The baseball team wasn’t the only squad to start the season against Nantucket, however, they were the only ones to beat them.

The girls were able to right the ship in their next match-up as they defeated Monomoy 10-9 on the Cape on Tuesday. The Vineyarders jumped out to an early lead and held on for the win despite the Sharks making it close at the end. Ali Dyke netted a hat trick while Charlotte Scott and Lizzy Chvatal scored two goals each. Sylvi Carroll, Brooke Ward and Annabelle Metell each netted a goal as well.

On Thursday, the girls were scheduled to play D-Y, and on Saturday they take on Boston Latin Academy at home. Start time is 12:30 p.m.

Building off a successful indoor track season, the Vineyarders are looking forward to moving their talents outside and into the fresh air. They opened the season Monday with Monomoy and have a home meet scheduled for Friday versus D-Y beginning at 3 p.m.
