Last time Fallston and Patterson Mill went head-to-head, the Cougars lost 5-6 so this was a much-anticipated match. “We love playing Patterson Mill because they’re always good competition,” said senior Lindsey Dettloff. 

The fence around the court was beautifully decorated with tennis themed balloons, tennis ball lettering, and a yard sign spelling out ‘Senior Night 2024’. After speeches and introducing each of the matches opponents to each other, the seniors were off, determined to walk away with a win for Fallston. 

Camryn Barrett and Meghan Perez played doubles against Patterson Mill, winning both sets, 7-5 and 6-4. Barrett and Perez came from behind in both sets, demonstrating their never-give-up attitudes. Doubles spend a lot of time practicing together, gaining communication and coordination skills. 

We played together all last year,” said Perez. “We have gotten pretty good on the court.” 


Tanner Boyd also had an incredible match, winning easily with 6-1 each set against Patterson Mill. 

Ryan Blair and Colby Resh also swept the floor, winning 6-3, 6-1. Blair and Resh have played doubles together for as long as they have been on the team, working strongly together. Blair adds to this by saying, “My favorite memory from tennis is when Colby and I beat Patterson Mill our sophomore year in UCBAC.” 

This was Senior Skylar Brown’s first year, playing doubles with Senior Courtney Robinson. For multiple seniors this was their first year playing tennis competitively. “I went into this season with the mindset that even though I wasn’t going to be the best, I was going to learn everything I could and enjoy the process,” said Brown.   

With the help from sophomore Gwen Karantonis and junior Gordon Lefkowitz winning their matches, Fallston pulled through to give the seniors a win on senior night. Great job to Karantonis for winning 6-4 in both sets and Lefkowitz for winning 6-2 in both sets.  

With this season being the last sports season in the seniors’ high school careers, it was much more sentimental at the end of the match. Dettloff agrees by saying, “It’s always so fun to just eat snacks and chill out with the team.” Perez adds to this by saying, “I will mainly miss our silly practices and spending time together at the matches.”

Each of the seniors on the team has left an incredible mark on Fallston and will be missed as they continue to college. Great match and good luck!
