Vikings back to .500

MONTGOMERY — Coming into this season, Barr-Reeve girls tennis coach Mandy Hannah wasn't sure how her team would fit together, but so far they look just fine.

The Vikings (3-3) defeated Vincennes Lincoln, 4-0, Wednesday at Barr-Reeve. The No. 3 singles match was cancelled midway through the second set due to inclement weather.

Junior Allison Hoover defeated Myra Bauer in straight sets (6-1, 6-1), while sophomore Melody Rohrer also earned a victory in straight sets (6-0, 6-1) in No. 2 singles. Barr-Reeve sophomore Emily Lee took the first set from Janalyn Dye 6-2, and Lee led 3-1 in the second set before the rains came down and cancelled the rest of the match.

"I thought Allison (Hoover) and Melody (Rohrer) played quite well today," Hannah said. "I think they moved the ball well, and were making good decisions and getting to the net and winning some points up there. I think Emily (Lee) overcame a slow start, and ended up finishing strong." The Barr-Reeve doubles teams breezed through without breaking a sweat.

Destiny Kidwell-Hania Sisco allowed one point in a straight set victory in No. 1 doubles. The team of Baleigh Miller-Kaitlin Schwartzentruber didn't allow a point in defeating Sam Libecape-Kara Hand in No. 2 doubles.

"The doubles didn't have any problems," Hannah said. "They worked on a few things that we have been working on in practice, and I was pleased with that, especially volley placement and good ground strokes." With a diverse varsity roster with sophomores, juniors and a senior contributing, Hannah said she has been pleasantly surprised at how the team has meshed together and had some early season success.

"We've had good leadership from Allison Hoover and Hania Sisco," Hannah said. "They really have set the tone for our team. I've been very pleased with where we are so far." With the victory, the Vikings are back to .500 at 3-3, and Hannah said the team needs to just focus on everything they have been doing through the first six matches. Lynetta Graber and Maria Colvin both won their junior varsity singles matches for the Vikings.

"I've been very pleased with how much we have improved," Hannah said. "I'm really looking forward to seeing what we can do come sectional time."
