Lady Pirate tennis posts big win

The Greensburg girls tennis team tallied a big conference win over East Central Thursday. The Lady Pirates edged the visiting Trojans 3-2 in a match that head coach Gary Bailey called “hard-fought.” Every match, other than second singles, was a close one.

Junior Danielle Schroeder at first singles beat Alyssa DeFilgio 6-4, 7-6(3).

“Danielle Schroeder played a very smart match to defeat a good player from East Central,” said Bailey.

Olivia Slusher defeated Malory Owen 6-2, 6-1 at second singles.

Coach Bailey was impressed with Slusher’s performance.

“Olivia Slusher played a very, very solid match to win quickly,” said Bailey. “Olivia was off the court with her victory in hand before the first set was complete in several other matches.”

Tiffany Springmeyer lost to Sophia Imeroni 7-5, 1-6, 6-2 at third singles.

Tiffany was nip-and-tuck the entire match,” said Bailey.

Senior Claire Welage and junior Caroline Pratt topped Kuebel and Ashton 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 at first doubles.

“Number-one doubles got off to a great start, then stumbled a bit letting the other team back in it, but then put together a solid third set to get their victory,” said Bailey.

At second doubles, junior Courtney Nelson and sophomore Abby Bailey lost to Kern and Weber 7-5, 6-2.

“Number-two doubles, for some reason, just did not play well tonight,” said Coach Bailey. “They struggled a bit with their strokes.”

In junior varsity action, Coach Bailey said Kelly Meyer won a great match at first singles, defeating Meredith Struewing 8-7(6).

“She was up, then down, and then up again,” said Bailey of Meyer. “She really hung in there and got it done.

At doubles, Sydney Reynolds and Mackenzie Kovacich defeated Weigel and Lamberdines 8-2.

“Second doubles got off to a good start and never looked back,” said Bailey.

According to Bailey, Martina Kramer, Haylie Burton, senior Torrie Brogan, Ally Duerstock, Elli Burkhart, and McKinley Bottoms all are making good progress in improving every match.

“I am very pleased with how all the players are coming along right now,” said Coach Bailey. “Several of them had never played before the season, and to watch them come along is a lot of fun.”
