Vikings will play for championship

LOOGOOTEE — Barr-Reeve entered the opening round of the girls’ tennis sectional Wednesday as the favorite against the host Lions, and the Vikings will play tonight for the tournament championship.

The Vikings defeated the Lions, 5-0, and will now play the winner of Wednesday’s second round featuring Northeast Dubois and Paoli at 5:30 p.m.

The Lions entered the season having to rebuild, and Loogootee coach Mike Tippery said that’s what his team has worked on this season.

“I’m proud of the kids,” Tippery said. “We entered this season without really any experience, and that’s what we have gained this year for the next few years to come. We’ve had a lot of girls play their first varsity matches.”

Barr-Reeve coach Mandy Hannah said she was pleased to see her team advance to continue what has been a successful season.

“I was really proud of the girls who did a good job,” Hannah said. “They were really focused and came ready to play.”

Allison Hoover defeated Emily Bateman in straight 6-1 sets at first singles and Melody Rohrer won at second singles against Erin Nelson, 6-0, 6-0.

Bethanie Knepp took third singles against Shayna Stuffle, 6-0, 6-1.

Destiny Kidwell-Hania Sisco won first doubles, 6-1, 6-0 against Michala Beasley-Tara Pennington.

Second doubles went to Baleigh Miller-Kaitlin Swartzentruber, 6-1, 6-2.

“You can never count Loogootee out,” Hannah said. “I was really glad that our girls came in and played well.”

While the opponent in the championship round was not yet known following the match, Hannah said she was anticipating the chance for her team  to play for the title.

“I’m anxious about the match tomorrow,” Hannah said. “I know that we can win, but we will have to play extremely well. We can do that. Now it’s just a matter of coming out and trying to get the job done.”
