With the boys match rained out, it was up to the Belfast girls tennis team to secure a high school court win for its school as it faced the unenviable task of lining up against mighty Waterville on Wednesday, May 10.

The Lion girls could not compete with the Purple Panthers — annual regional and state championship contenders — as the visitors prowled to a 5-0 win.

The match between the Lion and Purple Panther boys in Belfast was rained out, with no makeup date scheduled, said coach Keith Holland.

The individual results from the girls match, with Belfast players listed first, were: In singles, Rayahna Luther lost to Sammi Salter, 0-6, 0-6; Julia Cerone lost to Maggie Brock, 0-6, 2-6; and Alexia Sweet lost to Clio Bazakas, 1-6, 6-3, 2-6.

In doubles, Kristina Walker and Starr Warner lost to Sofie Weston and Mackenzie St. Pierre, 0-6, 0-6; and Olivia LaRouche and Clarisse Stradtman lost to Nora Greene and Lauren Smith, 0-6, 1-6.

In the Maine Principals' Association Heal Point Standings for Class B North, Belfast (1-3, 2.6389 points) is 13th, while Camden Hills of Rockport (7-0, 66.8056 points) is first in the 16-team region. The top 11 teams qualify for the playoffs.
