Campisi finally gains MCT singles title

RANDOLPH _ Villa Walsh's Jamie Campisi typically thrives under pressure. So, when Campisi's game began coming apart late in the second set of the Morris County Tournament final, Campisi figured she'd dig deep, right herself and be OK.

Mendham threepeats in MCT

RANDOLPH _ Veronika Fojtu will never forget how flattered she was when Hayley Keith chose her to be her doubles partner for Mendham. Fojtu was playing second doubles for the junior varsity in the summer of 2011 when Keith asked her to join her. The duo clicked immediately, winning second doubles at the Morris County Tournament.

MCT Tennis gets underway

RANDOLPH _ For the last 24 months, the only thing that has been on Villa Walsh senior Jamie Campisi's mind has been redemption. As a sophomore, she raced out to a 20-5 record and took the top seed in the Morris County Tournament.

MCT Tennis seedings announced

MORRISTOWN _ Two of Montville's singles players, Kirstin Godau and Kaitlin Sanzone, received top seeds when the seeding was held for the Morris County Tennis Tournament on Tuesday, Sept. 25. Jillian Garfunkel and Joanna Fass, the Mustangs' second doubles' team, also received a No. 1 seed.

Mendham has a stellar cast

MENDHAM _ After dropping only one game in the first set, Mendham first singles player Lauren Hassell continued to dominate, going up 5-1 in the second set. Then, just like that, Hassell's game began to unravel. The play of Chatham sophomore Emily Sroczynski had a lot to do with it, as she slugged winner after winner and Hassell briefly lost her rhythm.

Herila, Vikings beat Madison

MORRISTOWN _ Katherine Herila's ascent from second doubles on junior varsity to second singles on varsity occurred not over the course of several years but within a span of two weeks. Well aware that all of the positions were open, Herila simply toiled in preseason challenge matches and landed the prime spot right behind Villa Walsh's veteran No. 1 singles player, Jamie Campisi.

Montville loaded, optimistic

MONTVILLE _ It is not uncommon for Kirstin Godau to let herself into Kaitlin Sanzone's house. Sanzone, too, goes into Godau's house avoiding the typical methods of entry - ringing the doorbell or knocking on the door.

Red Hawks trimmed in sectional final

LIVINGSTON _ Parsippany tennis coach Steve McCarthy has tinkered with his doubles combinations for much of the season. On Monday, the Red Hawks played their 14th match and McCarthy still was seeking the right pairings.

Montville lands spot in sectional final

MONTVILLE _ The end to the match was in close sight, a mere game away. Jillian Garfunkel and Joanna Fass, Montville's first doubles team, cruised through the opening set and went up 5-2 in the second set against Sparta.
