Lady Lion tennis falls to Jackson

JACKSON — The Washington Lady Blue Lions played their first tennis match as members of the new Frontier Athletic Conference Tuesday in Jackson.

On a hot afternoon, Jackson defeated Washington, four courts to one.

At first singles, Washington’s Megan Downing was leading after winning the first set, 6-1, when opponent Kenzie Humphreys had to forfeit the match due to not feeling well due to the heat.

Jackson’s Sydney Humphreys won at second singles over Jen Richards, 6-2, 6-2.

At third singles, Jackson’s Alyson Bragg beat Sydnie Hall, 4-6, 7-5, 6-1.

At first doubles, Jackson’s Josie Ball and Lillie Houser defeated Beth Wilt and Brooklyn Foose, 6-4, 6-3.

At second doubles, Georgia Miller and Natalie Kirby of Jackson beat Brynn Frederick and Payton Maddux, 6-2, 6-1.

Washington (1-1 overall, 0-1 in the FAC) will be back in action Monday at Circleville and returns to FAC play Tuesday at Chillicothe before coming home for a match at Gardner Park Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. against Logan Elm.
