Collegiate ends St. Stephen’s playoff aspirations


After advancing to the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association semifinals, the St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes Saints fell handily to Collegiate.

The Friday matchup brought to close a season where the Saints went 11-4 on the tennis court, enjoying an Independent Schools League title and a run in the state championship tournament. The Saints, coming off of a 6-3 win against Potomac in the opening round of the playoffs, later fell 6-3 to Collegiate.

Still, the Saints have reason to celebrate. Lizzie Stewart, a sophomore, clinched the ISL title for the Saints with a win against Holton-Arms’ Lilly Lynham in singles on October 31.
