LOSE TO NEWTON, BEAT SALINA SOUTH

By William

It has been a busy week for the McPherson Middle School girls tennis team as they had a road match on Monday at Newton and then returned home for a home dual with Salina South.

Against Newton on Monday, the Junior Lady Pups lost overall 6-10 which broke down to losing 4-5 in single matches and then losing 2-5 in double matches.

Highlights of the Newton dual was the play of the double tandems of Erin Olsen and Mercedes Ladwig plus Alix Wilson and Eve Hanchu as they both finished winning double matches 6-2.

At home on Tuesday the Junior Lady Pups bounced back and scored a 16-2 whopping of Salina South.

Erin Olsen won her singles match 6-0 while Brodie Kuhn won her singles match 6-2 to lead McPherson in singles play while Alix Wilson teamed up with Hannah Brubaker in one doubles match and then teamed with Eve Hanchu in a second doubles match and recorded 6-0 wins in both.

Paul Reichenberger, the Junior Lady Pups Head Coach, reflected on the Tuesday play against Salina South by saying, “After losing a close dual to Newton on Monday, our girls really bounced back and played well today. Brodie Kuhn and Maryn Sandbo dominated their matches at the top and Alix Wilson and Eve Hanchu remained undefeated on the season with their wins today. Overall the team is really playing well lately.”

Up next for the McPherson Middle School girls tennis teams will be a triangular home meet with both Prairie Hills Middle School and Hutchinson Middle School on Monday, September 28.
