The Jaguar tennis team traveled to Solon for an NEOTA Division B match today. The Comets came away with a 4-1 victory on their home courts at the Solon Community Park. Leading the way for SJA was Kerrigan Ponsart who picked up her 10th win of the season with a 6-3, 6-4 victory at third singles. Abby Weaver played a strong first set in a 7-6, 6-1 loss at second singles. The doubles combo of Julie Lorincz and Melissa Martin dropped a very competitive 6-1, 6-4 battle to the Solon duo of Maggie Yang and Alexis Ratner. Both Yang and Ratner were a match away from state last year in singles. The Jags team led for most of the second set before Solon pulled out a couple of long deuce games to clinch the match. The loss drops the Jags to 9-3 on the season and 2-3 in NEOTA Division B play.
