Alana Shuster, the "Comeback Kid"


Despite the absence of Moriah Burke, Magruder's number one singles player, her sister, Ariel Burke, was present and gave the tennis team the necessary strength to dominate Damascus by a score of 5-2. Great praise goes to freshman,Cassie Jenkins, who filled in for Moriah and played four singles for the first time in her tennis career. Significant in the win was the outstanding performance of Alana Shuster who played up at three singles. Alana won her first set but was forced to play a tiebreaker in the second. She was quickly down 6-0 in the tiebreaker and it looked like a third and decisive set would be required. Summoning all of her mental toughness ,tennis skills and physical ability, Alana fought back and won the tiebreaker 8-6. For this remarkable achievement, Alana well deserves the title of "The Comeback Kid"
