Lesson learned for Ladycats in 3-2 win over Panthers


News Journal



MORROW — Consider it a lesson learned.

The Blanchester girls tennis team bounced back from a season-opening loss to Western Brown and posted a 3-2 win over Little Miami Wednesday afternoon on the Warren County courts.

Blanchester is 1-1 on the year while the Lady Panthers are 0-1.

“I was really impressed with how intelligently we played,” BHS head coach Matt Sexton said. “We learned some tough lessons against Western Brown. In this match, we put what we learned to good use.”

Lilly Tedrick at second singles posted a 7-6 (7-4), 6-1 win while both doubles teams earned victories — Alexis Vestal and Korie White at first doubles and Grace King and Lydia Falgner at second doubles.

“First doubles played an outstanding match,” said Sexton. “They were in control from the first point and played one of the cleanest matches they’ve ever played.

Lilly, after toughing out the first set, really figured out that she needed to remain calm out on the court and she raised her level and played great tennis in the second set. Second doubles, started slow but closed strong with five straight games. They also cleaned up their game and played a very smart match.”

Sexton was pleased with the play of Erin Wilson and Terra Wichterman in their singles matches. He noted the Ladycats were shorthanded in this one because of an injury, an illness and a player being out of town.
