Tennis team fall to HHC foe Yorktown

RUSHVILLE — YORKTOWN – The Lady Lion tennis team traveled to Yorktown to take on the Lady Tigers. The host squad knocked off the Lady Lions 5-0 in varsity action. Rushville is 4-12 overall and 0-7 in the HHC.

“I think that five of our seven varsity kids are dealing with illness that’s really affecting their play. It’s very hard to compete when you are under the weather,” Coach Heuer said. “Allison Wainwright at No. 1 singles for the Lady Lions played the best match of the night for Rushville and turned in a strong performance despite feeling lousy. She showed some real grit and played a close, competitive match.”

Wainwright fell at No. 1 singles 6-4, 6-4 to Paige Swan. At No. 2 singles, Rosella Troyer lost 6-2, 6-1 to Blair Smith. At No. 3 singles, Sarah Harpring lost 6-0, 6-0 to Kaitlynn Phillips.

At No. 1 doubles, Jill Yager and Casey Yager lost 6-1, 6-1 to Katie Wolfert and Shelby Parker. At No. 2 doubles, Nici Martin and Lucy Dyer lost 6-0, 6-0 to Sloane Matheny and Asma Bahrami.

In junior varsity action, Haley Riddell lost 8-0 to Kate Avila.

On Monday, the Lady Lions fell to visiting Shelbyville 5-0.

Wainwright was defeated 7-5, 6-2 by Monica Cooper. Troyer lost 6-2, 6-2 to Maddie Clark. Harpring lost 6-0, 6-0 to Bri Ayers.

At No. 1 doubles, Casey Yager and Jill Yager lost 7-6 (6), 6-3 to Christina Douglass and Marena Drake. At No. 2 doubles, Martin and Dyer lost to Emma Norton and Courtney Pearce 6-1, 6-3.

For the junior varsity, Riddell lost 6-4. Katie Schroeder and Abbey Whitaker lost 6-3. Sarah Hershberger and Breanna Ison lost 6-4. Bridgette Welter and Sarah Schombert lost 6-0. Larissa Dunn and Riko Itakura lost 6-1. Natali Miller and Courtney Hall won 6-4. Kelly Lee and Samantha Fowler won 7-6.
