On another hot day in the first full week of September, the Washington Lady Blue Lion tennis team welcomed the team from Unioto High School for a non-conference match at Gardner Park Wednesday, Sept. 5.
Washington won the match, four courts to one.
State-qualifier Sylvia Gray beat Megan Downing at first singles, 6-0, 6-1.
At second singles, Jen Richards defeated Nya Hamed, 6-0, 6-0.
Brooklyn Foose shut out Autum Thomas at third singles, 6-0, 6-0.
At first doubles, Sydnie Hall and Beth Wilt beat Candace Theis and Neysea Edwards, 6-1, 6-1.
At second doubles, Brynne Frederick and Payton Maddux defeated Emily Hannah and Eden Greisheimer, 6-3, 6-0.
“I am very proud of our team,” Washington head coach Samantha Leach said. “They are continuing to show improvement with each match. Megan competed against Gray, a previous state qualifier, and had several long rallies. It was a great match to watch.
“Brooklyn remains undefeated on the season and Jennifer has won her last few matches,” Leach said. “Our doubles courts are doing an excellent job as well. I can see our kids making the adjustments we have talked about in practice.”
Washington travels to Miami Trace for a Frontier Athletic Conference match Monday, Sept. 10 at 4:30 p.m.
