MORRISTOWN, NJ - There’s a very long road ahead—8 months of almost non-stop’s worth, to be exact—but by virtue of its girls tennis team, the 2016-17 Morristown High athletic year is off to a good start.
 
The Colonial netters opened up its season on Wednesday afternoon with a close, 3-2 victory over Group I power New Providence (0-1) at the Frelinghuysen Middle School courts.
 
The decisive match ultimately came at first singles, where Morristown senior Steffi Elling needed three sets to defeat her New Providence counterpart, Katherine Ge, 7-6 (7-1), 3-6, 6-1. That match took nearly three hours to complete.
 
 
The first match of the day to finish came at third singles, when Morristown’s Megan Acampora—a senior that also plays on the MHS softball team—swept away New Prov’s Ana Trajanovic, 6-1, 6-3.
 
Morristown’s other victory in the match came in the third singles battle, where Isabelle Berzins notched a 6-4, 6-3 victory over the Pioneers’ Stephanie Maluso in a hard fought match.
 
The doubles teams for Morristown (1-0) did not quite have as successful a debut. The first doubles pair of Isabella Galankin and Maddie Siegel dropped a 6-3, 6-3 decision to the New Providence tandem of Caroline Maglaras and Mary Riccio. Siegel is a freshman that made Morristown’s varsity lineup, and is the only Class of 2020 player on the squad.
 
At second doubles, senior Eva Endahl and sophomore Lauren Blaustein came up short in their match vs. Lauren Kang and Ashima Agarwal of the visitors to round out the match.
