In a close match with Ethel Walker School at their new home facility, Porter's lost two five game decisions at no. 7 and no. 2. That was enough to put Walkers over the top. Porters scored wins by Annie Buenaventura at 3, Riti Sharma at 4, and Sam Houle at 1. A good win for all against the Canterbury School. The Green return to action tonight in the first round of the 2017 High School Nationals at Choate. They play at 7pm versus Conestoga.
The only win of the day came at the no. 1 position from Sam Houle '17. Porter's was missing no. 2 Talia Welker '19 from the line-up, who was ill. The Green have a packed week ahead of them with Ethel Walker and Canterbury at Ethel Walker on Wednesday, and their first match of High School Nationals on Friday at 3pm at Choate.
