In a possible preview of a match up in the Floyd Central Girls’ Tennis Sectional, the Floyd Central Lady Highlanders won a 5-0 sweeping of the North Harrison Lady Cats Wednesday (April 29) at the Floyd Central courts.
It wasn’t as though North Harrison didn’t win any individual games in any of the sets; they won games in every set except the two set match at the no. 3 singles position.
The Lady Highlanders managed to avoid sending any of the five positions into a third set, either.
At the no. 1 singles position, Carmen Schreiber def. Wynn Shroyer 6-3, 6-1. The no. 2 singles spot saw Annie Hunt win 6-1, 6-2 over Caitlyn Janes. And at the no. 3 singles position, Sandra McCaffrey def. Hannah Raake 6-0, 6-0.
At no. 1 doubles, the Floyd Central combo of Chelsea Burch and Emily Wimber def. North Harrison’s duo of Maggie Cassidy and Kelsey Jacobi by a score of 6-2, 6-1.
At the no. 2 doubles spot, Floyd’s pair of Kayla Oldham and Chelsea Shackelford def. the Lady Cat’s Jordan Corum and Katie Reed 6-2, 6-1.
Floyd Central tennis coach Rick Miller was glad to get the win, but more importantly, he was glad to see his team compete in the match.
“We were really pleased. We competed well; we thought North Harrison competed well. We finally competed,” Miller said.
“We had some tough matches over the weekend,” Miller continued. “You’ve got to play hard every time out. I thought we learned a lot playing North Harrison. I’m sure they (North Harrison) learned from it.”
Miller thinks his team still has room for improvement.
“We’re always looking to improve,” said Miller. “Hopefully, we’ll keep getting better. We needed to play a good team like that, and be challenged a little bit.”
