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.
In other girls tennis:
Patriots 4, Eagles 1: Heritage Hills earned its first win of the season by taking all three singles matches against Evansville Day at Lincoln City.
Meridith Balbach was a 6-0, 6-4 victor at No. 1 singles and Vanessa Lahee settled in for a 7-5, 6-1 verdict at No. 2. Patriot No. 2 doubles pair Amber Schmidt and Kayla Hildenbrand won a pair of 6-2 sets.
The Pats (1-1) play their third match in three days today at Gibson Southern.
