Apr. 12 Twin Lakes (T) 5:00 pm (L) 3-2
Madison Wood posted her first varsity singles win with a 6-2, 6-1 win at #2.

After dropping the first set at #1 and #3 singles, both Abby Bowen and Olivia Persons won their second, forcing a third and deciding set.

Abby battled but lost 6-1, 1-6, 6-3.

Meanwhile at #3 singles, Olivia forced a third-set tiebreak. It was definitely a gutsy performance by the freshman, who was playing a senior. Olivia won 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (5). This was her first varsity tennis win!

Apr. 18 Frankfort (T) 5:00 pm (L) 4-1
In tennis action, Abby Bowen won her first match
at #1 singles. She won the first set in a decisive
6-2, and then dropped the second set by the same
score. After the 10-minute break, Abby came back with the same fire we had seen in the first set, winning the set 6-2. This was the first of many to come for the sophomore.

Madison Wood started out hot going up 4-1 in the
first set before dropping the set 6- 4 and the second set 3-6. There were many bright spots here on which to build.

Apr. 19 Logansport (T) 5:00 pm (W) 4-1
First off the courts was the # 1 doubles team of Molly Fisher and Hannah Hopkins winning 6-4, 6-3. This was the first varsity win for both ladies.

The next point came from the #2 doubles team of Shelby Hopkins and Cloey Baldock 6-2, 6-3. This was also these ladies first varsity win. Very proud of how these ladies are starting to mesh.

The deciding point came next at #3 singles as Olivia Persons pulled out a 6-3, 7-6 (7-2) win.

The icing on the cake was Abby Bowen's win at #1 singles 6-4, 6-4.
