Girls varsity tennis takes part in a successful weekend


Homestead girls varsity tennis took part in Nicolet’s flighted Sweet 16 tennis tournament this weekend, among the states top tennis teams. The tournament contains matches for individual state including positions for one singles, two singles, one doubles, and two doubles. Each position plays every team, ending with one champion receiving a chance at individual state. Sasha Shapsis, senior, reflects on the past four years of being on Homestead’s four time reigning state champs and her goals for the rest of the season.

“I want to make it as far as I can in individual state,” Shapsis said. “This team has really taught me patience and teamwork.” 

Ellie Sprinkmann, sophomore, in her second year on varsity and she anticipates a season of success and fun. 

“I’m looking forward to spending time with my teammates and growing even closer,” Sprinkmann said. 

Sprinkmann had a successful weekend of being the number three single’s champion, which continues to drive her and her teammates overall goal.

“We hope to achieve our goal of competing at team state for the fourth year in a row and hopefully being the state champions again,” Sprinkmann said.

New to the varsity team this year, Tess Diamond, sophomore, aspires to be a part of the state championship team this year as well. 

“As long as we continue to practice hard and play as winners, I am confident the team can pull it off again for the four-peat,” Diamond said.
