Tennis Sectional ready to go

After one of the most competitive seasons in recent memory, the area teams from Southwestern Indiana are ready to start the postseason.

At three different locations — Loogootee, Vincennes Lincoln and North Daviess — the five area teams will begin the road to a sectional championship.

Class 3A

Washington enters today’s match against host school Vincennes Lincoln at 4:30 p.m. feeling great about its chances under second-year coach Kevin Stallman. The Hatchets lost 3-2 to Vincennes Rivet a year ago in the first round, but a strong regular season has provided optimism that this year will be different.

“If we can getting our mometum going this week, we should have a pretty decent chance,” Stallman said. “We feel like we have a good chance in the sectional.”

Washington enters the sectional with a 6-3 record in dual matches and has had a tough time finding momentum with all the rain this spring. Washington was 1-0 against the other teams in its sectional draw. Washington’s Audrey Rogers will be vital at No. 1 singles and Audra Stallman will lead at No. 1 doubles. The Hatchets beat Lincoln, 5-0,but were rained out against South Knox and Vincennes Rivet and they didn’t play Washington Catholic. The Cardinals will face the winner of Tuesday’s Vincennes Rivet-Shoals matchup Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. WC will look to Rachel May and Claire Burch against the Patriots to get off to a good start in the postseason.

“We have the potential,” Stallman said. “If we have a really good week, we can certainly win that sectional.”

Class A

At Loogootee, the host Lions (4-13) are in year two of their rebuilding plan as they enter the first round against Paoli today at 4:30 p.m. Barr-Reeve (11-2) will follow with a match against Northeast Dubois. Loogootee lost 5-0 to Dubois, Barr-Reeve and Paoli. The Lions will look to No. 1 singles’ Emily Bateman to get the Lions off and running.
