TRITON 3, PENTUCKET 2

It was reported on Wednesday that Triton’s Grace Williams and Laurel White are junior varsity players that moved up to the varsity level during school vacation. In actuality, Williams and White are both varsity players who moved from doubles to singles to accommodate for missing singles players. Williams won second singles, while White won third singles. Abbey Killam and Rachel Mahoney moved from JV to varsity to fill the void in second doubles. The Vikings are now 5-1 on the season, sit atop the CAL’s Kinney Division and will look to continue their winning streak on Monday afternoon at Lynnfield.
