South Putnam tennis continues to roll

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

A rearranged Turkey Run lineup couldn't stop South Putnam's charge through the 2008 season Tuesday night. The Eagles downed Turkey Run 4-1 to remain perfect on the season.

"Everyone is playing with confidence," SPHS head coach Johnnie Briones said. "A totally different lineup for the first meeting with Turkey Run."

Whitney Warren and Liz Mink continue to play solid tennis, dispatching of their opponents in straight sets. Warren defeated Jessica Norman at No. 2 6-2 and 6-2, while Mink downed Breanna Tappan 6-4 and 6-2 at No 3 singles.

Chelsea Clark struggled for the second night in a row, losing her match at No. 1 singles 6-0 and 6-0 to Turkey Run's Annika Seeger.

The Eagles No. 1 doubles team of Cassie Davis and Megan Criss rebounded for last nights loss, with a 6-4 and 6-2 win over Kylie Walter and Candance Foxworthy. The team of Megan Klotz and Samantha Callahan took care of the Warriors' Lisa Lamb and Brittany Knott 6-3 and 6-2 at No. 2 doubles.

South Putnam also won the junior varsity contest 7-2.

"Our girls had a slow start but hung on for the win," Briones commented.

The Eagles will travel to South Vermillion Thursday at 4:30 p.m.
