Tennis sectional pairings announcedMay 13, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
With the IHSAA girls tennis sectional tournaments scheduled to begin on Wednesday, the pairings were announced on Monday night to see which teams will face off against each other in the postseason.
Here’s a look at each area team’s sectional draw.
The Wildcats, who recently just secured their 21st consecutive Big Eight conference championship, will search for their 30th straight sectional crown beginning on Wednesday.
Jasper will open up postseason play against county rival Forest Park and will play either Pike Central or Southridge in the championship if they get past the Rangers.
The Raiders will do battle with PAC rival Pike Central in the opening game of the sectional at Jasper. Southridge fell to the Chargers 4-1 earlier this season in Huntingburg.
With a victory, the Raiders would face either Forest Park or Jasper in the sectional championship.
- Forest Park
The Rangers will open up postseason play by facing county foe Jasper at the Wildcats home courts.
Forest Park would face either Pike Central or Southridge in the championship if they defeated the Cats. The Rangers were defeated by both the Raiders and the Chargers in the regular season, but both were close (4-1, 3-2 respectively).
- Northeast Dubois
After winning their third consecutive Blue Chip crown, the Jeeps are hoping to take home their first sectional title since 2013.
The Jeeps will open up the tournament against sectional host Loogootee and then face either Paoli or Barr-Reeve in the title game if they defeat the Lions. Northeast Dubois defeated both the Lions and Vikings 3-2 in the regular season and the Rams 4-1.
- Heritage Hills
The Patriots will open up their host sectional by facing conference foe South Spencer, a team they were defeated by 4-1 earlier this year in Reo.
If the Patriots were to get past the Rebels, they’d face Tell City in the semifinal. Heritage Hills defeated the Marksmen 3-2 just last week.
