Aspen girls tennis falls to Glenwood
ASPEN It’ doesn’t matter whether they play at No. 2 or No. 3 doubles – Aspen junior Hana Maclean and sophomore Georgia Lipkin are unbeatable.
At least thus far this season, after the pair dusted off Glenwood Springs’ No. 2 doubles team on Thursday at the Maroon Creek Club for their sixth win in as many matches.”They’re having a phenomenal season,” Skiers coach David Rogers said after his team fell to its downvalley rival, four matches to three.
Aspen got wins from its top two singles players – Whitney Hubbell and Jordan Meyer – but couldn’t pull out the team win after its No. 4 doubles team fell in the final match.”Whitney has so much potential,” Rogers said. “Jordan had a great win today.”
The win dropped Aspen to 3-3 overall on the season. Led by Maclean and Lipkin, the Skiers dominated visiting Hotchkiss at home on Saturday, winning all seven matches.After a full schedule during the last three weeks, the Skiers now have some time off. Aspen’s next scheduled dual is April 8 against rival Roaring Fork, in Carbondale. Aspen then hosts Paonia on April 22 and travels to Vail Moutain School on April 24 before heading off to regionals at the beginning of May.
Skiers players were told that Aspen High School hockey isn’t playing varsity for the 2022-23 season. Reasons included a lack of seniors and consternation over experience.
