By Carson Tigges, Ledger sports editor | May 04, 2011

Fairfield’s No. 1 Ena Alcan was absent Tuesday, and Maharishi School took advantage with close wins up and down the lineup to post a 7-2 victory.

Haylee Gilpin stepped in to play No. 1 singles for the Trojans, but couldn’t keep up with Minna Mohammadi, who kept her strong season going winning 10-1. Sophia Medvedeva, Pearl Sawhney, Camille Goodale and Paavani Kar also won for MSAE while Dalls Grijalva duked out a 10-8 singles victory for Fairfield at No. 6.

Grijalva also picked up a doubles win alongside Alex Higdon thanks to an 11-10 (7-1) tiebreaker victory.

Next up for Fairfield is a home match against Keokuk Tuesday, while MSAE will host Albia and Holy Trinity Saturday.
