Date Opponent Time Score
Apr. 9 McCutcheon (T) 4:30 pm (L) 3-2
Our doubles teams struggled early, although there were bright spots. With more time to work together, these girls will make huge strides.

Our first point came at #1 singles, where Abby Bowen defeated her opponent 7-6 (3), 6-3. Abby showed poise and confidence throughout her match.

Next off the courts was #2 singles Olivia Persons. Her staying power may not have led to her getting a win, but certainly helped her younger teammate. Persons lost 4-6, 7-6 (2), 2-6 but stayed on the courts a majority of the time her #3 singles freshman teammate Olivia Hemmerich was battling it out. The 2 1/2 hour match was a test for the young player but she prevailed for her first varsity win 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6).

This was a huge improvement as we lost to McCutcheon last year 5-0.

Apr. 11 Twin Lakes (H) 5:00 pm (L) 4-1
Abby Bowen won the lone point defeating her opponent 6-1, 7-5. Abby is now 2-0 at #1 singles.

The JV team dropped their match by a score of 3-2. Kendra Cline won at #2 singles 8-6 and the team of Maddi Duncan and Rilyn Wonnell won at #2 doubles 8-7 (5).

Apr. 16 Western (T) 4:00 pm (L) 5-0
The Lady Kats traveled to Western Tuesday afternoon. Short-handed due to a school trip, the netters fell 5-0.

Abby Bowen battled at #1 singles but came up short after fighting through an early second set injury 6-3, 6-4. Olivia Hemmerich and Canelle Duriez dropped straight sets at #2 and #3 singles.

Doubles teams of Chloe McClain/Tori Watkins and Jada Mims/Leah Schliesmann likewise fell in straight sets.

Apr. 17 Frankfort (H) 5:00 pm (L) 4-1
Abby Bowen played an excellent match at #1 singles to run her record to 3-1 on the season and score the
lone point for the Lady Kats.

Apr. 18 Logansport (H) 5:00 pm Weather cancellation
Apr. 22 Lebanon (T) 5:00 pm (L) 5-0
The Lady Kats visited the unfriendly confines of Flanary Courts in Lebanon Monday night, dropping the match 5-0 to the Tigers.

The bright spots include Abby Bowen going three sets at #1 singles and demonstrating poise when her opponent challenged her mentally. Abby took the loss 0-6, 6-2, 6-4, but I want her on my side every night.
Coach Hemmerich
Apr. 23 Harrison (T) 5:00 pm (L) 5-0
We knew the trip to Harrison would be a challenging one and we were right, losing 5-0.

Again, Abby Bowen would be the last player on the courts. Abby dropped the first set 3-6 before coming back to win the second set 7-6 (4). With the match already decided, the ladies played a 10-point super tiebreaker where Abby pushed her opponent to the edge scoring eight points to her opponent’s 10. Abby has grown so much as a player and we are so proud
of her hard work.

The other ladies were overmatched, but continue to learn and improve.
