Girls Tennis: Flivvers fall to Maroons

Girls Tennis

MENOMINEE — Kingsford, back in action after a week lay-off, bowed to Menominee 5-3 in girls tennis.

“We finally had a break this week from our streak of matches and could get some practice in, so that was a nice change of pace,” said Kingsford Coach Sarah Massie. “Despite school starting and the weather not cooperating, the girls have been practicing hard.”

Menominee won three of the four singles matches. Kingsford No. 1 Steph List was the lone winner at singles.

“Steph has been working very hard on some new things at practice, so I was happy to see her get a win,” Massie said.

Kingsford triumphed at two doubles with Annie McCole-Teagan Petschar and four doubles with Bailey Johnson-Anna Murvich.

“Our two doubles team continues to play very well together while focusing on being aggressive at the net,” Massie said. “Our four doubles duo played a long and hard fought match (to three sets). They lost the first set but as the match progressed they developed better chemistry and started trusting their shots allowing them to pull off a great win.”

The Flivvers (3-4) host Gladstone on Wednesday.

“I know some of the girls have had a long week adjusting to their new classes and practicing after school,” Massie said. “I was happy with our performances. The girls played hard and seemed to enjoy a beautiful day of tennis.”
