Seniors Madeline Sego, Erin Truax and Elizabeth Coffin, playing number one, two and three singles respectively, won their matches with ease.

Sego defeated Kendra Lathan, 6-2, 6-1; Truax defeated Jordyn Pitts, 6-1, 6-0; and Coffin defeated Allison Guthrie, 6-3, 6-4.

The OV doubles teams had just as much success with number one Anitra Thompson and Rachel Truax defeating Sabrina Arnold and Erica Minor, 6-4, 6-0 and number two Jocelyn McKay and Victoria Byerly defeating Jade Asher and Robbie Urton, 6-0, 6-1.

“All of the varsity girls had easy matches tonight,” OV head coach Barbara Spinks said. “We were happy about that as they played hard matches last night with Greencastle.”

The junior varsity girls also had a winning night with each girl playing two matches.

At number one singles, Alicia Wilson split matches, losing the first 6-8 and winning the second 8-3. Lexi Heck, played number two singles, winning 8-2, 6-2 and Tiffany Kong played number three, winning 6-4.

In junior varsity doubles action, Hannah Corder & Kayla Samick won 8-5, 6-1 and Hannah King and Tiffany Kong won their match 8-5.

“The junior varsity girls have improved over the season,” coach Spinks noted, “and hopefully they will continue to play in the off season to keep getting better.”

“This ends our regular scheduled matches and we will wait to see who we will be playing in the sectionals,” coach Spinks continued. “The draw will be held Monday (today), May 16 at Northview at the softball press box at 6 p.m. Sectionals will start Wednesday, May 18 at 5 p.m. with the second round being played Thursday, May 19 at 5 p.m. The championship match will be played on Friday, May 20 at 5 p.m. All matches will be played at the Rose Hulman tennis courts in Terre Haute. The teams involved will be Greencastle, Linton, South Putnam, Northview and Owen Valley. Our record for the regular season was seven wins and four losses.”
