Lady Kingsmen girls tennis team unbeaten

There is something special going on in the Christian Heritage School of Trumbull’s athletic program this spring.

A group of girls have quietly racked up an undefeated season, with only a few matches to go on this weather shortened season.

CHS’s girls varsity tennis team is 7-0 after defeating league stalwart Watkinson School for the second time in three days. The Lady Kingsmen have already avenged last year’s loss in the Housatonic Valley Athletic League Championship, as they knocked off the Forman School in Litchfield.

CHS is led by Cathy Sanner and Isabella Christian at the top two singles and the top doubles pairing.

Sanner, at first singles, was handed her first singles loss of the season this past Saturday against Watkinson.

Christian, a 9th grader, holds down the fort at second singles and has run her record to an impressive 14-0 this season. Her singles record is 7-0 and her doubles record is 7-0 as well.

The tandem leads by example and quickly deflects the praise to their teammates and the hard work they have put in over the last couple months.

The season began in late March with a spring training trip down to Orlando (Fla.), where the team was able to train for a few days and actually be outside on courts.

Once they returned, it was a few weeks before they were even able to get outside for their first match due to the weather.

The Lady Kingsmen are first in the league with three matches remaining, including the return trip with Forman, which will be another big match for the girls on Thursday.
