Lady Pirate netters blank Knights in opener

The Greensburg girls varsity tennis team opened the season Monday with a conference win over South Dearborn.

The Lady Pirates were able to finish four of five matches before the rain forced the conclusion of the meet.

Greensburg (1-0) beat the visiting Lady Knights 4-0.

At first singles, junior Danielle Schroeder defeated Shelbi Yoe 6-1, 6-3.

The rains fell while Schroeder and Yoe were battling, and Schroeder needed just two points for her win. The duo agreed to finish the match. Schroeder’s conference win Monday would bolster her seeding for the conference tournament later in the season.

At second singles, Olivia Slusher beat Charley Ochs 6-0, 6-2.

“That is a great start for Olivia in her first varsity singles match,” said head coach Gary Bailey of Slusher’s season-opening performance.

At third singles, Tiffany Springmeyer was leading Brianna Johnson 6-3, 3-3 before cold, windy rain forced the match to be called.

Senior Claire Welage and junior Caroline Pratt defeated Molly Schmahl and Brianna Upton 6-4, 6-1 at first doubles.

Junior Courtney Nelson and sophomore Abby Bailey beat Kayla Barrett and Cheyenne Burress 6-2, 6-1.

“I was very pleased with our performance all the way down the line,” said head coach Gary Bailey. “The conditions were not optimal, but we adjusted well.”

In junior varsity action, the Lady Pirates were victorious in two doubles matches. The pairs of Sydney Reynolds and Mackenzie Kovacich, and Kelly Meyer and Martina Kramer, all won their doubles matches 8-0.

“It was very nice to see them get off to a very nice fast start,” said Coach Bailey.

The Pirates travel to Oldenburg Academy tonight (Tuesday) for a 5 p.m. match, weather permitting.
