The Zionsville girls tennis team saw a successful season come to an end on May 28, falling to No. 5 Park Tudor 4-1.
The Eagles finished their season 15-6.
"We competed extremely hard," Zionsville head coach Matt Moore said. "I told the girls after the match that there is nothing to be ashamed of when you go out there and compete hard against a top program like Park Tudor. We still have room to improve. We have to continue to work hard and elevate our games to where we are."
Of the six Zionsville losses, four came against top-10 teams and another came against a top-20 team.
Moore said that in order to start beating these teams, the work has to be done outside of the high school season.
"A lot of it is getting more experience in the off-season," Moore said. "We have to play more and play in more USTA events. We have some girls that are newer to the sport and it is a big learning curve to catch up. But, just like every season, we have maximized our potential. Their are limits on the girls we have. We aren't quite as large as a Carmel or Hamilton Southeastern and we aren't a private school like Cathedral or Park Tudor where it is easier to get girls to come and play. Our girls always do a fantastic job."
The Eagles lone win came at No. 3 singles, where Natasha Wujek defeated Noelle Enkema 6-4, 6-0.
At No. 1 singles Candice Park lost to Brigitte Hodge 6-3, 6-0. At No. 2 singles, Silvie Miarkova lost to Abby Sogard 6-0, 6-2.
