ISHPEMING — Westwood tied West Iron County 4-4 on Thursday in what might be a preview for the championship at the MHSAA Upper Peninsula Division 2 Finals in early October.

Last fall, Westwood won the D-2 title with the Wykons runners-up.

Playing at the Patriots’ courts on Thursday, the teams split singles and doubles flights, even though every match ended in two sets.

“Today’s meet was a very interesting matchup,” WHS coach Chris Jackson said. “West Iron is a very good team with quality depth throughout their lineup.

“Playing teams like this forces you to be at the top of your game to be competitive. It also indicates areas where you have to get better.”

“I was very pleased with the way our girls handled themselves today, regardless of the individual results.”

The Wykons had wins from No. 1 singles Katarina Serbentas, No. 3 singles Izzy Hoogenboom, No. 1 doubles Eden Golliher-Tori Bociek and No. 2 doubles Anna Malmquist-Emily Nelson.
