“Bella lead the way with her play. Her ability to stay calm and focused during big points is a strategy she has worked on since her freshman year. Today was a match that was mentally exhausting but she played a solid match till the end,” said WHS coach Brian Hancock.
“Alaina’s serve has really been working lately. She has been able to capitalize on using her length which allows her to win many points and hold serve. I think her confidence is rising with each match. Kenli is not only a good tennis player but also an athlete. Tonight her backhand and volleys really set the tone.”
“Both doubles matches were fun to watch. I felt like our doubles took control and really settled in in the second set.”
Cougars survive Bluejackets
ELNORA — North Daviess (9-5) overcame Mitchell by the score of 5-3 on Monday evening from Wayne Davis Field. A four-run sixth inning offered just enough breathing room for the Cougars to escape with a win.
Kyle Swartzentruber belted his fourth triple and scored the host’s first run in the fourth following Jake Miley’s RBI single. Swartzentruber’s two-run double in the sixth put the Cougars ahead to stay. Elliott Park and Jared Craven also added safeties as ND out-hit the visitors 5-4 but committed three untimely errors.
Senior Wyatt Swartzentruber threw 5 2/3 frames of one-run baseball, but freshman Zach Stoll was credited with the victory following ND’s late-game rally.
North Daviess hosts Rivet on Wednesday, travels to WRV on Friday, and entertains Barr-Reeve on Saturday morning at 11 a.m. from Wayne Davis Field.
