RUSHVILLE — The Lady Lions played host to Richmond at the Richard Bradley Tennis Center. The Lady Red Devils defeated the Lady Lions 5-0 in varsity action. Rushville is now 4-10 on the season.

At No. 1 singles, Allison Wainwright fell to Peyton Young 6-2, 6-2. At No. 2 singles, Rosella Troyer lost 6-2, 6-0 to Katy Robinson. Sarah Harpring lost 6-0, 6-2 to Kaitlin Kramer at No. 3 singles.

The junior varsity Lady Lions won all four of their matches.

“We’re going to hand it to our JV kids tonight. They are playing with enthusiasm and with something to prove and it shows in their match scores. Once again we looked to them for our victories,” Coach Heuer noted.

Haley Riddell won 8-3. Katie Schroeder and Breanna Ison won 8-5. Sarah Hershberger and Abbey Whitaker won 8-2. Bridgette Welter and Sarah Schombert won 8-4.

Delta tops Rushville

On the road at Delta, a very strong Lady Eagles team defeated the Lady Lions 5-0 in varsity action to drop the Lady Lions to 0-5 in the HHC.

Wainwright lost 6-0, 6-1 to Madison Ashman at No. 1 singles. Troyer lost 6-1, 6-0 to Ashley Loffer. At No. 3 singles, Harpring lost 6-0, 6-0 to Maggie Thompson.

In doubles, the No. 1 duo of Jill Yager and Casey Yager lost 6-0, 6-0 to Marissa Morris and Natalie Alexander. At No. 2 doubles, Martin and Dyer lost 6-0, 6-0 to Teaghan Dishman and Shelly Richardson.

“The results are mostly predictable when we meet perennial conference champ Delta. We measure our effort by how hard we compete even when we do not match up well and in that regard most of our kids played hard,” Coach Heuer noted.

For the junior varsity, Riddell lost 6-3. Schroeder lost 6-1. Schombert lost 6-0. Hershberger fell 6-4. Ison and Hershberger lost 6-0. Welter and Whitaker lost 6-2.
