Brewer — After graduating six of its top seven players last year — and the seventh away for the start of April school vacation — the Belfast girls tennis team had a suddenly new look from a season ago on Thursday, April 11 to begin the high school regular season on the road against Brewer.

Despite the lack of varsity experience, the Lions held their own against the Witches, before they, ultimately, came up short, falling 3-2 on a beautiful, sunny afternoon at Brewer High School.

In doubles, Sarah Woods and Caitlin Maddocks lost to Grace Milan and Lauren Tardy, 3-6, 3-6; and Sophie Richdale and Olivia Matthews lost to Annie Faucher and Maria Lowe, 1-6, 4-6.
