Lincoln claims Rushville Invite title

The Lion tennis team hosted Cambridge City Lincoln, South Dearborn and Union County in a 4-team invitational Saturday.

Lincoln won the team title by going 3-0 on the day. South Dearborn finished 2-1 with Union County 1-2 and Rushville 0-3.

Lincoln also swept the individual medals on the day.

“Today was not a good showing for the Lions. Our lack of experience overall is chipping away at our willingness to go out and compete with confidence that our effort is second to none. Ours is a team sport but matches are played out individually and each of our kids has to perform well for the team to enjoy any success,” Coach Holly Heuer said. “Two of our three losses today were against teams that we match up well with yet we lost them both 3-2. We won’t accept that we lack the heart to prevail in the close ones. This sport requires steely determination and a healthy appetite for competition to do well and we need to look within ourselves and bring the most out of what we have to offer.”

Rushville fell to Cambridge City Lincoln 5-0, South Dearborn 3-2 and Union County 3-2.

Will Hogsett went 2-1 on the day at No. 3 singles with wins over South Dearborn and Union County.

Paul Hershberger had a win over South Dearborn.

The No. 2 doubles team of Adam Martin and Chase Hamilton picked up a win over Union County.

Lions fall to New Castle

Rushville was knocked off 5-0 by New Castle in tennis action.

“We are getting some uneven performances from our kids match to match. We need to work harder to bring our best effort to each match. It’s easy to get distracted and lose our concentration and focus when we aren’t playing well. When that happens, the roof caves in,” Coach Holly Heuer said. “Once again Paul Hershberger playing at No. 2 singles for the Lions had our most competitive match. He pushed his match to a third set again, but could not get over the hump to get the win.”

Jake Fowler lost at No. 1 singles 6-2, 6-1 to Joe McIntosh. At No. 2 singles, Hershberger lost 6-0, 4-6, 6-2 to Dusty Vincent. At No. 3 singles, Will Hogsett fell 7-5, 6-2 to Dustin Gray.

At No. 1 doubles, Brandon Slaton and Michael St. John were defeated 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 by Jake Nicholson and Dylan Clark. At No. 2 doubles, Andrew Rice and Adam Martin lost 6-0, 6-1 to Josiah Sledd and Cayden Smekens.

In junior varsity singles, Chase Hamilton won 8-7 (10-8) over Evan Thurman.
