Cocalico edges Warwick in doubles to win, 4-3 Knights, Streaks top MC in non-league play
Andrea Aument went a perfect 2-0 in singles and doubles for the Warwick girls tennis team last Wednesday, Aug. 22 against Cocalico.
Unfortunately for the Lady Warriors, it wasn’t enough, as they dropped a tough 4-3 loss to the Eagles in a non-league match in Lititz. The loss evened Warwick’s record to 1-1 on the young season so far.
Aument clinched a tiebreaker in set two against Cocalico’s Courtney Murphy to win 6-4, 7-6 (4) at number three singles and Warwick’s Leah Blanck handled Ali Stafford 6-2, 6-2 in the number four match to account for the Lady Warriors’ two singles wins.
That offset wins by the Eagles’ Alli Witmer, who defeated Amber Weaver 6-0, 6-0, and Natalie Sukanick, a 6-0, 6-4 winner over Paige Myer in the number two match.
But the Cocalico girls took two of the three doubles matches to earn the hard-fought win. Warwick’s Maddie Class and Kelley Hershey gave Cocalico’s Murphy and Caitlin Cooper all they could handle in the third doubles match, but came up a little short, 8-6. Aument and Myer prevailed in the number two doubles match, defeating Stafford and Jill Elding 8-3 for the Lady Warriors.
In other action, the Manheim Central girls fell to 0-4 in non-league play on Monday with a 7-0 shutout loss to Manheim Township in Neffsville. Grace Kensinger had a tough match at number one singles and suffered a 6-0, 6-1 loss to the Blue Streaks’ Mann.
Last Thursday, Aug. 23, Manheim Central hosted Hershey and dropped a 6-1 decision to the Lady Trojans. Sophie Iosue accounted for Central’s only victory, defeating Hennrikus by a score of 6-2, 6-1 at number two singles.
That was their third match in four days, following a tough 4-3 loss to Hempfield in a non-league match on Wednesday, Aug. 22.
In an evenly-played battle in Landisville, the host Black Knights capitalized on a couple of very close wins, including one at third doubles where Shao and Nauman outlasted the Lady Barons’ Kendall Hunsecker and Sarah Painter, 8-6.
Central’s duo of Iosue and Kelli Barber won 8-3 at second doubles to make it interesting after the two teams split in four singles matches. Iosue rallied from a first-set loss to prevail in a three-set marathon at second singles, 2-6, 6-2, 10-6, while Jessy Miller had no problems in a 6-1, 6-0 win at number four.
In a thriller at first singles, Hempfield’s Sirdeshpande had to work overtime to hold off Kensinger, 6-4, 2-6, 12-10. More TENNIS, page B-11
