“I’m extremely proud of my girls,” Chambersburg coach Niko Mucci said. “This was our fourth win in the last five matches. And it’s my first win over Carlisle (boys or girls) since I’ve been coaching.”

The No. 1 doubles team of Reese Miller and Ashlee Barrett also lost the first set (6-4) against the Herd’s Emily Coombs and Elena Rasmussen, but rallied to take the next two, 6-2 and 7-6.

Mucci said, “We celebrated Senior Night and my seniors delivered, with both Sarah and Ashlee getting wins.”
