The bleachers were packed for the Vineyard’s last home match of the season, especially on the doubles side, where senior doubles phenoms Kat Roberts and Lizzie Williamson had little trouble on their way to a double bagel (6-0, 6-0) victory. Coaches Nina Bramhall and Liz Roberts looked on proudly as they watched the pair hit their last volleys on the MVRHS courts.

“It’s a little bittersweet losing Kat and Lizzie,” said Ms. Bramhall. “It feels like the end of an era, but the girls put on a good show and made us all proud.”

Though the Vineyard won out in each match, the competition was fierce and each athlete had to up their game. The clearest example was in second doubles, where sophomores Molly Pogue and Chesca Potter traded sets with their opponents. A large crowd gathered to watch the action as they headed into a 10-point tiebreak. It was back and forth for a while, but a string of powerful Pogue serves and returns by Potter led the way to a 6-2, 4-6 (10-7) thriller.

Over in singles, sophomore Hannah Rabasca received the coveted award for the quickest Vineyard player to finish their match with the second double bagel of the day. Junior Victoria Scott followed up in straight sets 6-0, 6-2 and Kelly Klaren ended the round of singles with a 6-2, 6-1 performance as her father, Chilmark police chief Jonathan Klaren, proudly looked on.

“This was one of the team’s best matches overall,” said Ms. Bramhall. “As the level gets higher, they’re stepping up.”

The Vineyard will play next in the south section finals, now scheduled for Thursday, June 14 at 3:30 p.m. at Old Rochester against fifth-seeded Foxborough. Ms. Bramhall said the team has played so many post-season matches at Old Rochester that it feels like another home court.
