethic through challenge matches, intense fitness, and various drills. Upon starting her fourth and final tennis season, one of three senior captains, Te Palandjian “didn’t feel like there was much rust to shake off” considering that while some teammates play more than others, almost the entire team plays year round. She credits the team’s consistent success to the player’s’ “long term commitment to the sport from an early age,” as she notes that most of the team played in USTA tournaments growing up.

On the topic of the Andover Girls’ Tennis team, another infamously strong contender in New England’s, the girls are anticipating another challenging, but (hopefully) not too challenging matchup at home on May 10th. While the team has not lost to Andover for the past three years, Milton believes that Andover has a stronger team than last year. However, Te believes Milton’s team has a “mental edge against them” that will give them an upper-hand going into the season. Should both teams meet again at New England’s, Milton expects that the doubles matches, as always, will be crucial in getting the win.

To kick off their 2017 season, MAGVT beat Rivers this past Saturday and dominated St. George’s on Wednesday. They encourage fans to come out and show their support at 2:30 on the North Courts this Saturday against Brooks for the team’s first home game.

So, what should fans expect from MAGVT’s 20117 season? New faces, but the same dominance from Milton’s self-proclaimed “Lion’s Pride.”
