Shelby Dumps Sandusky

Shelby wrapped up the regular season on a triumphant note with Tuesday's 4-1 Northern Ohio League girls tennis verdict over visiting Sandusky.

The Lady Whippets, the runners-up in the conference with a 10-2 ledger, posted an overall record of 12-4.

Coach Chelsey Eldridge shuffled her lineup around with regular No. 1 singles player Katie Bowman taking the afternoon to rest up for the district tournament which begins today at Bowling Green State University. Bowman's absence offered a number of underclassmen a chance to play in new positions.

Results of the match were:

No. 1 singles - Claire Yetzer, Sh, downed Grace Winner 6-4, 6-0.

No. 2 singles - Taylor Duncan, Sh, bounced Jazmin Tomlinson 6-0, 6-1.

No. 3 singles - Sarah Harding, Sh, blanked Audrey Smith 6-0, 6-0.

No. 1 doubles - Annie McKinney and Allie Gies, Sh, lost 6-4, 4-6, 4-10.

No. 2 doubles - Savannah Howard and Hannah Stone, Sh, won 6-1, 6-0.

"Sarah Harding and Taylor Duncan really stepped up to the challenge. The doubles tandem of Hannah Stone and Savannah Howard also worked well together despite not playing together previously," said Eldridge.

Junior varsity winners for Shelby included Kendall Downing, Leah Karnes, Kristen Long and Faith Gosser.
