|The Maharishi School girls tennis team lost 5-2 against
Camanche in the Class 1-A regional championship match at Muscatine
Wednesday afternoon. The two wins came in singles from Michelle Punj at
number one and Melodia Morales in the six spot. Perennial power Camanche
took two through four singles and then got the clinching fifth victory at
number two doubles. The Pioneers end the dual meet season with an
outstanding record of 13 and 1.
Mahrishi School will have Punj competing next week as the top seed in the
Class 1-A state singles tennis tournament after she finished third last
year. Coral and Melodia Morales qualified as regional champions for the
Class 1-A state doubles tennis tournament next week in Des Moines. They
will be joined by the Pioneers Joy Grant and Erin Levi as the second place
doubles team from the region. This will be their third straight appearance
in the state competition.
Congratulations on a great season and good luck to the girls playing next
