On a beautifully sunny Wednesday, Sept. 4, the Miami Trace girls tennis team hosted former South Central Ohio League rivals, Clinton-Massie.
The Falcons remained undefeated (8-0) on the season with a 3-2 win over Miami Trace.
At first singles, Anita Pursell lost to Nina Lazic, 2-6, 4-6.
At second singles, Bayley Thompson fell to Raelle Schulz, 2-6, 3-6.
At third singles, Cameron Bucher came back after losing the first set, 0-6, to win the match, 7-5 and 10-8.
Third singles and second doubles both went to three sets. Their respective third sets were played as a tiebreaker to 10 because, as head coach Kim Schirtzinger stated, the match was already decided.
Haiven Pepper and Kyleigh Slone lost to Kari Cragwell and Liza Duncan, 1-6, 2-6.
Savanna Wisecup and Kenzie Seyfang won at second doubles, 6-3, 4-6, 10-8 over Paige Wood and Kenzie Stinchcomb.
“We were a little slow moving tonight for some reason,” Schirtzinger said. “But Cameron at third singles came back from a 0-6 first set to win her match, so we did get some moving after a while.”
Miami Trace split a pair of j-v matches.
Alex King lost to Kari Cragwell, 5-8.
Dee Page and Emma Seyfang won, 6-4, 6-0 over Sierra Reese and Robyn Birzer.
Miami Trace will play at Logan Elm Saturday at 10 a.m.
They return to Frontier Athletic Conference play at home Tuesday, hosting Chillicothe at 4:30 p.m.
