Anjali Daulat’s steady hand lifts Meadows
On a roster overflowing with freshmen and sophomores, Anjali Daulat more than stands out.
The lone senior on The Meadows girls tennis team, Daulat was tasked with leading a squad that lost four big contributors from last year’s Division I-A state championship team.
Daulat went 3-0 in singles to help the Mustangs to a 12-6 win over Faith Lutheran in the Division I-A final Friday at Darling Tennis Center.
“This is amazing, just the fact that we lost four starting seniors, and now we’re state champions again. It’s just unbelievable,” Daulat said. “It’s a great way to end my senior year.”
Shalini Shah and Shayley Shimkus went 3-0 in doubles, and Abbigail Klein and Anuja Daulat each went 2-1 in singles for The Meadows (18-1), which also got a 2-1 effort in doubles from Ava Frazier and Samantha Gondy.
Chaitanya Ingle and Marcus Pasimio were 2-0 in doubles for Clark, which got at least one point in all six lineup slots.
