BINGHAMTON – With the entire crowd anxiously awaiting the outcome of the final match – and the team score tied at 3-3 – it was Norwich’s Ava Granquist who secured the decisive fourth point.
Ava defeated Katie Mach of Chenango Valley, at 6-4, 7-5 in the fourth singles spot.
“It was a great match, we ended up squeezing it out 4-3,” said Norwich head coach John Stewart. “She (Ava) won 6-4 first set, then she was up 4-3 in the second. At 5-5 she was up 30-Love, was serving the next point and the girl rolled her ankle. She (Ava) went up 40-Love and basically won that game, then won the next to close her out.”
Ava was able to hold on for the wild 7-5 win over Mach, earning Norwich their first win of the 2017 season – a league win nonetheless.
