Tennis team evens record at 3-3

The Lady Lion tennis team posted a 4-1 victory over New Castle to move to 3-3 on the season.

“Tonight’s match felt a little like homecoming for us after beginning our season with five road trips. We had a couple of holes in our varsity line up to fill tonight and the kids we called on to fill the gaps responded very well and helped us get a dominate win. We’ll go with the same line up for our next match and I think the kids will expect a similar outcome,” Coach Heuer noted.

At No. 1 singles, Allison Wainwright won 6-1, 6-2. At No. 2 singles, Sarah Harpring fell 6-1, 6-2. At No. 3 singles, Haley Riddell won a 3-setter 7-5, 4-6, 6-3.

In doubles, the duo of Jill Yager and Katie Schroeder won 6-4, 6-1. The No. 2 team of Nici Martin and Larissa Dunn won 6-2, 6-4.

For the junior varsity, Abbey Whitaker won 8-3. Bridgette Welter lost 8-3. Courtney Hall won 8-0. Riko Itakura and Hall won 8-0. Maddy Kasey and Payton Brower won 8-0. Sarah Schombert and Natali Miller won 8-3.

Mt. Vernon tops Lady Lions

The Lady Lions dropped to 2-3 overall after suffering a 5-0 loss at Mt. Vernon (Fortville).

At No. 1 singles, Wainwright lost 6-1, 6-3. At No. 2 singles, Harpring fell 6-0, 6-1 and at No. 3 singles, Schroeder lost 6-1, 6-3.

At No. 1 doubles, Jill Yager and Casey Yager lost 6-3, 6-3. The No. 2 doubles team of Martin and Sarah Hershberger lost 6-2, 6-0.

“Our most competitive match came at No. 1 doubles spot where Jill and Casey played an entertaining match that was closer than the 6-3, 6-3 final score might indicate,” Coach Heuer noted.

In junior varsity action, Riddell lost one match 6-0 and a second match 6-4. Dunn lost 8-1 and won 8-1. Schombert won a close match 8-7 (7-5). Miller posted an 8-6 victory. Emilee Rogers fell 6-1. Hall won 6-0. Itakura won 8-0 in singles and teamed with Hall in doubles and the duo fell 8-0. Welter and Whitaker lost 8-4. Kasey and Brower won 8-4.
