N.H. 4, Eastern 1
A couple of Lady Cats struggled early on, but when all was said and done, they emerged victorious over Eastern in the opening round of the Floyd Central Sectional last Wednesday afternoon.
Kelsey Pierson, playing No. 1 singles, was the only player from North Harrison to take a loss, suffering a 6-1, 6-2 decision to Eastern’s Christina Hartman.
At No. 2 singles, Ashlee Austin defeated Ashley Brewer, 6-1, 6-3 and at No. 3, Bree Shroyer rallied from a 1-0 deficit in the first few minutes of her match to oust Amy Lewellen, 6-1, 6-0.
On the doubles courts, No. 1s Stacy Robertson and Amanda Loughmiller had little trouble with Brooke Powers and Rebecca Costin, taking the match, 6-3, 6-0. Things weren’t much different at No. 2, where Melissa Langdon and Leah Harmon were 6-0, 6-3 winners over Sara Trueblood and Tara Wilson.
