Girls tennis post win over Madras
Last updated 4/19/2022 at Noon
The Lady Outlaws tennis team posted a 5-3 win over Madras at home on Thursday, April 14, and improved their conference record to 2-1, and are 5-4 overall.
It was a cold day with intermittent snow flurries, which made for difficult play. The team stayed positive, cheered for their teammates, and walked away with a sweep in singles play, and also a win at No. 4 doubles.
No. 1 singles player Juhree Kizziar continued her winning streak with a 6-2, 6-2 win over her opponent. Kizziar’s experience and patience wore down the scrappy, athletic White Buff player. Kizziar’s top spin serve kicked up, and was difficult to handle because of the spin and the speed.
Brooke Harper (No. 2 singles) continued her steady, consistent game and defeated her opponent 6-1, 6-1.
“Brooke defeated her opponent by hitting shots that she could not reach with pace and accuracy,” said Coach Bruce Fenn.
Maddie Pollard (No. 3 singles) defeated her opponent 6-0, 6-1. Pollard’s powerful forehand, quick feet, and her great court coverage were key to the win.
Oly Thorson (No. 4 singles) competed against a feisty Madras player, but Thorson’s consistent play gave her the 6-2, 6-4 victory.
Adrianna Luna and Sophie Rush easily defeated their opponents 6-0, 6-1, at No. 4 doubles. The duo overwhelmed their opponents with better serves, ground strokes, and volleys.
The Outlaws match against Molalla on Tuesday, April 12, was cancelled due to snow, and will hopefully be rescheduled at a later date. Sisters was to play at Philomath on Tuesday, April 19. They will play at home against North Marion on Thursday, and at home again on Friday against Creswell.
