    With the Floyd Central sectional in girls’ tennis this week, last week saw most area teams simply fine tuning their games for sectional competition, which ends this week at the Floyd Central courts.
    North Harrison defeated the Eastern team 4-1 in girls’ tennis last week, in a possible match up of two Floyd Central sectional opponents.
    At the no. 1 singles spot, North Harrison’s Wynn Shroyer won a 6-2, 6-0 decision over Eastern’s Alyssa Parker.
    Eastern’s Amie Shipman won the lone spot in the Lady Musketeer’s favor, taking the no. 2 singles spot 6-4, 6-3 over the Lady Cats’ Caitlyn Janes.
    At the no. 3 singles spot, North Harrison’s Rebekah Stephenson took a 6-2, 6-3 decision over Eastern’s Alex Passafiume.
    The Lady Cats won both of the doubles spots over Eastern.
    At the no. 1 doubles spot, the Lady Cat pairing of Maggie Cassidy and Hannah Raake defeated Eastern’s top duo of Jill Ball and Paige Purkhiser, 6-4, 6-0.
    In the no. 2 doubles slot, North Harrison’s Katie Reed and Jordan Corum defeated Eastern’s Nikki Nale and India Heady, 6-0, 6-2.
    The 4-1 win over Eastern was a Mid Southern Conference (MSC) victory, and they won 3-2 over Austin Thursday, but the Lady Cats dropped a close 3-2 decision in the MSC at Clarksville Friday, in a match that had been rescheduled, due to rain.
    The individual results against Austin were almost exactly the same as those of the match with Clarksville, except that Caitlyn Janes won at the no. 2 singles spot.
    In the match at Clarksville, the Lady Cats lost all three singles matches, but won both matches in doubles.
    At no. 1 singles, Wynn Shroyer lost 7-6, 6-0, and at no. 2 singles, Caitlyn Janes lost 6-1, 7-5. At the no .3 singles spot, Hannah Raake lost a 6-4, 6-2 decision.
    At the no. 1 doubles spot, North Harrison’s duo of Maggie Cassidy and Kelsey Jacobi won 6-3, 6-1, with the North Harrison no. 2 doubles duo of Katie Reed and Jordan Corum winning a 6-1, 6-4 decision.
    “(Eastern’s a pretty good team; I was pleased that we beat them,” said North Harrison coach Sheri Shroyer.
    Against Clarksville, the lack of a winning North Harrison singles player cost the team a possible Mid Southern Conference win.
    “I needed a point out of one of my singles players, and I didn’t get it,” Shroyer said.
