Greensburg tennis captured a sectional title defeating Southwestern Hanover 5-0. All positions played well from start to finish and were able to defeat their opponents quickly in straight sets As a team, we only lost five games, which is an improvement from our match with them prior to sectional. First off the court was Mary Harmon who defeated her opponent 6-0 6-0. This was probably Mary’s best match of the season from beginning to end. She started strong and had no lapses in her play. Our second point came from Hailey Duerstock and Josie Nobbe at the #2 doubles spot and they won 6-1 6-1. They were in control the entire match and they adjusted well after losing a game early on. Our third point came from our #1 doubles team of Ella Chapman and Janae Comer who won 6-1 6-0. They set themselves up well by serving strongly and being very active at the net. Abigail Hoeing defeated her opponent 6-0 6-1 at #2 singles and she did it with her consistent style of play and her extra effort forcing her opponent to hit one more shot. Last off the court was Jenna Foster at the #1 singles spot who also won 6-0 6-1. Jenna did a great job utilizing the entire court and really being aggressive off serve return. It was a great day of tennis for us and it is very rewarding to see these girls accomplish great things. They are such a great group to coach and mentor. They enjoy working hard, enjoy winning, and enjoy being around each other. We head to Bloomington South on Tuesday to take on Bloomington North. Heading into that match we are 18-0.
