Decatur Central High School
Speedway High School
The ladies played a close match tonight as they fell to Speedway. The match took over 3 hours to finish, as the competition was even up and down the line up. Laura Rubio, playing only her second match at singles, dropped the first set 6-3, but found her confidence in the second set before losing 5-7. Jessie McKim, also new to singles, split sets 4-6, 7-6 (10-8) and then played a super tiebreaker in lieu of a third set. While she stayed focused and mentally tough, she ultimately lost 5-10.
Our doubles had another good night! One doubles played tough, but had a bit of a rollercoaster night between incredibly played points and unforced errors. They dropped their match 6-7 (5-7), 4-6. If only a few points had been played differently, the match could have been a victory. Our freshmen doubles team pulled out an exciting victory! Taylor covered the backcourt easily, and Yennie was a force at the net! The Sparkplugs had no answer for them! They were victorious 6-4, 6-4!
A well played over all match for the Hawks!
