After capturing the senior girls doubles crown in Sudbury with older sister Bryanne last April, before settling for bronze at NOSSA, Collège Notre-Dame senior Kalie Rheault has shifted her focus for 2017.

“This year, I’m trying to get to OFSAA for singles,” said Rheault, who finished third in this category on Saturday, behind the North Bay tandem of Perry and Sinicrope. “I’m training more with the club this year, practicing and training at home.”

Given that much of her time, over the past few years, has been spent mastering the doubles game, Rheault is playing catch-up to some of the frontrunners, switching now to the finer nuances of singles play.

“I find I need to focus more on my serve,” she said. “In doubles play, it’s more of a short serve. Also, my drop shots, and I have to be more active, moving my feet, as you have to cover the whole court.”

As for the final tournament before the road to OFSAA begins in earnest, Rheault was thankful for one last chance to handicap the field, with opening round SDSSAA play kicking off on Thursday. “I wanted to see who my competition would be for next week,” she said.

“There is a girl from Lasalle, Kayleigh Gauthier, and a girl from Lo-Ellen (Gracen Lacko).” Organizers will aim to whittle things down to the final four in the majority of the 15 categories later this week (midget play may wrap up entirely on Thursday), with semi-finals and finals in both junior and senior divisions slated for Saturday (April 8th) at St Benedict.
