Deerfield picked up points at No. 1, No. 2 and No. 4 singles to edge Glenbrook South 10-8.
“We had some close matches,” Deerfield coach Edee Madsen said. “Some went our way, some didn’t.
It’s always competitive against Glenbrook South. It’s always tough.”
The Warriors were powerful in doubles, taking four of six matches, led by Katie Frankel and Ally Kolpas, who edged the Titans’ top-seeded duo of Mackenzie O’Brien and Brittany Balzano, 22-20, 21-18.
Deerfield was able to secure three-set victories at the No. 3 and No. 4 doubles positions to build a lead heading into singles play.
In singles play, the Warriors once again benefitted from strong production at the top of the lineup.
Cara Silverman, Gerri Soren and Frankel all won in straight sets in singles action for Deerfield, while O’Brien got a slight bit of revenge at No. 3 singles, by defeating Kolpas, 21-17, 21-11.
Madsen noted that her team is playing without its top singles player as well as another one of its top 10 singles players. She said that her No. 1 singles player, Marissa Levy, has been out since the end of March after rolling her ankle, while Erin Church is out with a concussion from bumping her head on a pole after writing her score down.
“We held our own pretty well,” Madsen said. “It’s hard when you lose your best player.”
