Lanesville falls to NA in final, 4-1

New Albany continued its run of sectional championships last week, knocking off Lanesville in the final, 4-1.
With the exception of two courts, the host Lady Bulldogs were unstoppable.
Sarah Bielski blanked Amanda Senechal at No. 1 singles, and the doubles courts had the same result: Mallory Warren and Ashley Heishman defeated Kayla Stilger and Meagan Leffler at No. 1; at No. 2 it was Mandy Barker and Amanda Schocke racing past Kayla McCormick and Nicole Melton.
Tabitha Wernert landed Lanesville’s only team point as she sent Elle Jakoby packing at No. 3 singles, 6-3, 7-5.
At No. 2, Michele Sizemore had to go to three sets to finally settle the score against Jessica Schmelz, 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.
‘I can’t complain how we played,’ Lanesville coach Sharon Rothrock said. ‘We almost had No. 2 singles won and then who knows what would have happened after that.
‘I think we can get that sectional. The girls and I really want to get that sectional, again,’ the coach said.
