The junior dropped the first set 3-6 before rebounding to win the second set 6-3 and a third-set tiebreaker 10-8. “It was nerve racking, she’s a really good player overall.

Sheth, who has won all of her matches, made states during her freshman year and is happy to be experiencing matches again with her teammates, “I am so happy to be on the court, even if it’s a shortened season I’m just happy to be out here. It’s nice to be out here supporting each other and I’m happy we have that bond together. We just want to win for the team and for (head coach Mike) Dudis.
