NH netters tearing up competition

Maturity and consistency seem to be the name of the game for North Harrison’s tennis team, which has opened the spring season with a perfect 4-0 in head-to-head matches.
The latest victim was Corydon Central, which suffered a 4-1 loss at the hands of its rival.
‘It is basically the same team I have had for three years only now they are three years older and more mature and experienced,’ North coach Pam Pitman said.
Against Corydon, Kelsey Pierson defeated Bridget Gibson, 6-2, 7-6 (7-0) at No. 1 singles, Stacy Robertson knocked off Jeanne Hood, 6-4, 6-0 at No. 2, and at No. 3 it was Bree Shroyer besting Megan Bates, 6-3, 6-3.
Leah Harmon and Megan Dean paired up to edge Alicia Nord and Bethany Shewmaker, 7-6 (9-7), 6-1 at No. 1.
Corydon’s lone point came at No. 2 doubles where Sammi Pate and Jill Hoehn were 6-3, 6-1 winners over Sarah Harris and Leigh Perryman.
