ST. MARY’S – The Greenville girl’s tennis team ran roughshod over the host Roughriders of St. Mary’s, 4-1 last Friday morning.

St. Mary’s had one sharp tennis player in Claire Claywood as she dispatched the Wave’s Emily Marchal 6-1, 6-0 at first singles. Natalie Milligan evened things up at second singles by only allowing three games in two sets, 6-2, 6-1 against Allie Vanderhorst. Abby Swensen used her all-court game at third singles and walloped her opponent, 6-0 6-0 for the double bagel win against Elizabeth Sutton.

First doubles tandem of Marabelle Lance and Anna Manges mangled their opponents Kara Vanaher and Lydia Babis, 7-5, 6-2, while the Wave’s second doubles duo of Felicity Lance and Faith Mansfield sent their foes Kristin Schnelle and Jenna Hawkey scurrying toward Mansfield as they slammed home a 6-3, 6-2 victory.

Junior varsity doubles squad members for the Wave consisted of Emma Tutwiler and Rose Blocher who could not block enough shots at the net and lost out 8-6 to their unnamed opponents. However, the Wave’s other junior varsity players Katie Baughman and Amanda Chui chewed up their unnamed doubles foes, 8-4 for a 1-1 count on the reserve scoreboard.

”We played well for the first time out and we were fortunate to get the victory against a squad that also played well,” Coach Jim Koontz said. “We hung in there and played consistently for the most part. This is a step in the right direction as we head into a juggernaut on Tuesday against the ”Battling Beavers” of Beavercreek. They are always well coached and gave us one of our two losses last year.”
