Ellie Kelly’s tennis season closes at sectional tournament
space
With a return trip to Green Bay’s Four Seasons Tennis Club Wednesday for WIAA Girls Tennis Sectional, Red Robins’ Ellie Kelly faced the day with hopes of reaching the state tournament.

Joining her was a support team made up of several of the members of the girls varsity squad along with coach Aimee Hein.

I'm really proud of Ellie Kelly this season, Coach Hein stated. She has really blossomed as a player with a lot of potential. She has an energy on the court that keeps her fighting in any situation.

Kelly’s first match in the No. 3 singles flight in the Division 1 sectional comprised of 17 schools was against Jenna Piaskowki from Manitowoc Lincoln. Piaskowski made the game look effortless, as she moved Kelly around the court with precision.

Eventually that and perhaps some nerves were too much for Kelly to overcome, and she was defeated 6-0, 6-0. Piaskowki then moved on to the championship match where she easily won the title.

After almost five hours of waiting, Kelly moved on to a match that would determine third place in her flight, Ally Haefke from Sheboygan North was next on Kelly’s itinerary.

Sophomore, Ellie Kelly, played aggressively, taking chances at the net and speeding up the pace. Despite some well executed plans, the ball didn't quite fall into place at the right moments.

After losing the first set, Kelly made some adjustments, capitalizing on her opponent's weaknesses by pulling her up to the net. Although Kelly managed to take a couple games, the adjustment unfortunately came a bit too late.

Kelly ended up losing despite a fantastic season as Antigo’s No. 3 singles player and an impressive post-season as well.

The best part of Ellie Kelly, Hein noted, is that she's only a sophomore; we have two more years to capitalize on her talent. 

As the girls tennis season comes to a close, I reflect on the hard work the girls have put in that led to such a monumental season for the program, the coach added. I am so proud of all they have accomplished and sad to see it come to an end. I can't wait to see what great things are to come in the future seasons.
