Raiders solid in sunApril 10, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
After Monday’s contest against Evansville Mater Dei was washed out by rain, a dry evening Wednesday allowed the Southridge girls tennis team to finally take to the courts for its first match.
The Raiders didn’t disappoint.
It was a clean sweep of the singles spots for the Raiders at Pocket Athletic Conference host South Spencer and a 4-1 win to start the season.
No. 1 singles player Jocelyn Sermersheim cruised 6-1, 6-3, freshman Emily Eckert sailed in similar fashion with a 6-1, 6-4 victory at the No. 3 spot and Leah Diekhoff lost the first set 7-5 at No. 2 singles before extinguishing Cheyenne Ramsey 6-1, 6-1 in the following two sets. Taylor Miles and Megan Diekhoff rolled 6-3, 6-1 at No. 2 doubles for the other Raider win.
Southridge will hosts Northeast Dubois on Monday.
