Lansing tennis takes on Perry
A lack of daylight cut the Lansing High tennis team's dual short with Perry-Lecompton Tuesday afternoon.
Perry's two tennis courts don't have lights, so LHS players Amy Briggs, Christine Cordes and Sarah Sargent didn't get to play their singles matches. Still, the sunlight was around long enough for the Lions to win three matches.
LHS senior captain Heidi Schultz earned an 8-6 victory over Renee Vasquez at No. 1 singles. Junior Lauren Elkins won at No. 2 singles against Dafodil Reumond, 8-6. Schultz and Elkins also teamed to defeat Poppy Reumond and Jenne Moore in doubles, 8-2.
In other matches:
- Freshman Ashley Harrington dropped a 6-3 decision to Lexzi Mapes at No. 3 singles.
- Cordes and Briggs lost in a tiebreaker, 8-7 (10-8), to Amanda Quattlebaum and Mapes.
- Harrington and Sargent lost to Maureen Muluihill and Jenna Corel, 6-3.
- Ariana Domke and Allison Dillon fell to Ashley Quattlebaum and Vasquez, 6-3.
The LHS tennis team resumes its season at 3:15 p.m. Thursday when the junior varsity plays at Mill Valley. The varsity squad is back in action at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Gardner-Edgerton Invitational.
